Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is to get to know eyetracking technology and related research possibilities in the field of humanities in theory and practice.
In the theoretical part, the history, development and technological progress of eyetracking will be presented and discussed using the system(s) available in the MediaLab of the faculty.
This is followed by a practical approach to the system through data generation with actual eyetracking research. Participants will develop research questions that can be examined with gaze data, that will be captured during a recording session.
The lecture will be accompanied by a Moodle course in which all relevant information and materials will be made available. Good general computer skills are required to participate. Some knowledge in data processing is advantageous but not mandatory. The course will be held in English.
