We are increasingly aware of how the “surveillance economy” shapes our online lives. But what about the online tools, services, and products that are used by students and instructors? How is our teaching and learning data – and by extension our personal data – being collected and used? This session will explore the present state of digital learning and discuss ways to better understand and respond to these practices. We’ll also provide resources and strategies for keeping ourselves informed and in control as we move through our educational and professional lives.
