Virtual IDC 2020 workshop on June 17th (= new date)

Call for Participation
Despite the Child-Computer Interaction (CCI) community’s rapid growth in the past two decades, there has traditionally been less focus on developing a curriculum to teach CCI to students. This entails a risk for a gap between the accumulation of knowledge and the transfer of this knowledge to new generations of researchers and designers. Building on previous workshops at IDC 2011 and 2014, the aim of this virtual IDC 2020 workshop on June 17th is to gauge the current state of teaching CCI to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students.
We invite people from different disciplines with an interest in teaching CCI or closely related subjects to submit a position paper via email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by April 13th outlining the following:
1. Short bio with focus on teaching experience, if any (ca. 150 words)
2. Description of teaching practices, experiences and/or ideas (1 to 2 pages), for instance:

  *   Course topics and learning goals
  *   Student assignments
  *   Didactic principles
  *   List with key readings
  *   Ethical challenges related to teaching
  *   Assessment practices
  *   Novel teaching ideas

Of special interest are ideas about aligning core topics with learning goals, relevant theories, good assignments, and didactic principles. During the workshop, we will first map out current practices, experiences and ideas for the future and, afterwards, develop a blueprint for a CCI curriculum that can be taught anywhere in the world.
Please direct any questions to Maarten Van Mechelen ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>)

Hope to meet you virtually this June!
Maarten Van Mechelen, Shuli Gilutz, Juan Pablo Hourcade, Gökçe Elif Baykal, Mathieu Gielen, Greg Walsh, Janet Read and Ole Sejer Iversen
