2018 17th International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training (ITHET)

The convergence of current technologies provides the infrastructure for transmitting and storing information faster and cheaper. For information to be used in gaining knowledge, however, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed. Such environments, knowledge media, brings together telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences to form meaningful environments that provides for a variety of learner needs. ITHET 2018 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, our special theme for this year is a fundamental one. We have previously had MOOCs as our special theme, but now they are just infrastructure. Even “Blended Learning” is what we all do anyway. In a time of the unprecedented access to knowledge through IT, it is time for us to revisit the fundamental purpose of our educational system. It is certainly not about knowledge anymore.

  • Human Factors in Smart Data Pricing

    This chapter discusses some of the basic principles and methodologies of human‐computer interaction (HCI) research. It provides a detailed overview of findings from previous HCI works that have studied user psychology in energy markets, home network management, and bandwidth pricing. The chapter explains how day‐ahead dynamic time‐dependent pricing (DDTDP) has the potential to account for the lessons learned from previous HCI research and meet the design goals of creating a "win‐win" for both consumers and operators. It talks about the perspectives of various stakeholders of the Internet ecosystem on the feasibility and promise of DDTDP. The system implementation and the graphical user interface (GUI) features are presented, followed by a discussion on the results from the trial using both HCI‐based qualitative findings and quantitative validation. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the results learned from this trial and past HCI works.

This book walks you through a classic adverse event as a case study and shows you how.</p><p>It is a practical guide to continuously improving your healthcare environment, processes, tools, and ultimate outcomes, through the discipline of human factors. Using this book, you as a healthcare professional can improve patient safety and quality of care.</p><p>Adverse events are a major concern in healthcare today. As the complexity of healthcare increases-with technological advances and information overload-the field of human factors offers practical approaches to understand the situation, mitigate risk, and improve outcomes.</p><p>The first part of this book presents a human factors conceptual framework, and the second part offers a systematic, pragmatic approach. Both the framework and the approach are employed to analyze and understand healthcare situations, both proactively-for constant improvement- and reactively-learning from adverse events.</p><p>This book guides healthcare professionals through the process of mapping the environmental and human factors; assessing them in relation to the tasks each person performs; recognizing how gaps in the fit between human capabilities and the demands of the task in the environment have a ripple effect that increases risk; and drawing conclusions about what types of changes facilitate improvement and mitigate risk, thereby contributing to improved healthcare outcomes.</p>

  • Core-Task Design:A Practice-Theory Approach to Human Factors

    This book focuses on design of work from the human-factors (HF) perspective. In the approach referred to as Core-Task Design (CTD), work is considered practice, composed of human actors, the physical and social environment, and the tools used for reaching the actors' objectives. This book begins with consideration of an industrial case, the modernization of a nuclear power plant automation system, and the related human-system interfaces in the control room. This case illustrates generic design dilemmas that invite one to revisit human-factors research methodology: Human factors should adopt practice as a new unit of analysis and should accept intervention as an inherent feature of its methodology. These suggestions are put into practice in the CTD approach, according to which three general design functions are performed, those being: -understand-to-generalize--empirical analysis of the work at hand, -foresee-the-promise--creation of concepts for future work, and -in ervene-to-develop--participatory development and design of work. For fulfillment fulfillment of each of the design functions, several CTD methods are introduced. The methods are aimed at modeling the core task and analyzing how the actors actually take the core task features into account in order to achieve balance between potentially conflicting demands in action. Thereby, new understanding of the core task is acquired. Further methods focus on projecting the roles and functionality of technologies in the future work and on implementing changes to the work. Specific studies of the nuclear power plant's control-room renewal constitute an example demonstrating a core task and the associated methods. We argue that the CTD approach offers clear utility for the design of future technology, work, and everyday services and environments. CTD utilizes achievements of practice theory in the social sciences to generate a creative synthesis of Cognitive Work Analysis, semiotic analy is of practice, and the cultural-historical theory of activity. Core- Task Design facilitates dialogue among human-factors experts, design engineers, and end users in their joint development of work. The intended audience of this book is students, researchers, and practitioners of human factors, industrial art and design, and instrumentation and control-system design.

