Description: This context area will cover principles of interface design and cognitive science. The readings will include human-computer interaction, cognition in interface design, and focus of attention / divided attention issues.

Written Requirement: The written requirement for this area will consist of a take-home exam of approximately three questions whose answers will require a good grasp of cognition and interface design, to be evaluated by Chris Schmandt.

Note: readings in green are readings not in the official, signed proposal, but which I discovered later and think would be of interest to others.
