Sex, Lies, and Data Mining: Advocating for Student Privacy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Now is the time for librarians to stand and deliver against Learning Analytics (LA) practices that endanger student data privacy and integrity. Building capacity for LA should be consistent with the values of our profession. This session will focus on the challenges of bringing the two interests into alignment with an activity that asks participants to apply different ethical frameworks to actual cases in which student data is being harvested and put to use.

Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops with them in order to engage with the activity. However, it is not required that you have a laptop in order to participate.
