We’re going to Hong Kong

Carmen and I will take a week off in November to jet over to Hong Kong for the International Conference on Interaction Design. We’re thrilled about the opportunity to present our paper, New Methods: Framing an Interaction Design Class to Play a Complementary Role in Core Curriculum to a global audience and begin to stimulate a conversation around the need for interaction design education in schools.

Personally, I’m really excited to see this great line-up of international speakers, too!

We’re Speaking at the EdLab

January 6th, 2011 by Katie Koch | No Comments | Filed in Design, Speaking

Carmen and I are so excited to be speaking at the EdLab at Columbia’s Teachers College next week. We’ll be sharing our experiences with Project: Interaction and our ideas for how design can play a role in any classroom.

Carmen Dukes and Katie Koch will share their ideas about the potential to use design in a successful high school environment as a complement to students’ core coursework. They will discuss their process of discovery and invention as it relates toProject: Interaction , an after school program they’ve created and taught that teaches high school students to use design to change their communities. Katie and Carmen will share lessons they’ve learned from their first class of design students and will lead a discussion around ways educators can incorporate design into their classes.

For more information and to RSVP, visit the EdLab Seminars site.
