INSC 542 Social Informatics

(3) Social consequences of information and communication technologies (ICT) at micro (e.g., personal level), meso (e.g., organizational level) and at macro level (e.g., information society studies), and applications of ICT for businesses, government, and society are covered by the umbrella term "social informatics." It is a highly multi-disciplinary area worth exploring, since it will expose you to a range of contemporary global issues and phenomena shaped by ICT-mediated information.
