Teaching Media and Delivery Methods
Each live session will be either a lecture or a discussion on a subject prepared in advance. It may include quizzes of 15 minutes at the beginning of the live session. The results of these quizzes may be included in the final score of the course for each student.
It is required that each student read the handouts prepared one week before each live session. This is a very important requirement since live session should be interactive as much as possible.
Lectures will be formally given using slides (video projection) and black/white board text and graphic presentations. Movies may be projected. At the end of each live session a small exercise will be given to make theoretical concepts more concrete and applicable.
Grading Weights by Course Element
All live session have the same weight, i.e., students are required to be present for all live sessions (the list of participant students will be made at the beginning of each session).
Evaluation will be conducted as follows:
No specific laboratory will be used.
Teamwork Applications in the Course
Interaction design and evaluation of a device, e.g., FMS, GPS or iPhone, will be carried out in the form of a team-building exercise. Group homework will be required for this part of the course.
Texts and References
Student Materials Beyond Texts, References, and Common Student Materials
