Prof. Christine Goutrié

Prof. Goutrié is a professor at the Weissensee School of Art and Design in Berlin since 2013 and teaches digital media in the foundation year for students of all degree programs. With her background in computer science, HCI, and interaction design she teaches with great enthusiasm first year students the basic concepts of digital media and encourages them to leave behind all their fears and skepticism towards coding. Her approach to establish inclusive spaces for all students with different experiences and backgrounds always integrates the political and socio-cultural dimension into her teaching of digital and online media. 2000 she became a professor at the University of Magdeburg-Stendal and established the new field of interaction design there. She developed and supervised several design programs, e.g. an online master’s program Cross Media which integrates interaction design, management and journalism as the core fields and uses a wide variety of online teaching methods. 2005/06 she was a guest professor at the UC Berkeley, USA at the Center of Information Technology in the Interest of Society and worked at the Berkeley Design Institute as well as at the computer science department. She was part of the interdisciplinary team of computer scientists and artists of the tele-immersion lab of Ruzena Bajcsi.
