About this event

Cognitive Human Factors for Designers

Many product designers have never taken a university-level class on cognitive human factors or cognitive science. This set of one-hour workshops is designed to remedy that. It provides a crash course on how the mind works, and its implications for the design of controls, displays, instruction for use, information architecture design, and other factors.

Session 1 - Cognitive Resources and Cognitive Economy

Session 2 (Jan.18, 2022) - Sensation and Perception

Session 3 (TBD) - Attention and Memory

Session 4 (TBD) - Learning, Judgment and Decision Making

Participants will walk away with a “nuts and bolts” understanding of human cognitive capabilities and limitations, as well as their implications for design. Additionally, they will understand the reasoning behind many of the most important heuristics and guidelines in the design of user interfaces, enabling them to address new design challenges.
