Greetings! 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 environment. *Bios: *This paper will be presented jointly by Naveena Karusala <https://nkarusala.wixsite.com/home/about> and Neha Kumar <http://www.nehakumar.org/>. Naveena is a first-year Computer Science PhD student at UW. She worked on this paper during her undergrad at Georgia Tech, where she was advised by Neha -- assistant professor doing research at the intersection of human-centered computing and global development (read HCI4D). The paper they will present is joint work with Aditya Vishwanath <http://adityavishwanath.me/> (joint lead author), Arkadeep Kumar, and Aman Mangal, all incredible Georgia Tech students.
