CHI 2014 Workshop on Values & Design in HCI Education: Call for Participation
Warm up (30 mins): To start the workshop, the organizers will provide a synthesis of participant responses from the pre-workshop discussion and set out the goals and agenda for the workshop.
Share (60 mins): Participants will form small groups and share examples of approaches they have used to teach values in design, emphasizing both successes and failures of the approach.
Report (30 mins): Groups will be asked to synthesize their findings from the sharing session and describe best practices and lessons learned across approaches.
Practice & Critique (60 mins): Best practices and lessons learned from the groups will be used as a framework for evaluating specific approaches to teaching values and design, including Envisioning Cards, Values-at-Play, values levers, and design workbooks. Each organizer will take on the role of instructor and guide a small group through an exercise using a technique. Group members, in the role of learners, will use the framework from the morning session to critique the approaches. Together the groups will refine new ways to use those methods for engaging students, practitioners, and other researchers.
Report (30 mins): After lunch, groups will report on their new approaches to using techniques for teaching about values and design.
Create (90 mins): With a set of criteria and best practices in place, new groups will form to apply lessons from the day into new tools for teaching values and design. Groups may choose to co-create a course syllabus, conference workshop, begin a report or publication for the SIGCHI Bulletin or interactions, or engage in another tangible deliverable related to values and design in HCI education.
Report & Synthesize (60 mins): The workshop will end with a roundup of insights and opportunities for future work, including outlining an article for interactions magazine about compelling practices for addressing values and design in HCI education.
Ongoing: Throughout the day, the organizers will document conversations and artifacts of the groups’ efforts, and participants will leave with a set of vetted approaches and tools for teaching values and design.
Post-workshop: Workshop participants and organizers will collaboratively create a poster based on the results of the workshop to be presented at the CHI 2014 workshop poster session. Papers and projects presented at and created during the workshop, will be collected and added to an existing online repository to further support dissemination of the group’s effort through other outlets such as the SIGCHI Bulletin, interactions, or other appropriate journals/scholarly magazines.
