Please join us for the Change Seminar starting next week on *Tuesday
10/3/2017 in HUB 214 at 12-1 pm*. Change is an association of researchers
broadly interested in technology as applied to global development, poverty
alleviation, and social justice.

This semester we will begin an exciting cross-campus collaboration
involving faculty and students from TASCHA (Technology and Social Change)
at the iSchool, Global WACh and I-TECH (International Training and
Education Center for Health) at the Department of Global Health, the UW
School of Nursing, and ICTD (Information and Communication Technologies for
Development) at CSE. We hope that the presence of students and faculty from
each of these groups will foster increased collaboration, fruitful
discussion, and awareness of related projects and shared interests between
groups. Other student and faculty volunteers are welcome to join our
organizing team; if interested, please reply to this email.

*Time: Tuesdays at 12-1 pm*
*Location:* The seminar will be held in *HUB 214* unless otherwise
announced. On 10/24 and 11/28 it will be held in the large conference room
in the Harris Hydraulics building.


This week, Naveena Karusala and Neha Kumar will be presenting their CSCW
2018 paper titled *Care as a Resource for Underserved Learning Environments*

*Who: *Naveena Karusala (UW) & Neha Kumar (Georgia Tech)
*What:* Care as a Resource for Underserved Learning Environments
*When:* Tuesday Oct 3
*Where:* 12pm in CSE 203

*Abstract: *We present results from an ethnographic inquiry of
technology-based learning at an after-school learning center in Mumbai
(India) that caters to students from neighboring slum communities. We
conducted participant observation for 120 hours and 58 semi-structured
interviews with different stakeholders (including teachers, staff, parents,
and students) at the center over nine weeks from December 2015 to July
2016. Taking an assets-based approach in an underserved context, we uncover
the role of care as a resource and present the rich and varied caring
behaviors enacted in this sociotechnical system.We then discuss how care
effects a greater sense of ownership, interdependency, and community.
Examining the role of aligning values in motivating caring behavior, we
conclude with recommendations for supporting, leveraging, and extending
care via technology design in an underserved, technology-enhanced learning

*Bios: *This paper will be presented jointly by Naveena Karusala