  • Fieldwork for Healthcare:Guidance for Investigating Human Factors in Computing Systems

    Conducting fieldwork for investigating technology use in healthcare is a challenging undertaking, and yet there is little in the way of community support and guidance for conducting these studies. There is a need for better knowledge sharing and resources to facilitate learning. This is the second of two volumes designed as a collective graduate guidebook for conducting fieldwork in healthcare. This volume brings together thematic chapters that draw out issues and lessons learned from practical experience. Researchers who have first-hand experience of conducting healthcare fieldwork collaborated to write these chapters. This volume contains insights, tips, and tricks from studies in clinical and non-clinical environments, from hospital to home. This volume starts with an introduction to the ethics and governance procedures a researcher might encounter when conducting fieldwork in this sensitive study area. Subsequent chapters address specific aspects of conducting situated healthcare esearch. Chapters on readying the researcher and relationships in the medical domain break down some of the complex social aspects of this type of research. They are followed by chapters on the practicalities of collecting data and implementing interventions, which focus on domain-specific issues that may arise. Finally, we close the volume by discussing the management of impact in healthcare fieldwork. The guidance contained in these chapters enables new researchers to form their project plans and also their contingency plans in this complex and challenging domain. For more experienced researchers, it offers advice and support through familiar stories and experiences. For supervisors and teachers, it offers a source of reference and debate. Together with the first volume, Fieldwork for Healthcare: Case Studies Investigating Human Factors in Computing systems, these books provide a substantive resource on how to conduct fieldwork in healthcare. Table of Contents: Preface / Acknowledgm nts / Ethics, Governance, and Patient and Public Involvement in Healthcare / Readying the Researcher for Fieldwork in Healthcare / Establishing and Maintaining Relationships in Healthcare Fields / Practicalities of Data Collection in Healthcare Fieldwork / Healthcare Intervention Studies "In the Wild" / Impact of Fieldwork in Healthcare: Understanding Impact on Researchers, Research, Practice, and Beyond / References / Biographies

  • Fieldwork for Healthcare:Case Studies Investigating Human Factors in Computing Systems

    Performing fieldwork in healthcare settings is significantly different from fieldwork in other domains and it presents unique challenges to researchers. Whilst results are reported in research papers, the details of how to actually perform these fieldwork studies are not. This is the first of two volumes designed as a collective graduate guidebook for conducting fieldwork in healthcare. This volume brings together the experiences of established researchers who do fieldwork in clinical and non-clinical settings, focusing on how people interact with healthcare technology, in the form of case studies. These case studies are all personal, reflective accounts of challenges faced and lessons learned, which future researchers might also learn from. We open with an account of studies in the Operating Room, focusing on the role of the researcher, and how participants engage and resist engaging with the research process. Subsequent case studies address themes in a variety of hospital settings, hich highlight the variability that is experienced across study settings and the importance of context in shaping what is possible when conducting research in hospitals. Recognising and dealing with emotions, strategies for gaining access, and data gathering are themes that pervade the studies. Later case studies introduce research involving collaborative design and intervention studies, which seek to have an immediate impact on practice. Mental health is a theme of two intervention studies as we move out of the hospital to engage with vulnerable participants suffering from long-term conditions and people in the home. This volume closes with an intervention study in the developing world that ends with some tips for conducting studies in healthcare. Such tips are synthesised through the thematic chapters presented in the companion volume.

  • Human Factors in Reliable Design

  • Human Factors in Software Engineering

    The study of human factors ranges across a continuum from the philosophical meaning of the nature of work to the details of optimal screen design. The product and process aspects of this study greatly influence the acceptance of the product by the user and the cost of development. The details of human factor design for end users have received the most attention, perhaps because of the work of pioneers like Henry Dreyfuss at Bell Laboratories whose elegant design of everyday things enriches our lives, Alan Kay who made computers comprehensible to non-programmers and Steve Jobs whose iPod was the hot 2004 product. * A Click in the Right Direction * Managing Things, Managing People * Knowledge Workers * Collaborative Management * FAA Rationale for Human Factors Design * Reach Out and Touch Something * System Effectiveness in Human Factors Terms * What to Look for in COTS * Simple Guidelines for Managing Development * How Much Should the System Do? * Screen Icon Design * Short- and Long-Term Memory * Emerging Technology * Pleasing the Client by Pleasing the Developers * The Bell Laboratories Philosophy * So You Want to Be a Manager * Additional Problems * Structured Programming * UP and UML * Class Diagram * Measuring Complexity * Coding Styles * Team Coding * Code Inspections * A Must Read for Trustworthy Software En gineers * Coding for Parallelism * Threats * Additional Problems
