The Datafied Classroom

The Datafied Classroom is a three-year research project that will investigate faculty perspectives of student privacy and their practices in relation to emerging learning analytics tools and initiatives. The research team will conduct a survey investigating how faculty incorporate student privacy resources into their courses and address student privacy in their instructional designs and adoption of educational technologies. Building on the results from the survey, the research team will aim to conduct 30 semi-structured interviews with faculty, librarians, and instructional technologists. The final phase of the project uses the empirical findings from the survey and interviews to facilitate student privacy discussions among faculty, librarians, and instructional technologists. This project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
