Workshop: Teaching & Learning Disruptive New Mediums – AR, VR, AI, and IoT

February 4, 2017 1:15 PM - 4:15 PM

This workshop offers insights, case studies, and techniques for educators and students facing the disruptive new mediums of this era. After years of percolation, AR/VR, Artificial Intelligence and IoT are a major force in the market, gaining adoption and experiencing major investments. Interaction Designers have an essential role in shaping how these disruptive technologies play a role in life and business. But because of the radical new kinds of interactions and technologies, learning and producing true innovations for these new mediums is challenging.

How can educators support the next generation of designers when the faculty are learning themselves? How do we get past the hype and dig into the deeper issues of these radical new mediums.  What lessons can we take from previous disruptions? What are the most appropriate learning outcomes of these courses? And how do we critique designs and evaluate educational success?
