Prioritizing Privacy: Bringing Library Values to Campus Learning Analytics Work
Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe
Libraries are increasingly engaging with learning analytics at their institutions. This workshop will guide participants in exploring learning analytics, privacy theory, privacy-by-design principles, data ethics, etc. using the “Privacy Sourcebook” from the Prioritizing Privacy project as the basis. The “Privacy Sourcebook” is designed as a living document that enables librarians to document their thinking, reflect learning, and guide practice after the workshop. The workshop prepares librarians to be engaged in campus dialogues and initiatives related to learning analysis and parallel assessment and evaluation practices. Prioritizing Privacy is funded by an IMLS National Leadership Grant (https://prioritizingprivacy.org/).
Participants will be prepared to:
- Describe the social, political, and technological elements of learning analytics in higher education, generally, and academic libraries, specifically.
- Plan for ethical and evidence-based library learning analytics projects that are based in privacy by design.
- Develop a learning plan for continuing professional development regarding learning analytics, information privacy, and ethical practice.
This is a free event. Registration limited to 25 people.
