#StudentPrivacyStatement October 24th, 2019, 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific

Join a zoom call and edit session around the idea of a student privacy statement. In a recent Domains19 conference presentation and EDUCAUSE Review article Autumm Caines and Erin Rose Glass proposed the idea of a statement to be placed in the syllabus encouraging students to ask questions about how their data is used in learning systems. From the article

"...Educators cannot sit on the sidelines when it comes to the issues surrounding students and data privacy. Our larger point is to ask educators to make a statement, be it in the syllabus or otherwise, about the need to educate students on these matters. Other ways to do so might be to create an assignment or even an entire course that addresses these issues, bring these issues to a curriculum committee, inquire about the use of data on campus, and/or request professional development opportunities related to addressing data privacy concerns.

We invite educators to share their adaptations of the syllabus statement, or other ways they are provoking the discussion about data privacy education, on Twitter with the hashtag #StudentPrivacyStatement so that we can learn how others are choosing to address these issues. We will be engaging with this hashtag after the first week of publication and hosting an open video conference via Zoom as part of Ethical EdTech edit-a-thon on October 24, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. (Pacific)."
