In this UX course, we will survey theories and findings from the social sciences (especially psychology); with special attention to how these concepts influence the way we design for human interaction. We will cover how people perceive and process information, motor capabilities and limitations, decision-making and problem solving, and how emotion and social factors impact user experience. We will also cover best practices for designing systems to align with how people work.
