Designing Personal Informatics Designers: Creating a Graduate Course in Personal Informatics
Erik Hofer

In this position paper, I describe the design of a graduate-level course in user-experience and interaction design for personal informatics applications. This master’s level course was taught in Winter 2011 at the University of Michigan School of Information in order to introduce students interested in designing personal informatics tools to a variety of interdisciplinary design challenges inherent in personal informatics applications, including measurement theory, methods, models of behavior change, game dynamics, visualization and ethics.
