Main goal of the TUTOREM Training School:

The overarching goal of TUTOREM is to improve participants’ understanding of significant research methods commonly or increasingly used in the field of HCI. Such an enhanced understanding will enable them to select and combine appropriate research methods for their specific HCI projects and to contextualise them without unintended impacts on validity. While we recognise the importance of theories that inform the development of research methods, due to the time constraint no session is dedicated to HCI theories. Nevertheless, relevant theoretical frameworks will be addressed in individual sessions of TUTOREM, which consist of lectures, workshops and discussions. In addition, student participants will collaboratively work in small groups on a mini-project with the topic identified by the School’s lecturers.
