Since the first attempt at defining an HCI Curriculum (Hewett 1992) there have been many articles and workshops on HCI Education. Hewett presented a variety of curricula to be adopted in the different education contexts of the time; mainly in the fields of Computer Science, Psychology and Information and Management Science, with an emphasis on usability modelling and evaluations. In the 20 years since Hewett HCI has exploded: the desktop no long predominates, commercial computing is no the main context of operation. Instead, interaction is everywhere, touch interfaces predominate and social and entertainment markets are at least as important as the commercial arena for HCI researchers and practitioners. Of course these developments have posed challenges to teachers of HCI, as we strive to educate the next generation of HCI researchers and practitioners. There has also been a consequent explosion of HCI courses and programmers. Whereas in Hewett’s time HCI was taught in a limited range of institutions and departments, it is now established as a core discipline in Computer Science and Psychology, and become included in other fields, such as sociology, new media, design and fine art. Each of these areas has their own take on HCI education.
