First Year Experience

This workshop delivers an action-oriented introduction to personal data privacy designed for new college students. The session is designed to reveal the systems in place to collect and analyze online behavioral data, and to unveil the real-world consequences of online profiling in contexts like sentiment shaping, consumer preferences, employment, healthcare, personal finance, and law enforcement. In lieu of a prescriptive approach, students analyze case studies to observe how online behaviors impact real-world opportunities and reflect on the benefits and risks of technology use to develop purposeful online behaviors and habits that align with their individual values. Developing knowledge practices regarding privacy and the commodification of personal information and embodying the core library values of privacy and intellectual freedom, the workshop promotes a proactive rather than reactive approach and presents a spectrum of privacy preferences across a range of contexts in order to respect students’ autonomy and agency in personal technology use.

This one-shot lesson plan was designed for first-year community college students in a First Year Experience (FYE) course at Lone Star College-CyFair Library, a joint use academic and public library branch of the Harris County Public Library. The lesson plan introduces students to information resources available in print and online in an 80-minute tour and classroom session. Librarians also collaborated with FYE instructors to align the lesson plan’s activities with course outcomes and financial literacy topics covered on the FYE syllabus around the time the one-shots are scheduled. Students work in groups, complete a worksheet, present their work as a group, and reflect in a minute paper at the end of the session.
