Learning Experience

The Learning Lab experience is supported by both asynchronous and synchronous components. Each Learning Lab sequence includes a set of resources, an asynchronous discussion, and an interactive live session, all of which culminate in the development of a project or application to apply learning to local and specific contexts in support of the learning objectives.


Welcome Session

February 7, 2022, 3:00–4:00 p.m. ET

This is a live session to learn the details of the Learning Lab, the Canvas site, and expectations for the microcredential. There will also be time to get to know your fellow Lab partners and facilitator.

Learning Sequence 1: Privacy Fundamentals

February 9, 2022, 3:00–4:30 p.m. ET

We will discuss the various concepts that make up the discipline, as well as the privacy legal landscape that applies to higher ed. We will consider some examples of higher ed activities that impact privacy.

Learning Sequence 2: Privacy in Practice

February 16, 2022, 3:00–4:30 p.m. ET

We will begin with the fair information practice principles and good practices. Learners will apply privacy standards and principles to an activity from their own work. We will conclude by discussing the EDUCAUSE 2021 Horizon Action Plan: Privacy and the future of privacy in higher education.

Culmination Session

February 23, 2022, 3:00–4:30 p.m. ET

The Learning Lab will conclude with an application or implementation project (described below) and a closing live session to review and process the learning from the lab.

Lab Implementation Project

Think about one activity in your job that requires handling personal data. Based on what you have learned in this course, document the data life cycle for this personal data (i.e., the who, what, where, when, why, and how). We will use this information to develop a preliminary privacy notice for your activity.
