Open practices, digital sanctuaries: A trans-institutional conversation about students risk and agency in Domains initiatives

Feedback form is now closed.
Digital Sanctuary, modeled on the sanctuary city and campus movement, asks universities and colleges to seriously question their student data practices, policies, and systems. Rather than assuming that our closed student data systems are safest for our students, Digital Sanctuary demands a more nuanced look at the dangers. Sharing that critical process in the open is an educational exercise in student empowerment.

In this session, four colleagues from diverse institutions will discuss how their domains projects are encouraging conversations about student risk and agency, and how both closed and open environments at our institutions impact our understanding of that risk and agency. What might we learn about protecting our students through our domains projects, and how can we work together across institutions to advocate for more principled data practices, policies, systems, and curricula?
