Use of HCI Components into IT Courses

Anrieta Draganova and Patrick Doran

Abstract—This paper presents guidelines for the adoption of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) subject materials at an undergraduate level of an Information Technology (IT) program. The authors develop a rationale for integrating HCI-focused materials into Information Technology (IT) curriculum. Lists of important HCI instructional materials and skills that undergraduate learners could use to enhance their knowledge for effective professional careers in the industry are provided. Several approaches for incorporating HCI components into existing and new IT courses are discussed. Based upon the authors experience and knowledge of HCI-focused courses, there are suggestions for applying cognitive pedagogy for teaching undergraduate HCI courses where experience and knowledge support the theory.

Index Terms—Human factors, human computer interaction (HCI), IT course program, cognitive pedagogy.
