Fall semesters

Design and Analysis of Research in ISLT: Required as one of your three doctoral seminars.
Read and analyze a variety of research studies in our discipline in order to learn to propose and write your own research proposal.

Spring semesters — Rotation of the following Topics

Human Centered Computing Interactions (Spring 2023)
Human Centered Computer Interaction (HCCI) is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation, and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surrounding these systems. This course provides an introduction to the HCI field while focusing on the use and adaptation of existing HCCI theories and research to a range of interface design problems.
Human Information Behavior (Spring 2022)
Among the important tasks of information professionals is a need to identify, analyze and model the users of information. In this course the students will be introduced to the theories and techniques of human information behavior that have emerged within the field of library and information science. The students will also learn about how the study of human information behavior relates to other fields, such as education, psychology, decision-making, and communications.
Culture, Information, & Technology (Spring 2021)
This doctoral seminar will investigate the relationship between culture, information, and technology, specifically focusing on how various cultures think of, interact with, and determine what signifies information and/or technology in their contexts. The course will explore cultural, social, and epistemological theories, and will use a qualitative framework to examine information transmission and communication, information and communication technologies, and cultural mediation of information and technology.
Human Centered Computing Interactions (Spring 2020)
Human Centered Computer Interaction (HCCI) is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation, and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surrounding these systems. This course provides an introduction to the HCI field while focusing on the use and adaptation of existing HCCI theories and research to a range of interface design problems.
