I'm very happy that I received a seed grant from the Community Informatics Initiative (CII) at the University of Illinois!
CII's most recent newsletter lists all the grant winners and their projects. The newsletter also includes items of interest to those of us doing Spanish community service learning:
- The "Community as Intellectual Space" conference in Chicago's Paseo Boricua,
- The third annual eChicago symposium, entitled "Cybernavigating our Cultures," and
- The project on Participatory GIS for Empowering Low-Resource Communities
In addition to the funding and time off from teaching, I am most excited about learning from the truly excellent people and projects within the CII and the Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences. The are a top-ranked program--with good reason. I know I will learn a lot from them and find much to emulate.
