Digital Privacy in Higher Education: A Practical Introduction to Tools and Strategies

September 26 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

From basic tools like email to more advanced collaborative platforms, we all use digital technology in our teaching. Given this reality, how can we keep both ourselves and our students digitally secure? In this session, led by Frans Albarillo (Library), we will look at privacy tools and strategies that will help keep online data and behavior private. You will learn about email masking, password managers, privacy-focused browsers (like Duck Duck Go, LibreWolf, and Brave,) productivity, and collaboration tools (like Etherpad and LibreOffice.) You’ll also learn about user strategies and techniques for protecting your data, including creating a data retention plan for your online course pages, using masked emails to manage your online identities, and thinking strategically about when to use a laptop or mobile device. This session aims to empower faculty to learn more about privacy tools to take control of their data, teaching material, and students’ online data.
