The real world is full of many kinds of different things: some of them complex, some simple; some physical, some conceptual. How we represent these things on computers is central to all of informatics. This course will help you understand what you need to know about representation from the simplest, smallest things (1's and 0's) to large complex networks.

Topic: Research Methods for Informatics and Computing
General description of Research -- Motivation, Technical tools including the different paradigms (Theory, Experiment, Computing and Data), role of collaboration (working in teams). Selected lectures from Informatics researchers with research areas relevant to undergraduates. There will also be a graduate student panel. Discussion classes on research topics and techniques covering areas such as Ethics in Research, where to apply for Graduate School, writing journal articles and proposals, how to give the elevator

Topic: Health Informatics
This is a combined advanced undergraduate and graduate course that provides an introduction to health informatics. Students will learn about technology as it relates to healthcare, and develop the skills to collaborate with health researchers to create health informatics applications. Health Informatics topics include assistive technologies, persuasive technologies, decision support, electronic health records, personal health records, and underserved populations. Methods covered include interviewing, low-fidelity prototypes and evaluation techniques. Pre-req: I300 (undergrads). No pre-req for graduate students.

Topic: Music And Programming
The over-arching goal is to learn PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN that are analogous for both music and programming. The secondary goals are to (1) attain a life-long skill through an introduction to music, and (2) preparation for designing programs in A201 or similar introductory programming courses. This is a class that does NOT require the students to read music. It does NOT require them to know a programming language. It does NOT require artistic (drawing) or musical (playing an instrument) ability. Students MUST be willing to: * pick out notes and tunes on a keyboard. * invent their own tunes—and there is a LOT OF LEEWAY here. * draw rough pictures or sketches that represent the music they invent. * share their pictures with other students to interpret as music (and vice-versa). * sign up for a free site on MySpace or Reverbnation to upload and share their music. * listen to music of selected musicians from a wide variety of styles. * try to imitate several styles. * write one or two analysis papers as part of their work. * join in a class project by inventing some music that fits the project, but is their interpretation of their part of it. * learn about design principles common to music and programming. * apply the design principles for programming to invent a piece of music. * read assigned material on the web (no textbook). * COME TO CLASS—this is VERY IMPORTANT. * EXPERIMENT with the keyboards during selected class and lab times.
