684 - Designing Consumer-Health Technologies

The course focuses on the process of designing consumer-health technologies that are based on constructs from theories about human behavior and behavior change. Using commonly-used theories (e.g., self-monitoring, goal-setting) as examples, students will learn how to generate ideas for possible feature designs, delineate their tradeoffs, and make principled implementation decisions.
