About Behind Information Design

Information technology and information design are never just about systems, it is always about people and our needs.

Understanding information technology is necessary, but not sufficient, to developing effective solutions for users who need data, information, and knowledge. This is a theoretically complex area, but there is great need for practical solutions to user needs, good design to be implemented, and the implementations to be tested for usability. Behind Information Design introduces students to practice in, and critical thinking about the following overlapping fields:

A-Systems usability evaluations, user centered design, software quality assurance, interface development, and human-computer interaction

B-Infographics, info-aesthetics, graphic design, and instructional design

C-Knowledge representation, knowledge engineering, data mining, and data visualization
