Applications are open for the study-abroad seminar: “Experience Research: Communication Technologies and Development in Southern Ghana.” If you’ve ever wondered whether information and communication technologies (ICTs) are really changing lives in African countries, this is an opportunity to find out for yourself. Design and carry out a research project to answer questions you have about the role of ICTs in socio-economic development. You do not need to have research experience, and we welcome both graduate and undergraduate students.
The program will be 4 weeks long and takes place from August 26 – September 25, 2016. The course may satisfy research methods or international development requirements for some departments. Currently at the University of Washington it satisfies the research methods requirement for Informatics students (INFO 470) and qualifies as an elective for the International Development Certificate Program (IDCP). We are happy to work with you and your advisor to determine if the program could satisfy requirements for other courses.
Application Deadline is February 29, 2016.
