The goal of Prioritizing Privacy is to strengthen the capacity of academic librarians to integrate privacy theory and principles with learning analytics practice.
Prioritizing Privacy is a three-year continuing education program that will train academic library practitioners to comprehensively address privacy and other related ethical implications of learning analytics projects.
The training program will guide participants to explore learning analytics, privacy theory, privacy-by-design principles, and research ethics and then present participants with case studies. Participants will develop a plan for a learning analytics project prioritizing privacy protections.
The Project Leaders
The project is led by Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe (PI, University of Illinois) and Kyle M. L. Jones (Co-PI, Indiana University-Indianapolis).
The Content Experts
Individuals with practical and theoretical expertise in the areas of learning analytics, information privacy, and data ethics are creating the curriculum.
The Prioritizing Privacy training curriculum will be designed for both in-person and online delivery and will be delivered in both modes.
