Title Re-Embodiment : new strategies for teaching Embodied Interaction
Author Kozel, Susan
Date 2017
English abstract
The paper considers the role of the body and embodiment in design education. It offers a “re-do” of the Embodied Interaction course on the Interaction Design Master’s at Malmö University. This conceptual and pedagogic redo coincides with the increasing relevance of this field which now can be seen to include physical computing, wearables, haptics, and networked devices for transmitting bodily data. Three conceptual shifts are emphasised: embodiment redefined as materiality; critical engagement with contemporary politics and economics; methodological awareness and experimentation. This is not an abandonment of previous approaches, but a revision to coincide with developments in practice and scholarship, both within interaction design and in relevant related disciplines. It also reflects current cultural and political educational climate thereby emphasizing a porosity of education, a flow-through between the university and the world outside its walls.
