Stimulating Entrepreneurship in Teaching Human Computer Interaction

by   Dusanka Boskovic, et al.

Software development requires understanding of users, user needs, user tasks and context in which they are operating. These skills are familiar to entrepreneurs, product managers, and marketing experts. However, our teaching experience suggests that students generally find these topics less attractive as they perceive them to be far too theoretical and thus, not as useful. During the years of teaching the Human Computer Interaction course we have noticed students' preferences for learning technology oriented methods, or what we refer to topics belonging to solution domain. The changes in the modernized HCI course introduced Product Market Fit canvas in order to bridge the gap between 'theoretical' and 'practical' part of the course.
