Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Education and research in developing countries:

Under this theme, we study how to effectively teach HCI in the Uganda and or Africa context, and carry out research on local HCI problems.

This is motivated by the fact that HCI education and practice in most developing countries including Uganda is still based on the experiences and practices of developed countries despite the fact that HCI needs in developed countries are different from those of developed countries due to several differences such as level of Literacy (general and technology, level of ICT and Internet development, level of institutionalization of HCI and level of Socio-economic Development. Additionally, research on local HCI problems is still limited due to limited human resource.
