A Basic Misunderstanding of Multiculturalism in the Helping Professions References Introduction In my multicultural competencies course for graduate students, I used to start the course by asking my students a simple question. As a multiculturally competent supervisor, I can usually tease out the subtle biases and value systems of other professionals and link my observations to supervision. We discuss these issues and understand the larger issues premising the need for competencies. So for we helping professionals, there is a difference between a helping professional who is culturally competent and one who is not.
Activities undertaken within the auspices of the lab include practice, research activities and information dissemination. The DSD DESIS Lab meets monthly to interrogate research, projects, methods and products that impact on the intersection and interplay between design, society and development in our specific context.
We draw on critical political economy, social sciences, appropriate technology development, participatory and human-centered design, and other design approaches in our practice and research.
What role can design play in addressing social, cultural and environmental issues through technology and innovation? How can designers help to make sense of an increasingly complex and interconnected world?
How should designers transform the way they think and do now — and in the future, in order to address issues like social injustice? How can design act as a catalyst for introducing technology, where appropriate, to better the lives of people? How could the impact of design be assessed and evaluated, and how could this feed into the design process and design education?
The key differentiator in this initiative is the focus on a human-centered approach to design, development and creative production. The use of information technology to facilitate better interaction amongst social actors for knowledge sharing, social change and research.
Developing theory, design methodologies and evaluation methodologies for design interventions aimed at positive social change.Microsoft Research is funding a new academic program, the Microsoft Research Dissertation Grant, offering selected doctoral students doing computing research at U.S.
