I am the Digital Scholarship Librarian at UC San Diego. I research the ethical, intellectual, and educational dimensions of digital technology, information architecture, and data science from a humanistic lens. I also research emerging modes of public humanities and have a strong engagement with digital humanities and open access practices. I am founder of KNIT, a digital commons for UC San Diego, San Diego State University, and the San Diego Community College District, and co-founder of Ethical EdTech, a wiki and virtual learning community on ethical approaches to educational technology.
In higher education, we must work not only toward providing better security around student data but also toward educating students about the need to critically evaluate how their data is used and how to participate in shaping data privacy practices and policies.
This paper outlines a practical framework for capacity building to develop institutional digital humanities support for IT staff, librarians, administrators, and faculty with administrative responsibilities.
