Mini-Symposium

Computing for the Social Good in Computer Science Education

Computing for the Social Good: Educational Practices (CSG-Ed), is an umbrella term meant to incorporate any educational activity, from small to large, that endeavors to convey and reinforce computing’s social relevance and potential for positive societal impact.

Are you a CSG-Ed practitioner? Present your work at this mini-symposium.
Not a CSG-Ed practitioner – attend and learn how to become one!

This FREE SIGCAS sponsored mini-symposium is an opportunity for CSG-Ed practitioners to present their projects/practices and meet like-minded colleagues. The goal is for current and future CSG- Ed practitioners to share acquired wisdom, discover new collaborators, and review lessons learned. Furthermore, we will discuss how we can grow the CSG-Ed movement with a focus on attracting and supporting educators who value the impact of CSG-Ed.
