Data Doubles

Data Doubles is a student-centered, three-year research agenda focusing on student perspectives of privacy issues associated with university and academic library participation in learning analytics (LA) initiatives. The collaborative team consists of scholars and practitioner experts collaborators at eight American higher education institutions. Three phases structure this project. The first uses a semi-structured interview method, the second a multi-institutional survey, and the third and final phase uses scenario-based focus groups. This project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
