Call for Expression of Interest for Participation in the Free e-Learning Course

The Prioritizing Privacy project is pleased to announce a call for expressions of interest for participation in the free e-learning course on “Privacy and Library Learning Analytics.”  The course will take place October 3-November 12, 2021. There are 50 slots available and there is no fee to participate.

The six-week e-learning course will guide participants in exploring learning analytics, privacy theory, privacy-by-design principles, and research ethics. Participants will develop and present their own personal “Privacy Sourcebook” to document their learning and guide their practice after the course is complete. The course format is cohort-based and asynchronous, offered in the learning management system Canvas and structured by weekly deadlines and required readings, learning activities, and online discussions. Additional information about the curriculum is available on the project website (https://prioritizingprivacy.org/curriculum/). 

To apply for this free opportunity, fill out the application to participate by September 8: https://iu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a4eOZeHy87dlUN0

Applicants will need to confirm that they:

  • Work in an academic library in the United States.
  • Have an interest in learning about academic libraries and learning analytics.
  • Have an interest in learning about privacy and other ethical considerations in learning analytics.
  • Commit to spending up to 4-5 hours/week during the course to engage in the community of practice and complete the learning activities.

Anticipating that there may be more interest than we can accommodate, selected participants will be notified by the end of the day on September 13 and others will be informed of the waitlist. A second offering of this e-learning course and thus a second call for applicants is scheduled for early next year. 

If you have any questions about this project or the application to participate in the e-learning course, please feel contact Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, PI (ljanicke@illinois.edu) or Kyle Jones, Co-PI (kmlj@iupui.edu).
