IAT 802 Course Description:
Quantitative Research Methods and Design
Your education, research, and thesis work at SIAT (and beyond) requires you to engage in various forms of doing and communicating research. Moreover, your success at SIAT and beyond will in part be evaluated based on the quality of your own research and communication thereof. The overarching goal of this course is to help you develop the knowledge & skills essential for designing and conducting proper scientific and quantitative research, as well as critically analyzing, discussing, and communicating it. In sum, IAT 802 is an introduction to experimental design and research methodologies where quantitative approaches are appropriate. There will be a particular focus on research design for HCI and the sciences.
