CSCW 2020 Workshop: *“Decolonizing Learning Spaces for Sociotechnical
Research and Design.”*

*Submission deadline: September 20, 2020.*

As spaces for learning about Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW)
research and practice become more diverse, there is a pressing need to
revise the universal collaborative and pedagogical structures supporting
them. Specifically, it has become urgent to explore how to ‘de-center’
dominant assumptions about who learns in these environments. Our workshop
aims to collectively explore how to craft learning spaces that resist
universality by recognizing and valuing other perspectives and realities.
We will consider systemic roots of how learning spaces for socio-technical
research are setup, ways in which they can be reconfigured, and explore
potential research opportunities in the space.

We invite participants to submit contributions (*3-6 pages position paper,
or a 300-word abstract*)  that critically reflect on personal experiences
in spaces for learning CSCW research and design practices, including their
efforts to have their voices heard, or promoting conversations and
connections to making CSCW learning spaces more welcoming to diverse forms
of knowledge and doing. We also invite participants who have not yet heard
of or thought of decolonizing practices, and welcome their position
papers/abstracts to include a reflection on the potential and/or
limitations of this approach for CSCW.
