The discipline of human-computer interaction has become a subjecttaught across universities around the world, outside of the cultures where itoriginated. However, the intercultural implication of its assimilation into thesyllabus of courses offered by universities around the world remains under-researched. The purpose of this ongoing research project is to provide insightsfor these implications in terms of the student and teacher experience of HCI.How this subject is socially represented and valued across the differentuniversities studied is also a key question for us. A multiple case studyinvolving students and lecturers engaged in evaluation and design tasks in theUK, Denmark, Namibia, Mexico and China is described.
