The Tech4Good Lab is organizing reading groups for exploring social computing, the intersection of computation and social interaction. With the proliferation of internet-enabled devices, computation has gradually shifted from developing tools for individuals to creating social, economic, and political systems. Social computing is incredibly interdisciplinary, using methods ranging from design and user studies to data mining and mathematical proofs. All students regardless of major and year are encouraged to join!
We know you're busy, so reading groups are designed to be extremely light. Groups meet one-hour a week for four weeks. That's it! You are only committing to read and summarize a single paper during that time. In return you get to:
- Stretch your imagination by developing a big picture view of how computation is applied to problems in society
- Build relationships with motivated peers that share common passions
- Gain intuition and experience in research, potentially opening paths to joining a lab
There will be several themes that you can choose between. Check out the Collectively webpage for information on the upcoming themes and RSVP for the reading group formation meeting this Thursday, November 8 @ 6:30 pm in E2-506.
We look forward to exploring with you.

Want to design your own section? Want to get credit for pursuing your passion? Want to be part of a peer-to-peer education model that focuses on sustainability and social justice? Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) is accepting applications for facilitators!
Facilitators go through a 5 unit training class in the winter quarter in which they design and plan their syllabus, lesson plans, and logistics of their classes. Come Spring, the facilitators lead students enrolled in these 2 or 5 unit classes in an engaging classroom setting that will focus on any number of environmental and social justice concerns that we face today. All sustainability topics are welcome, just refer to the Blueprint for Sustainable Campus. It is up to you and your passions to decide which topic to cover and design your own Action Research Team (ART)! Don't pass up this awesome opportunity to pursue your passion, spread awareness about your cause, embody the role of a leader/mentor, take action, create a community, and have fun! We are open to all majors!
We are having an info session with some of our past facilitators to give more insight into what this opportunity is like! We will have snacks, be answering your questions, and can help you out with your application as well. This will be happening on Monday, November 5th, from 2:30-3: 30 pm in the Cowell Conference Room 231.
We encourage you to turn in your application ASAP, the deadline is only a couple weeks away!
The final deadline for applications is November 16th before 11:59 PM.
You can find the application here.Check out eslp-enviroslug.org to learn more about ESLP, check out the ARTs that students facilitated last Spring, download the application, and then email the completed form to email@example.com. Feel free to email us with any questions!
