Tech4PRI practitioner learning event
The Technology for Participation Research Initiative (Tech4PRI) is a practitioner learning research project of the Affiliated Network for Social Accountability in East Asia and the Pacific (ANSA-EAP) funded by Making All Voices Count (MAVC). It aims to look into the experiences and lessons of different CSOs that incorporate ICTs into their action projects.
The Tech4PRI team are running a peer-learning event in an effort to raise the discussions among practitioners about appropriate technologies and ICTs for development. The one-day learning activity is composed of two main sessions:
- The state-of-the art in using ICTs and digital technologies for civil society-led citizen participation - this session will provide an overview about the patterns and trends in the use of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) for citizen participation in order to initiate conversation about “best practices” and trends in how ICTs have been applied in development projects
- Getting practical: using ICTs and digital technologies for citizen participation initiatives - here practitioners will be able to discuss and identify their needs and concerns on the use of ICTs in the implementation of their respective initiatives. Practitioners will share their experiences, concerns and learning with respect to their citizen participation initiatives.
Dr Erwin Alampay from the National College of Public Administration and Governance, University of the Philippines, and Dr Emmanuel Lallana from Ideacorp Inc. will join the event as speakers.
