Abstract [en]

This paper presents ideas that evolved during a project development course for teachers at Uppsala University. The aim of the study was to investigate eventual interest among teachers at the IT department to include ethnography in their teaching. Throughout the study a creative discussion took off. Due to these discussions the purpose of the initial study shifted and resulted in a concrete suggestion of a teaching method that uses ethnographical elements as tools to increase student activity and achievements of goals in HCI education. The method has potential to increase students’ and teachers’ awareness and knowledge of each student as a cultural being, through directed discussions that are linked to both course goals and cultural features. Thereby they can get insights of where the student as an individual is best suited within HCI as a diverse field. However; there are also pitfalls that need to be identified and discussed.
