Community-Centered, Project-Based ICT4D Education in the Field

Abstract : The growing demand for user-centered, sustainable, collaborative and ecosystem-aware ICT4D programs and projects brings requirements for education of a new generation ICT4D professionals. This paper presents a post-graduate field-based course in ICT4D that teaches how to co-create and deploy community-centered ICT services. The course has been jointly organized and deployed by Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) for a mixed group of computer science, information science and artificial intelligence students from VU and UNIMAS. The course design, experiences, outcomes and evaluation are presented in this paper.
