iSchoolers in the News
Students in Dave Stearns’ INFO 200 class showed off their final projects at an event at Mary Gates Hall recently. For their final projects, students work together in small teams to solve information problems. Many of the projects are concepts for websites or apps, while some are working prototypes of the students’ ideas.
Lecturer Annie Searle sees a lot of risks from the incoming Trump administration, particularly to the most disenfranchised and most-often profiled people in society. She wrote about it in her latest column for The Risk Universe.
Five iSchool instructors are among the nominees for UW teaching awards. They include Lecturers Bob Larson and Joel Smith, Assistant Professor Jason Yip, and Ph.D. students Ivette Bayo Urban and Beth Patin. The winners will be announced in spring.
Associate Professor Jacob Wobbrock and the startup he co-founded, AnswerDash, were featured in The Huffington Post. Wobbrock talked about his experiences starting a company out of research at the iSchool.
