Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is based on participation in a number of higher seminars that are offered by the HCI-group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Before each seminar, the student reads distributed materials in the form of research articles and/or book chapters.

After each seminar, the student writes a page in their reflection diary. To complete the course, the student submits a report that is based on the texts of the reflection diary, demonstrating a clear connection to their own studies and prospective degree project.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • read and critically review published research material
  • relate ongoing research to their own education and conducted projects
  • reflect on the choice of research questions, theories and methods when planning a research project (such as for example the degree project)
  • write a research report that is correctly formated and structured according to established practices in human computer interaction
  • identify knowledge contributions both in others' and their own work.
