Course objectives
The course is primarily designes for students who already have a basic overview and knowledge of technology for tracking eye movements, so-called eye-tracking. The aim of the course is to expand and deepen this knowledge, and at the same time to introduce in more detail the eye-tracking devices, which are located in HUME Lab - Experimental Humanities Laboratory at the Faculty of Arts MU. The course will introduce the operation of the equipment, the creation of experiments and data analysis in eye-tracking studies. Current research from several areas of the humanities (eg psychology and pedagogy) will also be presented, and in case of closer interest, students will be allowed to actively participate in these researches. The course will also include several visits by foreign experts in the field of eye-tracking.
