'Research Methods for Human-Computer Interaction is a wonderful resource for both students and practitioners who need to take a scientific approach to the design of user interfaces. It provides thorough introductions to many important topics. This is the first time that such a wide range of expert advice on the methods borrowed by HCI from other disciplines has been gathered into a single volume. It includes not only introductions to standard methods, but also recent advanced techniques, as well as a few alternative views from senior researchers who challenge conventional opinion.' Dr Alan Blackwell, Reader in Interdisciplinary Design, University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory
A single resource, demonstrating a range of commonly used research methods in HCI, drawing on its background disciplines. Students will learn how to approach experimental design, statistics and theory; get help devising questionnaires and analysing qualitative data; and learn how to develop new methodologies and write up their work.
