This textbook brings together both new and traditional research methods in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). Research methods include interviews and observations, ethnography, grounded theory and analysis of digital traces of behavior. Readers will gain an understanding of the type of knowledge each method provides, its disciplinary roots and how each contributes to understanding users, user behavior and the context of use. The background context, clear explanations and sample exercises make this an ideal textbook for graduate students, as well as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners. 'It is an impressive collection in terms of the level of detail and variety.' (M. Sasikumar, ACM Computing Reviews #CR144066)

"It is a book about the different ways in which 'knowing' happens in HCI. ... it is an impressive collection in terms of the level of detail and variety. ... There are plenty of references in each chapter, which are good for those who want to dive deeper. ... this is a welcome book for those with an interest in HCI. It will also be useful for any kind of research involving users and their experience." (M. Sasikumar, Computing Reviews, December, 2015)
