User experience (UX) research systematically analyzes users and their requirements in order to shed light on the process of designing the experiences users make in interaction with digital technologies and policies.
During the seminar, (groups of) students employ existing and novel research theories, concepts, tools, and methods (e.g., interviews, surveys, experiments) to uncover users' cognitions, emotions and behaviors while interacting with state-of-the-art digital technologies. Approach and results of the research projects and the implications for the design and development of digital technologies, policies and strategy are written down in a seminar paper, presented, and discussed with peers and industry experts during block sessions.
To support students in conducting their research projects, scientific sessions introducing research design, implementation, and presentation as well as feedback sessions are provided.
After completing the course, students are able to
- Analyze scientific literature to independently define relevant research problems
- Use quantitative or qualitative research methods to analyze those problems
- Write and review seminar papers
- Critically reflect, present, and discuss research design and results within the audience of the seminar
- Give adequate feedback to complex challenges
- Develop skills in collaborative interaction with peers.
- Master Business Administration
- Master Economics
- Master Computer Science
- Master Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
Topics and basic literature will be introduced and announced in the first session.
More details on the structure, dates and course materials will be announced in due time in ILIAS.
(The exact dates and the frequency of the seminar will also be announced here as well)
