Organised by the British Human-Computer-Interaction Group (a specialist group of the British Computer Society) in co-operation with LTSN-ICS

Each spring the British HCI Group hosts a two-day workshop to consider topical issues in HCI Education. This is then followed by a single day workshop at the annual British HCI Conference in September to progress specific issues and identify emerging issues. In 2003 the spring workshop was held in Edinburgh and the follow-up at HCI2003 in Bath

The 7th HCI Educators' Workshop takes place in Preston at the University of Central Lancashire on 1st and 2nd April 2004 with a follow-up workshop at HCI2004 in Leeds

The Spring workshop aims to
disseminate, consolidate and build on the findings of the HCI2003 workshop (and other related international workshops) on reusable learning objects (RLOs) in HCI education
determine the extent to which traditional HCI teaching remains relevant to Artists/ Designers/ Creative Technologists.

Participants will
cross-fertilise issues and key topics of importance to HCI educators and practitioners
share their experiences with RLOs and other elements of good HCI education and practice
work together to produce or extend RLOs to benefit the HCI community enabling greater collaboration to occur

All delegates will receive a set of workshop proceedings, which as in previous years, will be published with an ISBN by LTSN-ICS. We plan to disseminate the outcomes from the workshop in external publications. The medium of the workshop will be a mixture of papers, posters and demonstrations together with a workshop element for collaboration, discussion and practical activities to take place. There will be time to relax and network; a full and varied social programme is planned for the Thursday evening.

Please feel free to contact the workshop chairs; Barbara McManus and Janet Read if you have any queries, questions or suggestions.

Workshop Outcomes

By participating in the workshop, delegates will:
develop a greater awareness of key topics issues facing HCI educators and trainers;
exchange best practice with colleagues from other institutions;
identify new ideas to inform their own teaching practice thereby enhancing the learning of their students.
