CHI2016 Workshop to promote visual literacy as a first-class competency in HCI research and practice.


Visual materials are equally as relevant to design outcomes, as they are to their use in the analytic design processes. 


1.     What are the dimensions of visual literacy in HCI?

2.     How do visual metaphors and visual artifacts influence the way we think about HCI research and practice?

3.     How do HCI researchers and practitioners use visual literacy to conveying knowledge, for conceptualization, for engagement, or as support for argumentation?

4.     How is visual literacy efficacy evaluated, sustained, and fostered?

5.     Does current and future technology require new ways to comprehend, create, communicate and teach about visual literacy in HCI?

 

 

The goal of this workshop is to develop ideas about and expand a research agenda for visual literacy in HCI.

- to comprehend, create, and think visually - 

 in HCI from the perspectives of researchers and practitioners. We invite the CHI community to consider the following questions:

 



ENGAGE

Engage other HCI researchers in the transformative dimensions of visual literacy with respect to modern digital technology.

ASSESS

Assess the relevance and pervasive nature of visual artifacts in and as a consequence of HCI design.

PROMOTE

Promote visual literacy as a first-class competency in HCI research and practice.
