Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM
This research group will be facilitated by Asst. Prof. Robin Mays (HCDE Alumni) with Asst Prof Bas Linjse (Radboud University, Netherlands) and supported by Prof Mark Haselkorn (HCDE). It is part of a three-year research grant from the National Science Foundation’s program on Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM. The grant research project is aimed at aligning information technology development with the socio-ethical humanitarian culture.
This DRG will focus on compiling and analyzing literature on relevant ICT development processes (including architecture, design and engineering activities) that may contribute to or hinder socio-ethical system behavior within the humanitarian domain. Students will be provided a brief orientation into ongoing humanitarian and technology topics and then participate in a) the refining of the group’s research activities in alignment with our research questions, b) conducting corpus compilation, and c) the analysis and critique of the corpus. This group will extend across two quarters and students are encouraged to participate in both quarters.
This course is especially good for those who might have interest in complex systems; mission/value/purpose-driven design of ICT; or in developing and designing technology within public service or non-profit domains.
