CHI2001UTM México1 Welcome to “Adding Human Computer Interaction Studies into the Informatics and Computing Engineering Bachelor Degrees in Latin America”
CHI2001UTM México2 CHI México Adding HCI into the BScs in Lat Am Mario A Moreno Rocha UTM (México) email@example.com “Sleepless in Seattle”

CHI2001UTM México4 The problem HCI studies lag behind in computing syllabus (not really found in BSc syllabus) HCI is a necessity How can HCI have a more active role in the BSc syllabus in Latin America?How can HCI have a more active role in the BSc syllabus in Latin America?
CHI2001UTM México5 Outline Define problemDefine problem Goals expectedGoals expected Earlier workEarlier work My experienceMy experience ConclusionsConclusions Q&AQ&A
CHI2001UTM México6 Relevance Because of the academic formation of new researchers, practitioners, designers and engineers alike, in HCI in Latin America It takes time and resources Education is the key.Education is the key.
CHI2001UTM México7 The UTM Universidad Tecnológica de la Mixteca Huajuapan de León, Oaxaca 120 full time lecturers researchers Computing and Electronics BScs Computing MSc and PhD Research, higher education, development.
CHI2001UTM México8 On professional practice Uneven evolution of code development with the GUI expected side of it The mistaken "friendly software" Usability notions barely applied.
CHI2001UTM México9 HCI on BSc syllabus Absence of HCI studies in BSc degrees HCI only found in specialised, graduate studies.HCI only found in specialised, graduate studies.
CHI2001UTM México10 Goals expected To foster communication among researchers To raise awareness in the topic To learn from my experience at the UTM with the Study Groups.To learn from my experience at the UTM with the Study Groups.
CHI2001UTM México11 Earlier work ACM SIGCHI Curricula A definitive guide for considering the addition of HCI studies into an university level syllabus http://www.acm.org/sigchi/cdg/
CHI2001UTM México12 SIGCHI Curricula It is a resource for anyone wishing to put together either a single course or a program in human- computer interaction.It is a resource for anyone wishing to put together either a single course or a program in human- computer interaction.
CHI2001UTM México13 Why didn’t I use it? I needed too much resources which I didn’t have (time, teachers, bibliography) For an immediate effort, the objective was, back then, to raise interest.For an immediate effort, the objective was, back then, to raise interest.
CHI2001UTM México14 What I did The creation of the Study Group
CHI2001UTM México15 How I did it “Teaching Human Computer Interaction to Programmers” Dr Saul Greenberg, GroupLab, University of Calgary, Canada

CHI2001UTM México17 Study Group requirements Interés en el temaInterés en el tema Disposición de asistir, obtener, analizar, compartir y discutir los conceptos en cuestiónDisposición de asistir, obtener, analizar, compartir y discutir los conceptos en cuestión Por el contenido del tema, se requiere un buen nivel de conocimientos de inglésPor el contenido del tema, se requiere un buen nivel de conocimientos de inglés Tiempo para reunirnos Se considera miembro del grupo de estudios aquella persona que asista regularmente Anotarte.
CHI2001UTM México21 How it evolved Materials published on line Afterwards, self-organised by students Weekly meetings, workshop style Continued for an advanced level.
CHI2001UTM México22 Results Great interest Better development of GUIs by students involved in the Study Group on further studies Conducted usability testing for final software engineering projects.
CHI2001UTM México23 Goals achieved Actual consideration of HCI as part of the syllabus in computing and electronics BScs Creation of the SW Engineering Master degree and its HCI courses The new usability lab One thesis, more to come.
CHI2001UTM México24 Conclusions Education lag of HCI Its multiple consequences The possible ways in which this problem could be tackled My experience Goals achieved The actual consideration of HCI becoming part of syllabus.
CHI2001UTM México25 Reflections Not a complete, nor definitive work Create a precedent New ways to complete the syllabus in computing and informatics Efforts multiplied in México.
CHI2001UTM México26 Wish list Cooperación, cooperação: collaboration between us The new teachers Their formation Resources for this.Resources for this.
