To provide students with a better, well-rounded experience by allowing them to obtain skills in other fields than their own, a number of short courses will be offered. Students will be required to offer a similar course or workshop to industrial partners, fellow graduate students, undergraduate students, or the general public to further develop a resource for the local and global HCI practitioner communities.

Some examples of short courses CLUE will offer include:

  • Identifying Business Needs
  • Introduction to Project Management, Analysis and Specification
  • Introduction to programming, integration and technical problem solving.
  • Aspects of public policy and legislation on interface and interaction design.
  • Introduction to quantitative and qualitative research methods in HCI: collecting and analyzing HCI data, presenting the findings and specifying practical implications
  • Design methods applied to user interfaces: Sketching & low fidelity prototyping; codesign research methods; sensory aspects; sustainable design; materials; management.
  • Usability Evaluations
  • Public Speaking/Presentation
