Organizational Informatics is a major sub-field of Social Informatics. Its research questions are closely connected: Is computing an organization likely to change it fundamentally? Similarly, how does computing change when it is organized? These two questions imply a third: Does organizing computing/computing organizations have more general, transformative social implications? Research in Organizational Informatics is heavily influenced by the tradition of Business Studies.

Topic: Research Methods for Informatics and Computing
This course introduces students to scientific research, specifically in the fields of Informatics. The course will introduce important concepts, methods, and techniques in performing research, including identifying research questions, conducting literature reviews, designing surveys and experiments, performing statistical analysis, managing team projects, using collaborative tools, and reporting results to the public. The class is centered around a semester-long team research project.

Topic: Human Robot Interaction
This course surveys the emerging field of human-robot interaction (HRI). HRI researchers tackle the social and technical challenges involved in understanding how people perceive and are affected by robots, and in creating robots that interact in ways that are natural and intuitive for human partners. We will discuss the design, evaluation, and societal significance of interactive robots from a human-centered perspective through readings, discussion, and creating HRI prototypes using Arduino.

Topic: Bioinspired Computing
Course URL (syllabus link or course homepage)
Bio-inspired computing is a field devoted to tackling complex problems using computational methods modeled after design principles encountered in nature. This course aims at a deep understanding of the distributed architectures of natural complex systems, and how those can be used to produce informatics tools with enhanced robustness, scalability, flexibility and which can interface more effectively with humans. Pre-requisites: INFO-I 211, or CSCI-C 212, or CSCI-H 212, or Instructor approval.

Topic: Data Visualization
Course URL (syllabus link or course homepage)
From car dashboards to cutting-edge scientific papers, we extensively use visual representation of data. Data visualization is becoming a crucial skill for knowledge workers, particularly in the era of big data, because visualization is critical to understand big, messy data. In this course we will learn fundamentals of data visualization and create data visualizations using various types of data.

Topic: Networks
Course URL (syllabus link or course homepage)
Networks pervade all aspects of our lives: friends, computers, the Web, and our brain are examples. The network is a general yet powerful way to represent and study simple and complex relationships. This course introduces network science as a way to understand complex patterns of connections and relationships. Once we acquire the basic tools needed to analyze and model networks through computers, we will explore increasingly complex social, infrastructure, information, and biological networks.
