One of Jisc’s activities is to monitor and, where possible, influence regulatory developments that affect us and our customer universities, colleges and schools as operators of large computer networks. Since Janet and its customer networks are classified by Ofcom as private networks, postings here are likely to concentrate on the regulation of those networks. Postings here are, to the best of our knowledge, accurate on the date they are made, but may well become out of date or unreliable at unpredictable times thereafter. Before taking action that may have legal consequences, you should talk to your own lawyers. NEW: To help navigate the many posts on the General Data Protection Regulation, I've classified them as most relevant to developing a GDPR compliance process, GDPR's effect on specific topics, or how the GDPR is being developed. Or you can just use my free GDPR project plan.

Data and Ethics: update

Earlier this week I did a presentation to a group from Dutch Universities on the ethics work that Jisc has done alongside its studies, pilots and services on the use of data. This covered the development of our Learning Analytics Code of Practice, as well as our plans to apply that Code to wellbeing applications, and work to develop an Impact Assessment toolkit for Intelligent Campus applications.

Thanks to SURFnet colleagues for arranging the visit, and to everyone for stimulating discussions.
