Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
Starting June 22, we're offering an 8-week bootcamp!
Join a collaborative space that unites top-of-the-field researches and talented people around the world. Participate in seminars, workshops and networking opportunities.
Experience world-renowned research in a whole new way!
Our Vision for transforming Knowledge-sharing with the Research Community
There is no doubt that the way we interact with computers is changing by the day. Today, with user experience arguably deciding the success of a product, companies are prioritizing on user-centric design- one necessary industrial application to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
That's why we're collaborating with top-of-the-field HCI experts to bring you this bootcamp - so we can help you develop new skills in HCI that can help you stay current in your research or job-related endeavors.
We understand that learning new content is challenging, that's why we focus on micro-learning through weekly seminars and group projects. Our content is also catered for everyone regardless of your background or past experience.
This summer our goal is to:
Keep you posted about state-of-art HCI research
Introduce HCI and research methodologies to those who are interested in learning
Inspire students to come up with creative solutions to real world problems
Here's what you will gain:
Access to high-quality content created by top-of-the-field researchers in HCI
Work closely with HCI researchers to understand diverse perspectives and research methodologies
Gain hands-on project experience! Apply what you've learned by working in teams to tackle real-world problems
Network and take advantage of coaching and mentorship opportunities participating with experts
Flexible structure - complete the bootcamp remotely and take advantage of our asynchronous learning activities
Achieve a Digital Certificate
HCI research opportunities may be available after the bootcamp
Meet Our Research Community
