Things we can do with theory in HCI but often don't

21 June 2022 (Tuesday), 4:00 – 5:00pm HKT (GMT +8)

Venue: Zoom

Abstract
Theory is supposedly central to scholarship. Yet, the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) is confused about what theory is and what to do with it. In this talk I will present some data on what we do with theory in HCI. I will also discuss some ideas on what we instead should do with theory. They include conceptual analysis, building and testing propositions, and comparing theories.
