Psychology of Human-Technology Interaction
- Introduce the main behavioral and cognitive theories and models used in Human-Computer Interaction Research
- Teach the criticalities involved when behavioral and cognitive theories are used for designing behavior change systems and technologies for enhancing the human mind
- Provide students with basic knowledge of research through design methods
- Directly work on projects with the aim of designing new technologies for augmenting the human mind
