Contribution by Alan Dix on Eye-Contact in remote communication/video recordings:
Is your online course really better than a book? Are you sure your students are not bored? What are good ways to engage them, to get them excited about human-computer interaction? We probably all agree recording your lecture does not solve the problem. But what are better ways of teaching a variety of skills in HCI?
Upfront – we do not have the answers, but many of us have tried out tools, have ideas and experiences. Hence we do this online event – to share experiences and to learn more.
COVID-19 is the trigger point for widescale online teaching – but it may also be the start of widescale bad online courses.
What strategies do we as HCI community have to make teaching and learning enjoyable – even if we cannot teach face to face.
We are bringing together HCI educators and authors with a variety of backgrounds and expertise to discuss this timely topic, and brainstorm ways to do good teaching with the tools and technologies available.
Each panelist will start with a statement about the experience (max. 120 Seconds) and then we move into an open panel discussion. We plan to record the session.
