We are currently developing a study abroad course in Kenya (for the University of Maryland, College Park) that will focus on the intersections of technology, creativity, and social responsibility. Specifically, we will be bringing undergraduate students to Nairobi for a winter-term course to explore ways in which non-profit organizations and companies have been creating mobile platforms to democratize information and increase
transparency. An integral component of this course will be for students to engage one-on-one with developers, journalists, artists, educators and entrepreneurs. Students will learn what it actually means to get socially engaged platforms off the ground.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
