A road map for service-learning partnerships between information science and nonprofit organizations

While service-learning is a well-known educational method for integrating learning experiences with community service, it is only now beginning to emerge in computer and information sciences (CIS). Offering a truly global perspective, this book introduces for the first time an essential framework for service learning in CIS, addressing both the challenges and opportunities of this approach for all stakeholders involved-faculty, students, and community nonprofit organizations (NPOs), both domestic and abroad.

Service-Learning in the Computer and Information Sciences outlines numerous examples of successful programs from around the world, presenting practical working models for implementing joint projects between NPOs and academia. It provides faculty members with vital insight into how to coordinate projects with a community partner, arms students with real-world problem-solving skills specific to issues faced by NPOs, and gives NPOs the expertise to leverage information technology to improve the overall value of their services. This book:

  • Shows academics how to interact with local and global NPOs for mutually beneficial project partnerships
  • Helps IS students enhance their classroom experience through community service, preparing them for the workforce
  • Examines the range of available options for service learning in CIS, especially project-based or capstone courses
  • Includes case studies from technologically challenged regions
  • Helps NPOs become better users of technology in such areas as marketing, fundraising, and communications

In Philip Roth' s intimate intellectual encounters with an international and diverse cast of writers, they explore the importance of region, politics and history in their work and trace the imaginative path by which a writer' s highly individualized art is informed by the wider conditions of life.
With Primo Levi, Roth discusses the stubborn core of rationality that helped the Italian chemist-writer survive the demented laboratory of Auschwitz. With Milan Kundera, he analyzes the mix of politics and sexuality that made him the most subversive writer in communist Czechoslovakia. With Edna O' Brien, he explores the circumstances that have forced generations of Irish writers into exile. Elsewhere Roth offers appreciative portraits of two friends-- the writer Bernard Malamud and the painter Philip Guston-- at the end of their careers, and gives us a masterful assessment of the work of Saul Bellow. Intimate, charming, and crackling with ideas about the interplay between imagination and the writer' s historical situation, Shop Talk is a literary symposium of the highest level, presided over by America' s foremost novelist.
