Every Thursday during the fall quarter of 2013, an interdisciplinary mix of invited speakers will share their thoughts and research on design that engages the world, often leveraging scale in new and exciting ways. Topics will include online learning, social computing, civic engagement, crowdsourcing, and more.
Details on upcoming talks and speakers will be posted on this Web page, and the campus community and members of the public are invited to attend the lectures. “All are welcome,” says Klemmer. “Students, faculty, coaches, robots…” Klemmer also offers a separate course on “Human-Computer Interaction” over the Coursera network. (He will also deliver a guest lecture in a series organized by the Qualcomm Institute’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) project and the UC San Diego Education Initiative. Click here for details.)
Design is a focus of new faculty recruitment. The Cognitive Science department seeks candidates for a new faculty hire in design. Apply by December 15 for full consideration. Computer Science & Engineering is also hiring faculty, with an emphasis on human-computer interaction; apply by January 1 for full consideration.
You have the option to sign up for one unit of credit in Cognitive Science (COGS260) or Computer Science and Engineering (CSE290). Prof. Klemmer is also teaches “Research Topics in HCI” this quarter (COGS230/CSE260) with TA Laura Pina. His fall office hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 5pm-6pm in Atkinson Hall, Room 6302.
