The usability paradox

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleScientificpeer-review


This position paper describes the issues surrounding teaching Human Centered Software Engineering (HCSE).We identify a lack of methods in software engineering practices in new media projects. To get a better understanding of that, we are currently conducting a study to identify the current practices in the new media industry. The Human Centered ICT Toolkit is discussed, what it achieved, and what is missing. Looking at problems from an educational viewpoint, we propose to create an integrated HCSE approach by improving the descriptions of methods and their relations giving richer meaning to students and improving understanding of HCSE.
