Even with the chaos of multiplicity and fragmentation, the interdiscipline of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is becoming a household name in African academia, industries, and communities. We propose this workshop to foreground the future dimension of HCI education in Africa, in terms of subject matters, philosophies, methodologies, theories, principles, and curriculum. The workshop is meant to be an expanded Baraza and/or a meeting point where pathways for living curriculums and pedagogies are identified and discussed. We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners doing HCI work in Africa and for African communities to reflect on the experiences of adopting (and translating) HCI methods and procedures, leading to the possibilities for the transfer of expertise and knowledge that could widen the pedagogical practices of HCI in Africa.
