Chi briding the relevance gap

336 views

Published on

In a booming field with its origins in academia, why do Human Computer Interaction (HCI, UX) practitioners and academics not engage? @gilescolborne's talk from CHI 2019 tries to answer that question, discusses why previous attempts have failed, and shows how we can learn from other people's successes.

 they want you to fix it.

  26. 26. @gilescolborne My take home: You can open up spaces for new kinds of learning and sharing without needing to change whole systems. This isn’t about changing structures,
 it’s about ways of being, mindset. It isn’t about who’s right, it’s about how we can learn together. I take this with me. Always. Rae Tooth, CEO, Villiers Park
  27. 27. @gilescolborne How could we create a shared space for academics and practitioners to work together? • What important goals do we share? • What value are we looking for? • How do we create a shared space and embrace vulnerability? • What do we have to let go of? • What’s the simplest way we can make this happen? How do we move from prototyping this, to delivering it at scale? • What can we learn from familiar models?
