HCI-Forschung und -Lehre in Zeiten von COVID19

In Zeiten von COVID19 steht die HCI-Forschung und -Lehre vor einigen wichtigen Herausforderungen ... Um Ideen zu diesem Thema auszutauschen, haben Mitglieder unserer Gemeinschaft kürzlich zwei Online-Veranstaltungen (mit-)organisiert. Diese Veranstaltungen wurden aufgezeichnet und können für andere HCI-Forscher hilfreich sein.

07.04.2020: Online Talkshow: How to do HCI research if your users are off limits?

How to move our research forward, if we cannot interact with people personally? This discussion happens at many HCI groups – ranging from a student project to large multinational collaborative projects.

Upfront – we do not have the answers, but we have ideas and experiences. Hence we do this online event – to share experiences and to learn more.

People around the world are staying at home to protect themselves and their communities from the ongoing pandemic. In a field dedicated to interacting with users, how do we carry out research when we are not allowed to come in contact with other people? What strategies can the HCI community employ to make the best use of their time working from home?

We are bringing together HCI researchers with a variety of backgrounds and expertise to discuss this timely topic, and brainstorm ways to do good scientific work while the world is on lockdown.

Each panelist will start with a statement about the experience (max. 120 Seconds) and then we move into an open panel discussion. We plan to record the session.

14.04.2020: Online Panel Discussion: How to make remote HCI teaching useful, engaging and exciting?

Is your online course really better than a book? Are you sure your students are not bored? What are good ways to engage them, to get them excited about human-computer interaction? We probably all agree recording your lecture does not solve the problem. But what are better ways of teaching a variety of skills in HCI?

Upfront – we do not have the answers, but many of us have tried out tools, have ideas and experiences. Hence we do this online event – to share experiences and to learn more.

COVID-19 is the trigger point for widescale online teaching – but it may also be the start of widescale bad online courses.

What strategies do we as HCI community have to make teaching and learning enjoyable – even if we cannot teach face to face.

We are bringing together HCI educators and authors with a variety of backgrounds and expertise to discuss this timely topic, and brainstorm ways to do good teaching with the tools and technologies available.

Each panelist will start with a statement about the experience (max. 120 Seconds) and then we move into an open panel discussion. We plan to record the session.
