Techwr-l (ers):

I came across something that might be of interest. The association for
computing machinery special interest group on human computer
interaction <breath> has suggested curricula for four different
courses in human-computer interaction.

You can anonymous ftp them from <>
[] in either ASCII or RTF formats. The right directory
once you're there is /pub/hci/CDG. Below is the readme file explaining
the contents. There seems to be about 150 pages of material.
