Abstract

The importance of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) education for software professionals should be evident and well understood, when designing computing programs, at all levels. Unfortunately there is a lack of HCI courses in Peruvian computing programs. Changing curricula is often difficult and involves a long bureaucratic process. However, making small changes in courses' approach and emphasis only requires good will from the professors. The current paper presents a proposal to introduce HCI topics and/or courses in the Informatics Engineering curricula at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, based on the Chilean educational experience at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso.
