INF 352 - Value Sensitive Design

3 hours
Designers of information technology tools, systems, and services often embed their values (or the values of their superiors) into the products they create. This course provides an introduction to the value-sensitive design of information systems and technologies. Students will examine existing systems from a value-sensitive design perspective while employing conceptual, technical, and empirical methods. Of primary concern in this class are value issues related to personal autonomy, privacy, property, trust, and accountability. Learning experiences in this course will employ literature-based discussion, research-based writing assignments, and team-based technology critiques.

Prerequisite(s): INF 110  and INF 120
