Haiyi Zhu is an assistant professor in the computer science department at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. She received her PhD degree from the Human Computer Interaction Institute at CMU in 2015. She also received a master degree in human computer interaction from CMU in 2012 and received a BA in computer science at Tsinghua University in 2009. Her research combines social science theory, quantitative methods, and computational techniques (machine learning and statistics) to understand the principles underlying large-scale online social systems such as peer production communities (e.g., Wikipedia and StackOverflow), social networking sites (e.g., Facebook), massive online open classes (e.g., Coursera) and sharing economy systems (e.g., Uber, Airbnb and Couchsurfing).

In this course you will learn and practice techniques of user research and early UI design exploration. First, you will learn and practice several techniques for user research, including in-person research and survey and log-analysis techniques. Then, you will learn to analyze and deliver user research in forms that support UI design, including personas, use cases, tasks, and scenarios. Finally, you will learn and practice ideation techniques that start from user research and broadly generate potential design ideas.

In this course you will learn how to design and prototype user interfaces to address the users and tasks identified in user research. Through a series of lectures and exercises, you will learn and practice paper- and other low-fidelity prototyping techniques; you will learn and apply principles from graphic design, including design patterns; you will learn to write a design rationale; and you will learn how to design for specific populations and situations, including principles and practices of accessible design.

In this course you will learn and practice several techniques for user interface evaluation. First we start with techniques that can be applied alone or in a design team, including action analysis, walkthroughs, and heuristic evaluation. Then we move on to user testing, including learning from a series of usability tests carried out in a real usability lab, and techniques to carry out your own tests even without a lab.
