      • Be knowledgeable about human-computer interaction concepts and techniques, and be able to recognize good and bad design in the world.

      • Beyond that, students will have a vocabulary to describe why a design fails and what must be done to improve the design. 

      • Demonstrate that design is a systematic and data driven process. 

      • Gain experience as a designer of interactive technology by getting your hands dirty prototyping interfaces and functions. You will learn how best to create the most cost-effective functional prototype to elicit user needs. 

      • In other words, you are not expected to build a commercial-strength system in this class, but you would know what such a system would entail for its successful adoption. 

      • Learn quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate technology for usability.

      • Understand how to design and implement information visualizations. 

      • Know how information visualizations use dynamic interaction methods to help users understand data. 

      • Learn to apply an understanding of human perceptual and cognitive capabilities to the design of information visualizations. 

      • Develop skills in critiquing different visualization techniques in the context of user goals and objectives.

      • Learn how to implement compelling information visualizations.
