Whilst studying Human-Computer Interaction, students and work-place learners rarely encounter sketching, yet such practice has been shown to improve cognitive processes and increase retention of information. Additionally, it is a valuable method of ideation and communication for both subjective and group-based projects. We propose further integration of sketching practice within HCI and computer science curricula, both to preserve this valuable skill for use in research and industry, and to widen the perspectives of those working with subjects often seen as grounded in code or logic. SketCHI #3 will bring together those interested in enhancing student's and colleagues experience in a hands-on meeting of minds and sketching, with the aim to share best practice and knowledge for those interested in expanding our views on education in the field, and to co-create a Sketching in HCI education plan with a body of knowledge.
