RSVP Now for Principle 9: Be Collaborative Event on Thursday, June 25 8:30am-12:30pm

Dear colleagues,

FHI 360 and USAID invite you to RSVP now for ICT4D Principle 9: Be
Collaborative
http://ictworks.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=84e9f392a668e74df589375c7&id=257f88f0a3&e=6c56cfd83b
to join your colleagues and peers thinking about the new digital
development principles we all should be following.

The Principles Working Group is translating the Principles for Digital
Development
http://ictworks.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=84e9f392a668e74df589375c7&id=b0c17c4408&e=6c56cfd83b
into practical action to amplify the good work of USAID and other donors in
advancing the reach of ICTs in international development.

Former USAID Administrator, Dr. Rajiv Shah, emphasized the importance of
this work in the USAID Impact blog on Oct 20, 2014
http://ictworks.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=84e9f392a668e74df589375c7&id=824faebec7&e=6c56cfd83b:

“Representing our commitment not only to innovation, but sustainable
results, we’re thrilled to be launching these principles in partnership
with over a dozen donors and multilaterals, including the Bill & Melinda
Gates Foundation, UNICEF, the Swedish International Development Cooperation
Agency, the United Nations Development Program and the World Food Program.”

Please RSVP now
http://ictworks.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=84e9f392a668e74df589375c7&id=f02108f985&e=6c56cfd83b
to join us on June 25. We’ll be focusing on the opportunities and
challenges leveraging and contributing to a broader commons of resource,
action, and knowledge to extend the impact of development interventions
with a focus on two themes:

  • How can we engage diverse expertise across disciplines and
    industries at all stages of the development process, and work across sector
    silos to create coordinated and more holistic approaches?
  • How should we document work, results, processes and best practices
    and share them widely through tools like Creative Commons licenses, so
    others can learn from our successes, and not repeat our mistakes

Leading us in these discussions will be a cohort of experts at the center
of cross-sector collaboration and open discussions, including:

This will be an interactive session with curated discussions and breakout
sessions to develop a collaborative future for the Digital Development
Principles. It will also be in-person only, so be sure to RSVP now to attend
http://ictworks.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=84e9f392a668e74df589375c7&id=4783351719&e=6c56cfd83b
.

Digital Principle 9: Be Collaborative
8:30am - 12:30pm
Thursday, June 25th
FHI 360 Boardroom
1875 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20009

Will there be an online version of this conversation or the event, so that
those of us not working in DC might contribute and attend?

Thanks in advance…

Elie,

Each event in this series is organized by a different group, some have had
an online component, others have not, based on the activity planned and the
facilities of the host. For this event, we don’t have a meeting room that’s
conducive for online events.

Don’t let that hold you back from engaging. In fact, we’d love for others
to organize their own events to discuss the Principles. What about hosting
one at Singularity University for the Silicon Valley contingent? if you
feel you need a catalyst, Merrick Schaefer is rumored to be out there in
July. You could make that one on/offline as you desired.

Hi Elie,

I’m Seattle based and would be happy to have a quick discussion with you
and/or Merrick and/or anyone else who would care. What if I create a call
for 3:00 -4:00 PM Pacific on the 25th and add the number for the group? if
it’s just yourself and me then that’s great. If anyone else want’s to hop
on the line (my first post in the group so I know very little) that’s just
extra :-). Thoughts? Anyone else on the west coast interested?

Thanks,
Tucker

Hi Elie,

I’m Seattle based and would be happy to have a quick discussion with you and/or Merrick and/or anyone else who would care. What if I create a call for 3:00 -4:00 PM Pacific on the 25th and add the number for the group? if it’s just yourself and me then that’s great. If anyone else want’s to hop on the line (my first post in the group so I know very little) that’s just extra :-). Thoughts? Anyone else on the west coast interested?

Thanks,
Tucker

Don’t let that hold you back from engaging. In fact, we’d love for others to organize their own events to discuss the Principles. What about hosting one at Singularity University for the Silicon Valley contingent? if you feel you need a catalyst, Merrick Schaefer is rumored to be out there in July. You could make that one on/offline as you desired.

Asim you should have just gotten an invite request.

Elie, I noticed that you declined. Before we get too many more
individuals involved, is there a better time for you? I’d propose 4-5 PM as
an alternate, but so far 3-4 works for me and Naiomi. We can move the
conversation out of the group and into one on one emails if neither time
works.

Hi all,

I found some great summaries of the in-person discussions that are
happening up at http://digitalprinciples.org/. I hadn’t realized the
website had been redone, and what a surprise! We reference the principles
repeatedly in our work with partners (every chance we get!), and it’s
wonderful to see the resource start to grow and improve. Thanks to those
working on that — I image some of them are on this thread.

I wonder what it would look like if we created an open Google doc for each
principle and invited our colleagues in ICT4D all over the world to
contribute their thoughts. It seems to me like the easiest, cheapest, most
collaborative way to try to include a wider group than those usually in the
conversation (myself included).

Perhaps no one would contribute, but that seems like a pretty easy way to
fail — and it moves us towards being proactive and supporting a wider
community of practice. For my own work, I would love to invite my ICT4D
implementing partners to contribute and add their voices to our much-needed
discussion.

