Teaching universaldesign

  1. 1. Teaching  Universal  Design  to   Computer  Science  Students Reflec:ons  from  a  first  course   instanceMonday, February 27, 12
  2. 2. Excluding  vs.  Non-­‐excluding  DesignMonday, February 27, 12
  3. 3. Non-­‐excluding  Design • The  concept  and  principles • Not  just  interfaces  and  control • ADtude/understanding • Many  prac:cal  examplesMonday, February 27, 12
  4. 4. Computer  Science  Students • Basic  HCI  knowledge  as  a  requirement • Advanced  Master  Level   – 10  credits  ≈  7-­‐8  weeks   • Mul:-­‐Cultural  GroupMonday, February 27, 12
  5. 5. Good  and  Bad • “Aha”-­‐moments  are  important – Driving  a  wheel  chair  in  various  environments • Focus  on  prac:cal  situa:ons • Reflec:ons  focused  on: – What  problems  are  there? – Why  are  they  there? – And  how  can  they  be  removed? • Design  assignments • Evalua:on  projectMonday, February 27, 12
  6. 6. Good  and  Bad • Maybe  too  wide? –  ICF  is  difficult  for  students  to  access • No  covering  literature – Book  is  under  way… • Much  of  accessibility  is   focused  on  narrow applica:ons – WWW – GUIMonday, February 27, 12
  7. 7. Computer  Scien:sts? • Is  this  for  CS  students?   • Focus  on  computer  science  issues? – What  is  a  computer  science  problem  in  this  field? – User  interac:on  problems/ADtudesMonday, February 27, 12
  8. 8. What  happened? • Most  students  (8/10)  reported  a  big   perspec:ve  change  as  a  result  of  the  course • Largely  increased  awareness – General – Interna:onal • Master  Theses  on  topics – Tools  for  visually  impaired   people – Tools  for  demen:aMonday, February 27, 12
