ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Big Data has come to the classroom, and colleges and universities are exploring ways to extract nascent value hidden in troves of student data using learning analytics technology. This technology may radically change student assessment practices, personalize learning, and improve institutional efficiencies in a time of austerity in higher education. However, increased use of sensitive student data flows presents unique privacy concerns. The author argues that students should be informed about who uses their personal information, and the author states how student privacy dashboards built on top of technical identity layers can enhance student control over how their information flows.
