Call for Course Proposals

India HCI 2022 invites proposals to conduct courses aligned with the theme of this year’s conference: “Appropriate Design” and is a great way to introduce new audiences to specific topics in HCI and potentially excite more people about HCI research.

Quick Facts

The organisers encourage courses aligned with the theme of this edition of the conference. However, other themes of interest to the HCI community are welcome as well.

Courses are usually delivered in a lecture mode, with optional hands-on components, where the instructor(s) introduce the course materials and go reasonably deep into the subject. The audience is not expected to have a background on the subject. The course is intended to motivate the audience to take an interest in the subject matter and study the subject in-depth and start conducting research in the area. Courses might cover areas including research methods, design methods, evaluation methods, etc.
