Fundamentals of Situated Interaction applies the principles of instrumental interaction and co-adaptation to the design of interactive systems.

About

Fundamentals of Situated Interaction is designed for advanced students in Human-Computer Interaction. The course deconstructs the concept of interaction, and then uses the principles of Instrumental Interaction and Co-Adaptation to generate innovative interactive systems. Students will be asked to read and discuss research papers, perform a series of exercises, and then add new entries to the HCI Interaction Museum.
