SIGCAS Symposium on Computing for the Social Good: Educational Practices

by Karla Carter last modified 2015-03-29 16:17

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. This SIGCAS sponsored symposium is an opportunity for CSG-Ed practitioners to present their projects/practices. The goal is for current and future CSG-Ed practitioners to share best practices, discover new collaborators, review common pitfalls (and how they can be avoided), and discuss how SIGCAS can support the many varied individual and group CSG-Ed efforts. Conjuring up good assignments is always a hard task. Attend and come away with new ideas and assignments for your courses. Come and hear presentations from colleagues who are motivating their students by infusing social relevance into their assignments and projects. Get great ideas for your own classes and learn techniques that will work for you.
