Abstract

In the current work, we introduce Applab as a pedagogical
framework and a transdisciplinary design approach to innovate HCI education.
Students do not work for a client, but work together with urban stakeholders to
better frame the problem in order to deal with societal challenges. In this way,
Applab embraces design thinking as an approach to leverage a crossdisciplinary
collaboration between research, government, industry, and HCI and
design education. Results are described as well as lessons learnt. Consequently,
the elaborate Applab model is discussed. Interestingly, the corresponding
transdisciplinary design approach enabled a successful implementation of
Applab into HCI education. Students learnt a lot, as did the urban stakeholders.
The designed artefacts greatly leveraged their mind-shifting and meaningful
learning experiences.
