Subject: [cs-ugrads] Seminar announcement: Change
In preparation for the spring quarter I wanted to invite you all to register for the one credit Change Seminar (CSE590C1, SLN:12542) on Thursdays at noon in the Paul Allen Center (Room 203).
Change is a group of faculty, students, and staff at the UW who are exploring the role of information and communication technologies (ICT) in improving the lives of underserved populations, particularly in the developing world. We are cover topics such as global health, education, microfinance, agricultural development, and general communication, and look at how technology can be used to improve each of these areas.
This quarter we will be alternating between talks by invited speakers and group discussions. Those who sign up for credit may be asked to participate in leading one of the discussions (this requires very little work and can be done in groups). We are in the process of scheduling speakers, so stay tuned to our calendar, Twitter, or mailing list for more information.
Please consider enrolling. If you are unable to enroll, feel free to come to any of the meetings you are interested in attending! The seminar is available for all UW students and the content is designed to be widely accessible. We encourage students from all departments to enroll/attend if interested.
Please forward this message to the relevant mailing lists, and we hope to see you on Thursday March 29th at noon in Room 203 of the Paul Allen Center.
