Enhancing Privacy Education with a Technical Emphasis in IT Curriculum
Peltsverger, Svetlana; Zheng, Guangzhi
Journal of Information Technology Education: Innovations in Practice, v15 p1-17 2016
The paper describes the development of four learning modules that focus on technical details of how a person's privacy might be compromised in real-world scenarios. The paper shows how students benefited from the addition of hands-on learning experiences of privacy and data protection to the existing information technology courses. These learning modules raised students' awareness of potential breaches of privacy as a user as well as a developer. The demonstration of a privacy breach in action helped students to design, configure, and implement technical solutions to prevent privacy violations. The assessment results demonstrate the strength of the technical approach.
