Hand-drawn sketching is a practice as old as our ancestors. From cave painting to picture-books, we have explored the world with our visual senses. Sketching in Human-Computer Interaction is a valuable tool it can be used to document, ideate, and describe concepts between researcher, user, or client.
Introductory CHI 2021 course attendees will leave the course with the confidence to engage actively with sketching on an everyday basis in their research practice. It will also enable those already in possession of sketching skills the confidence to take their work to the next level. Drawing from expertise gained by working in both academia and industry, the instructors will lead course attendees on a journey through practical applications of sketching in HCI, from subjective sketching to participant engagement and publishing, using hands-on tasks and group activities.
