Overview

In the field of human-computer interaction (HCI), researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines in the social sciences, information technology, engineering, and computer science all strive to improve the relationship, or interface, between person and machine. The multidisciplinary tradition of HCI certainly has enriched its development. But its rich diversity, and the lack of any comprehensive resource that describes it in detail, has also made it difficult for many to attain a sufficient grasp of HCI's varied foundations in and approaches to science.

This book—the first of its kind—fills a void for those wishing to thoroughly understand HCI's diverse foundations. It brings together a cross section of internationally-known HCI researchers, each of whom has successfully applied a unique scientific method to solve practical problems. HCI Models, Theories, and Frameworks squarely addresses the issue that other books only touch upon—how HCI theory can support practice.

Features:

* Traces HCI research from its origins
* Surveys 14 different successful research approaches in HCI
* Presents each approach in a common format to facilitate comparisons
* Web-enhanced with course materials at http://www.HCImodels.com.

Audience: Professionals, educators, and students in human-computer interaction (HCI) who want to gain a better understanding of the theoretical bases of HCI, and who will make use of a good background, refresher, reference to the field and/or index to the literature.
