Learning Analytics Speaker Series| Data Doubles: What do students think about their privacy on campus?

Thursday, March 12, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Presented by: Dorothea Salo

Each of us has a “data double,” a digital duplicate of our lives captured in data and spread across assemblages of information systems. (datadoubles.org)

The Data Doubles research project, funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, is investigating student perceptions of their privacy regarding learning analytics practices in universities and their libraries.

This is a multi-institution, 3-phased project that includes:

  • Phase 1 – preliminary interviews with students about privacy and learning analytics;
  • Phase 2 – a survey for undergrad and graduate students to be deployed at each participating institution, and
  • Phase 3 – scenario-based focus groups with students to explore privacy and possible applications of learning analytics.

Join co-investigator Dorothea Salo to discuss Phase I preliminary results, which suggest that students are uninformed about the extent to which universities and libraries are able to gather data about them, and desire better opportunities to engage with and control use of their data.
