------------------  CHI 2000 WORKSHOP CFP  -----------------

    A Compendium of Practical Techniques for HCI Instruction

                      Monday, 3 April 2000

                         Organized by
     Marian G. Williams, University of Massachusetts Lowell
     Andrew Sears, University of Maryland Baltimore County

If you teach HCI-related courses in industry, at conferences, or in
academia, this workshop is your chance to contribute to a collection
of practical, reproducible HCI instructional techniques.  A lot of
work has gone into defining what HCI students should learn from the
many disciplines that make up the field, but much less attention has
been paid to how to teach it.

This workshop will produce a compendium of how-to information for HCI
educators.  It is not the place to discuss theories, curricula,
one-of-a-kind projects, or the grand scheme of HCI education.  It is
the place to discuss concrete success stories that can be reproduced
by other instructors.

To be considered for participation, submit a position paper (5 pages
max.) describing a successful technique:

-- subject matter, and how it fits into the curriculum recommendations
-- pedagogical goals
-- materials and methods used
-- instructional setting (country, educational system, etc.)
-- assumptions about students' prior knowledge
-- how other instructors can reproduce the technique
-- evidence you will bring to demonstrate success with the technique
   (e.g., videotape of the technique in use, examples of studentsm
   work, data from feedback questionnaires, etc.).

The primary criterion for acceptance is demonstrable success with a
technique that can be used by other HCI instructors.  Accepted
participants will be invited to submit chapters to an anthology of
successful HCI teaching techniques.
