Kursens huvudsakliga innehåll

The course gives both an orientation in the different research methods used in the fields of Media Technology and Human-Computer Interaction, and allows the PhD student to develop a more solid understanding of the methods he/she plans to use in dissertation work. In the course, the student will learn to critically analyse fundamental notions in the two fields, such as consumer and user, labour and leisure, discourse and ideology, and learn to formulate and evaluate research questions. The student will learn to understand the different values and disadvantages with different research methods, such as qualitative and quantitative methods, conceptual analysis and interpretation, participatory research, etc. Further, the student will become familiar with some of the problems encountered in interdisciplinary research and cooperative research.
