INFO 5915 - Remaking the City


     


Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading (no audit).

Enrollment limited to: Cornell Tech students. Offered in New York City at Cornell Tech.

T. Parikh.

This workshop-based service learning course will engage students in participatory design projects that use technology to support community-based organizations in urban contexts. The engagement will be structured as team-based internships, where students will be required to commit up to 5 hours per week to support the organization in its technology needs. We will reflect on these experiences, and connect them to broader themes impacting cities and the civic organizations within them – including migration, race, gender and disability. Students will learn and apply user-centered and participatory design methodologies; theoretical frameworks that help us understand the modern city; the unique technology challenges facing small community-based and civic organizations.
