Title Your Professional Digital Identity: Case Studies from the Digital Tattoo Project
Faculty/College/Unit UBC Library
Status Active
Duration 2 Year
Initiation 04/01/2017
Project Summary

The Digital Tattoo project is a collaboration between students and the UBC Library, UBC’s Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, the University of Toronto’s iSchool. Our goal is to provide resources to support students making informed decisions about their digital identities and data ownership. Initially developed with a TLEF grant (in 2009), the project is currently sustained with base-level funding from the I. K. Barber Learning Centre budget and in-kind support from our collaborators. Requested funds will extend the reach and impact of these resources by developing case studies for students in professional programs, where they are widely used as a learning resource. Over two years, this pilot will be leveraged to develop a collection of open case studies to support graduates in Education, Law and Health Sciences. This year, we will build on our existing relationship with the Teacher Education Program to develop and pilot while identifying collaborators in the disciplines of Law and Health Sciences for an expanded project in year two.
