Description

At this event, key INDEx findings in relation to data privacy and data protection, informed by close to 30,000 students and staff who teach from across Irish higher education, are summarised and then explored with respect to teaching and learning, institutional policies, digital and data literacies, and student-staff partnership.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

At this event, key INDEx findings in relation to data privacy and data protection, informed by close to 30,000 students and staff who teach from across Irish higher education, are summarised and then explored with respect to teaching and learning, institutional policies, digital and data literacies, and student-staff partnership. Considering the importance of institutions’ GDPR obligations and concerns about personal data privacy more broadly, it is important to ensure students’ data privacy and protection, to communicate clearly to the institutional community regarding related protective measures that are in place, and to support both staff and students with the necessary knowledge and resources. With just half of students agreeing that their institution protected their data privacy, fewer than a third agreeing that they were informed about how their personal data was stored and used, and half of all staff who teach agreeing that they were informed about their responsibilities with regard to managing learner data securely, the INDEx findings suggest that additional work is required on this issue.
