This interdisciplinary graduate course focuses on the ways in which researchers and community members collaborate to conduct research on actual problems, with the aim to solve them to improve one’s life. The major goal is to provide doctoral students with an understanding of useful theories, strategies of AR, an appreciation of advantages and limitations of this strategy, and skills necessary for conducting AR projects. Towards the end of the course, students will be expected to design an AR project on a topic relevant to them.
