How University Professors are Including Online Privacy Issues in General Instruction

Posted on 10/28/2016 11:01:46 AM

The Center for Teaching Excellence and its Reflective Practice Project announce an additional CTE pedagogy panel (will count as a RP Large Group Meeting) in an effort to support Cyber Security Awareness. It will be held as the last session in the annual Cyber Security/Information Assurance Day on November 3, 2016, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the HUB Ohio Room.

We live in an age when new technologies give us unprecedented access to personalized information delivery. With this convenience comes the opportunity for online service providers to collect and share or sell your personal information. College professors and administrators recognize the need to increase students' awareness of the threats that exist and provide them with knowledge and tools that will help them protect their privacy as they use online services.

In this session, IUP professors and administrators will discuss how they inform students about the dangers related to the use of free online services that collect data from us as we use them, how this can make them the target of spammers, hackers, and identity thieves, and simple ways that students can protect themselves while still taking advantage of new technology.

Panelists: Melissa Calderon, Faculty, Child Development and Family Relations; Amanda Marshall, coordinator of User Services, IUP IT Support; Sara Parme, IUP Scholarly Communications librarian; and Zachary Sava, assistant director, IUP Career and Professional Development Center

No RSVPs are necessary.
