Human-centered SE research

Software engineering is a complex human activity–both in terms of individual cognition and social dynamics in a team. In the tutorial at ISEC 2023, I will give a whirldwind tour of the various kinds of human-centered research in software engineering.

During the session, participants will:

  • gain a broad overview of human-centered research questions possible in SE and frame their own for their projects,
  • decide on possible methods they can adopt to answer their human-centered questions,
  • learn the background to read and critically evaluate and interpret human factors research in SE,
  • gain hands on experience with qualitative coding, and
  • gather various useful “tips” for writing up human-centered SE research.

The following material is made available after the course.
