Q1: HCI fit in today’s model curricula for
MIS?
  Does it have to?
  MIS and HCI
           Common interests in analysis and design of useful interactive system.
           Different focuses
               Information economics for MIS
               Aesthetic design for HCI


  Position of MIS to HCI
       Regard         HCI as a distinctively different area of research
           HCI major?

       Open        minded
           There is nothing like “genuine HCI” vs. “faked HCI”.

       Get     help
           Do not try to do it all by yourself.
           Do not be confined in the ivory tower.
