Abstract

In this position paper we discuss the motivations for our research in HCI education and practice. Our findings support the case for a living curriculum, sensitive and responsive to the contrasting cultures and cognitive styles of educators, professionals and students. Our data reflects a predominance of analytic over intuitive styles in HCI educators, which has implications for curriculum development and delivery.
