Privacy and Learning Analytics: A Data Ethics Workshop for Library Professionals
Amigos Library Services and the University Libraries at Washington University in St. Louis are pleased to host a Privacy and Learning Analytics workshop at Washington University's Danforth University Center (DUC) on March 31st from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.
This in-person workshop will be facilitated by Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Professor & Coordinator for Research and Teaching Professional Development, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Principal Investigator (PI) for Prioritizing Privacy.
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, and much more. The workshop is an offering of Prioritizing Privacy, which is supported by an IMLS National Leadership Grant.
After the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Analyze learning analytics and the ways in which they may create privacy harms.
- Adjust a learning analytics practice to strategically minimize privacy harms and maximize specific benefits.
- Advocate for privacy protections in learning analytics policies and practices.
Registration is limited to 25 attendees currently working in an academic library and there is no cost for attendance. Priority will be given to Amigos member libraries and consideration will be made for representation across geography, size and type of institution, and the individual experiences of participants. Confirmations for participation will be issued beginning February 17th.
