  1. The Anthropophagic Studio:  Towards a Critical Pedagogy for Interaction Design

    The Anthropophagic Studio: Towards a Critical Pedagogy for Interaction Design

    Abstract: The design studio is the standard approach for interaction design education in the Global North. Nevertheless, in the Global South, this approach is not directly applicable due to authoritarian educational systems founded on colonialist ideologies. This research reports on an attempt to appropriate the design studio and fundamental interaction design concepts in Brazil. Following the anthropophagy tradition of hybridization, the foreign concepts […] - Jul 25, 2020
  2. Reflective Practice in software development studios: findings from an ethnographic study

    Reflective Practice in software development studios: findings from an ethnographic study

    Abstract: Over the last two decades, software educators have adopted new approaches, techniques, and tools for practical learning. Previous research has found that studio-based learning is suitable for learning the practical aspects of software engineering. This research strand recognizes reflective practice as a characteristic feature of software development studios. However, they did not show how […] - May 19, 2020

    Trajectory and traits of devigners: a qualitative study about transdisciplinarity in a software studio

    Abstract: Contemporary software engineering requires multidisciplinary teams, organized in different roles to collaborate. Among the roles, two are consolidating as complementary opposites: the developer and the designer. These roles require different backgrounds and skills, which makes the developer-designer collaboration quite difficult sometimes. Intending to bridge the gap between these two roles, some students are pursuing […] - May 19, 2020

    Nowadays, the technology permeates nearly every aspect of our lives then it is usual to expect that the number, size, complexity, and application domains of developed software will continue to grow, as well as the problems with cost, timelines and quality of software products development. This scenario demands even more skilled software developers that blend […] - Mar 27, 2020
  5. Classroom-to-Studio Transformation

    Classroom-to-Studio Transformation

    I like to teach through developing projects as done in design studios. Most of the times, students need to adapt regular classrooms to work like design studios. I encourage them to appropriate the classroom space in any way that is  better to support their creative activities. Along the years, we learnt together many ways to […] - Nov 1, 2018
  6. Barriers to design studio pedagogy

    Barriers to design studio pedagogy

    Barriers to design studio pedagogy (2017) was a short talk given at PUCPR teaching seminar. The main barriers for conducting the studio pedagogy in the Digital Design undergraduate course were: the fragmentation of the course in isolated topics, the lack of autonomy of students, the academic requirements of the final work and the divergence of […] - Apr 27, 2017
