CHI 2014 Education Workshop
WORKSHOP PAPERS ARE UP!
We are very excited to share the position papers submitted from our attendees, hosted on this page.
In 2011 the ACM SIGCHI Executive Committee decided to update Hewett et al.’s 1992 curriculum in the form of a "living repository of HCI education ideas and resources." Our Workshop builds on three years of research and community building in pursuit of this goal. The knowledge that we collectively produce will be used to help SIGCHI understand how to support HCI education at conferences, through chapters, and by the provision of online resources.
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
This workshop will bring together an interested and active group of HCI students, academics, and industry practitioners from across the world contribute to a flexible, living curriculum for HCI Education. While the parameters of this living curriculum have yet to be set, we know that a one-sized fits all, carved-in-stone paper document is insufficient to support the needs of an evolving field of practice. Instead, we hope to craft exciting and flexible resources to be shared by a global community of contributors.
These resources might include: pedagogical tools such as lesson plans, assignments, and bibliographies; YouTube videos; open source code; novel approaches for teaching emerging topics; general best practices; important cultural differences…
After discussing the needs of university and practitioner education, we will aim to define the parameters of a shared, living curriculum for HCI Education.
Workshop Date, Location and Times: Sunday April 27th 2014, Toronto, CA, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
