Responsible Computer Science Challenge

Responsible Computer Science Challenge


The Challenge participants and collaborators have put together a number of resources to help others use the materials in their own classrooms.


Global Community of Practice

This Global Community of Practice is a curated and supported global community working towards integrating social responsibility and ethics into computing curricula. This community of practice has a specific focus on pedagogy and teaching, with the aim to support a cross disciplinary group of people. If you identify with this community, sign up here.

This community includes people who are part of the Responsible Computer Science Challenge, and those working more broadly with computing, social responsibility responsibility, and ethics curricula. This community includes disciplines outside of computing that are critical for computing. It includes academics, researchers, industry practitioners, Computer Science education researchers, pedagogy experts, and more. The community of practice will offer opportunities for collaboration, peer learning exchange, and periodic presentations and events relevant to social responsibility, ethics, computer science, research, pedagogy, and technology.
