<aside> 💡 See our Theory to Practice: Context-Aware Systems Symposium at Brown University that took place on 10 & 11 March



Over the last two years, Civic Software Foundation has been working on Context-Aware Systems Learning Modules. Although this body of work has been piloted with a range of government, academic, and industry partners, this tour will be the first time we share it with broader audiences in different cities and countries, in multiple languages.

The tour focuses on the shift from theory to practice and what to expect when things sound good on paper but change very quickly in emergent and applied environments. We reach beyond discourse and criticism of the current landscape of data and ethics to offer tangible principles, methodologies, and frameworks within Context-Aware Systems while building a multidisciplinary collaboration environment to experience what more equitable approaches to technology creation feel like in action.

What’s on the tour?

While most of our tour events and their contents are not publicly available due to contractual obligations, here are some event titles we can share:

All of our events combine informative presentations with interactive lab components using real-world scenarios coming from our team’s lived experience in applied work to ignite creative thinking to challenge the most complex and pressing issues in the modern tech ecosystem.
