Teaching & Learning
The methods of teaching and learning are continually evolving. New technologies create new opportunities for the way we reach and activate students. In doing so, we can rethink the freedoms and priorities of the teacher, too.
Personal Data in Remote Teaching
As the world copes with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, teachers everywhere are navigating new challenges and interruptions in order to get their classes online. At best, learning environments are easily transferred to virtual teaching methods. At worst, severe alterations to the ways courses are delivered, new technology, processes, and expertise are required.

Working in new education environments, using new technology, and adapting teaching processes can all have serious implications for your data responsibility.