If this simple “Google Docs” approach seems attractive to you, I’ll create
ones with “shareable links” so that anyone with the link can contribute.
I’m happy to keep an eye on the pages, in case they get too messy…

And thanks to Wayan and the group for hosting a discussion that helps us
take it to the next level.

HI all,

My schedule teaching this summer means that I’m only able to make
asynchronous meetings and events, for the most part. Thanks for thinking of
me for your call, though.

All the same, my question is actually about how we can include stakeholders
in the field in these conversations – especially in a way that is
inclusive, asynchronous, and low-bandwidth friendly. I’ve seen a string of
these ICT4D Principle discussions based in the US with no online or forum
component, and it seems to privilege HQ voices over the ones doing this
work in the field. Those are the missing voices from the discussion – not
my own.

I’m not in a position to organize or set this up on my own, but I think
having a discussion about how to be more collaborative and inclusive in
these sessions is important and I’d like to be a part of making it happen.

-Elie

Hi Elie,

I’m Seattle based and would be happy to have a quick discussion with you
and/or Merrick and/or anyone else who would care. What if I create a call
for 3:00 -4:00 PM Pacific on the 25th and add the number for the group? if
it’s just yourself and me then that’s great. If anyone else want’s to hop
on the line (my first post in the group so I know very little) that’s just
extra :-). Thoughts? Anyone else on the west coast interested?

Thanks,

Tucker

Elie,

Each event in this series is organized by a different group, some have
had an online component, others have not, based on the activity planned and
the facilities of the host. For this event, we don’t have a meeting room
that’s conducive for online events.

Don’t let that hold you back from engaging. In fact, we’d love for
others to organize their own events to discuss the Principles. What about
hosting one at Singularity University for the Silicon Valley contingent? if
you feel you need a catalyst, Merrick Schaefer is rumored to be out there
in July. You could make that one on/offline as you desired.

advancing the reach of ICTs in international development.

Former USAID Administrator, Dr. Rajiv Shah, emphasized the importance of
this work in the USAID Impact blog on Oct 20, 2014

to join us on June 25. We’ll be focusing on the opportunities and
challenges leveraging and contributing to a broader commons of resource,
action, and knowledge to extend the impact of development interventions
with a focus on two themes:

  • How can we engage diverse expertise across disciplines and
    industries at all stages of the development process, and work across sector
    silos to create coordinated and more holistic approaches?
  • How should we document work, results, processes and best
    practices and share them widely through tools like Creative Commons
    licenses, so others can learn from our successes, and not repeat our
    mistakes

Leading us in these discussions will be a cohort of experts at the
center of cross-sector collaboration and open discussions, including:

This will be an interactive session with curated discussions and
breakout sessions to develop a collaborative future for the Digital
Development Principles. It will also be in-person only, so be sure to
RSVP now to attend

Hi Elie,

I’m glad to hear you like the design of the Principles website. It’s
something a number of us have been working on the last couple months.
Admittedly we’ve done a poor job thus far promoting the new look and
content. But I love that you’re already thinking of how and where to
contribute to the discussion.

One of things that we ultimately wanted the site to provide was a way for
folks in this working group as well others to comment, provide feedback,
contribute case studies or other resources, and post whatever was on their
mind about each Principle.

Our thought was to have people contribute in the comments of the Community
Insights
http://digitalprinciples.org/community-insights-principle-1-design-with-the-user/
page for each Principle. It’s not the most robust or collaborative system,
but its easy for anyone to access and keeps everything in one place. We
also plan to use both the Community Insights and the comments (in addition
to individual interviews) to inform a final report that we hope to publish
later this fall.

I know its not an ideal system, so I’m happy discuss any ideas you have on
how to improve the process. And I do think there is more that we can do to
promote the site and better communicate our goals for it. It’s one thing
that I hope gets brought up at Thursday’s event.

Thanks again for your great ideas!

Best,

John

Hi all,

I found some great summaries of the in-person discussions that are
happening up at http://digitalprinciples.org/. I hadn’t realized the
website had been redone, and what a surprise! We reference the principles
repeatedly in our work with partners (every chance we get!), and it’s
wonderful to see the resource start to grow and improve. Thanks to those
working on that — I image some of them are on this thread.

I wonder what it would look like if we created an open Google doc for each
principle and invited our colleagues in ICT4D all over the world to
contribute their thoughts. It seems to me like the easiest, cheapest, most
collaborative way to try to include a wider group than those usually in the
conversation (myself included).

Perhaps no one would contribute, but that seems like a pretty easy way to
fail — and it moves us towards being proactive and supporting a wider
community of practice. For my own work, I would love to invite my ICT4D
implementing partners to contribute and add their voices to our much-needed
discussion.

If this simple “Google Docs” approach seems attractive to you, I’ll create
ones with “shareable links” so that anyone with the link can contribute.
I’m happy to keep an eye on the pages, in case they get too messy…

And thanks to Wayan and the group for hosting a discussion that helps us
take it to the next level.
