### Course Goals
### Course Description
<!-- TODO: Course Description -->
This course will introduce you to the fundamental principles of human-computer interaction (HCI), more often referred to as "User Experience" in industry and professional contexts. You will try out a variety of research and design techniques through a team-based human-centered design project. By the end of the quarter you should have material of appropriate quality for including in a portfolio or discussing in a job interview.
That said, you will not become a UX expert in a single 10-week course. You will leave this course with a better understanding of what skills you might wish to develop further on your own or through future coursework.
Given that most PSU students will not go on to be UX professionals, the larger goal of the course is to help you understand how, when, and why HCI/UX expertise can contribute to technology design and development.

### Credits
This course is based on a course I developed as a Graduate Student Instructor at University of California, Irvine and which was itself based on the Intro to HCI course I took as part of my MS in HCI at Georgia Tech. Although it has evolved in the years since, the general structure of the course benefited greatly from the input of [Lynn Dombrowski](http://lynndombrowski.com), [Jed Brubaker](https://jedbrubaker.com), [Gillian Hayes](http://www.gillianhayes.com/), [Paul Dourish](http://www.dourish.com/), and [Lilly Irani](https://quote.ucsd.edu/lirani/).

This is a two-hour course, which means that you should spend approximately four (4) hours on out-of-class work each week. This includes both reading assignments in preparation for class, as well as research, writing, and/or programming assignments as applicable.
