The account for humans has long been valued in the research and practices in human-computer interaction studies. While the early focuses on ergonomics and human factors have fuelled the instrumental perspective of technology, the recent emphasis in the past decade on user experiences with computational objects and interactive technologies has called forth a more empathetic and holistic understanding of human in interaction design. This talk will review the background knowledge of human cognition and behaviour, including human cognition and information processing process. Examples of designs and design treatments are given to illustrate principles and advice regarding the methodological design of user research. Finally the reflection of managing human features is provided to muse on consideration for technology design and redesign.
