The Lab offers innovative teaching opportunities for students to understand and imagine solutions to civil society’s challenges in a digitally dependent world. Our teaching seeks to nurture an emerging generation of scholars, community advocates, technologists, and policymakers shaping the future of digital civil society.

Our flagship course is the “Digital Civil Society” Seminar – a collaborative class taught and re-imagined every year by the Lab’s postdocs and lead scholars.

The Lab also organizationally supports Computing and Society, which is an interdisciplinary group of Stanford students dedicated to bringing more discussions about the ethical and societal implications of computing and computer science research to the Stanford community.
