Extractions: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Abstract This paper examines perceptions of three different communication channels (written, interpersonal, and e-mail) in a new organizational form, from six perspectives: social information processing, decision making, cost minimization, social presence, uncertainty reduction, and appraisal. In this study three functional groups within the Cancer Information Service (CIS) were examined: Project Directors (N=11), Outreach Coordinators (N=16), and Telephone Service Managers (N=17). The results indicated that there were few significant differences between these functional groupings. While there were clear differences between theoretical perspectives, the specific functional role differences related to them only marginally supported our hypotheses. This study suggested that refocusing on fundamental underlying processes may be necessary at this stage in the development of the literature on channel selection in organizations.

Extractions: COMMUNICATION? For an individual using a computer system, as Candace Sidner says in her paper in this volume, "interfaces are 'communication engines' to the functionality of software applications; interfaces are how we get our work done." Yet the word "interfaces" suggests a thin veneer (according to the dictionary, "a surface forming a common boundary"), too thin to provide the capabilities for communication and support that people should be getting from computer systems. Most members of the human-computer interface community take the "I" to refer instead to "interaction," but the ability to collaborate ("work with") and not just interact ("act on one another") is becoming increasingly important as people use the NII not just to get individual tasks done, but also to communicate and work with others. As explained in Chapter 2 , the NII's growth is extending civic life and community to include geographically dispersed individuals. It is thus important to expand the conventional conceptualization of interfaces by recognizing that they may involve more than one person and machine and that collaborative systems can either alleviate or exacerbate problems in interactions among individuals with different abilities. As explained by Terry Winograd in his position paper in this volume, the traditional idea of "interface" implies a focus on the person and the machine. In designing interfaces it is important to focus as well on the "interspace" that is inhabited by multiple people and machines in a complex web of interactions. The expanded view this interspace implies adds tobut does not replacethe conventional requirements of interfaces for facilitating communication between person and machine.

Chapter 1 an overview of the American Psychological Association and is a good way to introduce students to the organization. This is the oldest professional organization for psychology and one of the largest professional organizations in the world. The APA also is responsible for accrediting graduate and professional schools of psychology. They have a good deal of free information for students and faculty, which will be noted throughout this manual. http://www.psychologicalscience.org introduces students to the American Psychological Society. If students ask why there are two professional organizations for psychology, you discuss the split that happened in the 1980s because of the different needs of practitioners and researchers. You also might want to mention that many academic psychologists belong to both. The following websites are most useful for faculty. Each website will give you access to current research projects. You may choose to have your students participate in some of these experiments. Several of the sites will let your students work with psychology students at other community colleges, universities, and high schools.

I happen to think that it could be tasked to roam about in the space of pattern languages, for they, too, describe processes, and that's what the Forbus qualitative process theory, as implemented in my program, is all about. At the same time, there is a larger set of issues related to modeling. To me, crafting pattern languages is the same thing as modeling in just about any of the scientific or artistic senses. The larger issues are those associated with the fact (yup, fact!) that almost everything you try to model is a complex system, one that doesn't readily submit to models of the linear sort. Architectural systems (homes, etc) are, indeed, complex systems, complete with the feedback loops associated with the humans who create, use, and destroy them. Well, it's true, the home itself, is just a composition of static, lifeless (possibly once alive) objects. But, the home, as a system, which includes the entirety of its environment, is complex. So are social systems, which, by and large, uplift is all about.

App. 2: References TBD All through the 1960's I was heavily engaged in developing a system for the computer aided design of ships. Through my shipbuilder friends, I became familiar with their systems for production planning and control. The kernel of their operation was a very sophisticated system for activity planning and resource allocation. The planning department was very happy with this system, and believed it to be very satisfactory for parties concerned. My line manager friends told a different story. What really happened was that the managers did their planning on the back of an envelope or with a private computer program. Once they had an acceptable plan, they diddled the input so that the planning department happily produced a plan they could accept.

Extractions: Abstracts Aalto Nancy and Pietilä Irja (University of Tampere, Finland) Seeing with different eyes Many aspects of culture are primarily learned and taught implicitly through experience. One main goal in improving intercultural competence is to raise awareness of the fact that people perceive the world around them in different ways, and that they have learned to do so as part of their enculturation process. To be a competent intercultural communicator, one should ideally be able to shift perspectives and see things from another's point of view. In learning to do so, the influence of culture on one's own perspective becomes more evident. Experiential learning plays an integral role in intercultural education and training. Various simulations and exercises are used in order to give participants a rich experience through which they can analyze and share their reactions and feelings. This technique is especially useful for monocultural groups where it is sometimes more difficult to achieve a deeper sense of the influence of culture. In this workshop we will do an abbreviated version of the Martian Anthropology Exercise developed by Donald Batchelder and Bill Harshbarger. Placing oneself in the role of a Martian anthropologist enables participants to see familiar things with very different eyes. While it may take some imagination to do so, the result is a concrete experience which can be applied to the real world.
Extractions: University of Edinburgh This paper introduces Ghostwriter, a virtual role-play environment suitable for educational drama. The target user group are eleven to twelve year old school pupils. The idea of a virtual environment for dramatic activities may seem contradictory, as noted by Danet and colleagues: In the past, we have always understood the "magic" of theater to happen in specially set aside spaces, in which a special form of communication between audience and performers sets off "sparks" of a unique kind. The very physicality of theater has always been a very important component of it. Indeed, some might argue that without the presence of the body, theater cannot exist (Barba & Saverese, 1991). The expression "virtual theater" is, consequently, an oxymoron, bringing together two contradictory elements in a manner which creates an explosion of new meaning (Danet, Wachenhauser, Cividalli, Bechar-Israeli, & Rosenbaum-Tamari, 1995, Computers and theatre section, para. 1). below Ghostwriter is also used as a story writing preparation activity in the same way as real life role-play is used in the classroom to motivate and inspire children to write. The evaluation of this educational goal is presented in Robertson (2001) and Robertson and Good (in press). The characterization techniques used in stories written after using Ghostwriter was compared to the characterization in stories written under normal classroom circumstances. The stories were compared using a new, fine grained analysis scheme for assessing childrens writing. The main result was that the stories written after the virtual role-play contained more indications of characters relationships, particularly as portrayed through dialogue, than did normal classroom stories. Expert evaluation of the role-play sessions and resulting stories supports the view that the virtual role-play environment is particularly beneficial to children with low literacy achievement.

Cutting people off left and right, loving to hear herself talk, over-simplifying everything possible and talking for a half hour about how Bush is a wuss because he flew to Nebraska after 9/11. To top it off, and lose me for good after only an hour, she had the nerve to be utterly disrespectul and rude to Ralph Nader, forcing him eventually to hang up on her saying "this is not a good start for Air America." I agree. This is a man that had done more good for America than anyone else I can think of at the moment. You can argue about whether to vote for him is a good idea, but please lay off the fear-baiting and undemocratic notion that he can not run for office (and keep Kerry in check now that Dean is gone).
