To better support HCI in learning and educational contexts, we are hosting a special interest group (SIG) for CHI 2019.
This SIG will bring together researchers, educators, and practitioners with three goals in mind:
- Discussing more inclusive cross-disciplinary perspectives on learning.
- Defining future directions and standards for learning and education contributions in CHI.
- Building community across research/practice boundaries.
We are proposing this SIG in response to a growing interest in learning-related papers, as signaled by a 40% increase in CHI submissions relating to learning in recent years and the creation of the Learning, Education, and Families subcommittee for CHI 2019.
To learn more about our SIG, read our short write-up on our SIG on Learning, Education, and HCI (accepted to CHI 2019).
Are you a researcher, professional, educator, or caring human interested in how we interact with technology in the learning contexts? Then find out more and/or getting involved!
Attend our SIG at CHI ‘19 (CHI schedule).
