Universities and libraries are increasingly moving to use the data streams created by their constituents in order to provide the best services and resources possible, but the use of this information challenges long-held principles with regard to privacy, confidentiality, informed consent, and other values. This presentation examines the role of libraries as producers and consumers of educational analytics, and proposes a framework of principles and best practices for the stewardship of these data throughout their lifecycle.
Analytics and Privacy: A Proposed Framework for Negotiating Service and Value Boundaries was presented at CNI’s December 2014 member meeting by Lisa Hinchliffe of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Andrew Asher of Indiana University.Video of the presentation is now available online:
