In-depth examination of a specialized topic in an emerging area of human centered design and engineering.
Every day, millions of people make decisions in digital environments or supported by software tools. Designers of sociotechnical systems influence the choices people make, both intentionally and inadvertently, with their design decisions. In HCDE 548, we will discuss several social influence theories, ways of building such influence into systems, and ways of evaluating such systems — including results of prior studies and planning our own.
