Advancing HCI Education in Egypt: Exploring Lived Cultural Heritage Through Design

Hilali network logo

We present the Hilali Network, a transnational collaboration which transcends geographic and conceptual borders to merge current reform in Egyptian higher education and local community-led digital preservation and protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage. The project aims at developing an Egyptian HCI living curriculum, in the first instance with a focus on intangible cultural heritage, in partnership with established Higher Education and HCI institutes in UK. An outline for the project activities is described. Further, a call for participation in the project advisory group is presented to the wider HCI community. Advancing HCI Education in Egypt: Exploring Lived Cultural Heritage Through Design
