Call for Workshop Papers (DIS 2017) Pedagogy & Physicalization: Designing
Learning Activities around Physical Data Representations
Pedagogy & Physicalization: Designing Learning Activities around Physical
This workshop will be held as part of the DIS 2017 conference
June 10-14, Edinburgh, UK
Call for Participation
In an age where data and their various representations proliferates many
aspects of our professional and private lives, a new form of awareness and
visual literacy is required that enables people to decipher, interpret,
critically discuss and actively engage in activities around this public
and/or personal data and its (visual) representations. Previous case
studies have found Physicalization to be a productive way to introduce
people of different ages, and with different backgrounds, to activities
around data collection, processing, and representation.
This full-day workshop will provide a rich hands-on introduction to and
reflection on questions around the pedagogy of Physicalization. We will
explore current research questions, as well as approaches to engaging
people into designing physical data representations, while critically
reflecting on the role these choices play in a learning environment.
The aim of this workshop is to: (1) discuss different learning scenarios in
which Physicalization activities can be beneficial, (2) explore different
approaches on how to introduce Physicalization activities to different
learning audiences, and (3) to build a community of researchers and
practitioners interested in the pedagogical aspects of Physicalization.
We invite designers, educators, researchers and practitioners from all
backgrounds to participate in our workshop, which will explore
Physicalization as an activity to encourage active learning. Participants
are invited to submit a 2-4 page position paper in ACM CHI Extended
Abstract Format to trevor.hogan at cit.ie by 27 April 2017. Toptics can
include, but are not limited to, participants’ research or practical
experience with applying Physicalization in educational and/or workshop
scenarios from a teaching and/or methodological point of view.
Submissions will be peer reviewed by an interdisciplinary review-committee.
At least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the
Paper Submission deadline: 27 April 2017
