Snakk Om: Learning Analytics and Data Privacy - Legal foundations in Higher Education
A central part of digitalization in Higher Education involves access to more data. This data can potentially be used to provide better outcomes for students in terms of learning. In this seminar we'll ask: How can HE institutions balance the need for better knowledge about student learning and with the duty to comply with the GDPR?
To be able to move towards more student-centered forms of teaching, we need to conduct empirical analytical studies of how students learn and which changes create the best results. To this end, the ability to connect data from multiple sources is essential. At the same time, educational institutions must comply with the GDPR requirements and safeguard the students' right to privacy. It often seems that the legal framework places more restrictions on what educational institutions can actually do with such analysis, rather than provide opportunities. The aim of this seminar is therefore to identify a viable way forward that takes into account and balances these considerations.
