This course explores the behavioral foundations of communication technology and the information sciences, and the ways in which theories and methods from the behavioral sciences play a role in understanding people's use of, access to and interactions with information and communication technologies. Multiple levels of analysis—individual, small group, and larger collectives—will be included, along with multiple disciplinary perspectives. Course topics will include: human perception and cognition; cognitive perspectives on design, attention and memory; psychological theories of language use and self-presentation in computer-mediated communication; social psychological perspectives on coordination and group work, social science theories of social ties and relationships; user motivation, persuasion, and more.
