TitleLiving in a Digital World: Protecting Your Digital Reputation
Faculty/College/UnitUBC Library
Duration1 Year
Project Summary

UBC students are creators and consumers of digital information in their personal and academic lives. When they graduate, they continue these activities as citizens "in a knowledge-based society." Thus, UBC graduates must be competent in the ethical, legal and appropriate use of information.

This project will provide a broad and flexible program for educating students about their rights and responsibilities around the creation and consumption of digital information. At the centre of the proposal, an interactive online tutorial will provide a resource for all campus units. Support materials will promote additional learning opportunities.
