Curriculum Vitae

Gabri Heinrichs (1977)

Teaching media design since 2005, with a focus on interaction/play/data/speculative design. Especially interested in curriculum development, assessment and evaluation, and quality assurance in higher (vocational) education. My academic focus is on philosophy of science, (social) epistemology, and instrument development. Currently I’m researching domain-specific epistemic beliefs in the context of media design internships.

After hours:

In my free time, I like to exercise (swimming/biking/calisthenics), sing and play guitar, read contemporary English literature, drink AeroPress coffee and eat vegetarian food, and spend lots of time with family and friends – in nature, preferably. I’m a card-carrying social media recluse, drive around my family of four in shared cars only, avoid air travel because it’s killing our planet (yet I remain an aviation geek), and I recently ditched my smartphone for a Nokia 3310 dumbphone. Dilige et quod vis fac.
