Education is Changing
While educational technology has a long pedigree, the last few years have seen dramatic changes. These have included the rise and institutionalisation of MOOCs, and other web-based initiatives such as Kahn Academy and Peer-to-Peer University (P2PU). Classrooms have also been transformed with growing use of mobile devices and forms of flipped classroom; and educational progress and engagement has been increasingly measured leading to institutional and individual learning analytics.
This workshop seeks to understand the interaction of these issues with human–computer interaction in a number of ways:
- what HCI has to contribute to these educational changes in terms of the design of authoring and learning platforms, and the wider socio-political implications of increasingly metric-driven governance?
- how will these changes affect HCI education?
Together practice-based and theoretical approaches will help us build a clear understanding of the current state and future challenges for educational technology and HCI.
