No of lectures
Approximately 10 lectures/seminars (exact number depends on number of participants)
The course is mainly intended for PhD students (and possibly masters students) in cognitive science, but could also be interesting for PhD students in computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction of artificial intelligence. The course could also be relevant for PhD students in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy or other areas overlapping with the cognitive sciences.
The course was last given
The main goal is to familiarize students with current research issues in embodied, situated and distributed cognition, as well as the relevance of such research to human interaction with different types of technology.
Some background in cognitive science, human-computer interaction, and/or artificial intelligence.
The course mainly consists of student presentations and seminars discussing recent research articles.
Current research articles.
Mandatory student presentations, active participation in seminar discussions, and coursework.
A closely related masters course is also given for the cognitive science masters program, and therefore the PhD course is relatively independent of how many PhD students take it.
