Balancing Data-Collection and Data Protection
Speakers on this Panel will discuss their journeys so far into data protection and privacy. They have (had) built GDPR compliance into their systems and tools for Higher Education and invite you to learn from their tests and triumphs.
Legal insights will be offered too, including a review of the past 6 months since the new data protection regulation has been enforced, as well as advice on what to expect and how to prepare for 2019.

Using WhatsApp to Draw Doctors into Our VLE to Engage with a Professional Development Programme
I am a Senior Educational Technologist with over ten years experience in Higher Education. Skilled in Educational Technology, Instructional Design, Curriculum Development, Distance Learning and E-Learning. I have a strong academic background with a first degree in Computer Science (UEA), then PCGE (Lanc), PGCert, and MA e-learning (Lanc).
I encourage best use of TEL by HE lecturers using tools such as D2L’s Brightspace VLE, the Panopto video hosting service, and Turnitin. This is achieved via blog posts and guides, course reviews, and delivering CPD sessions. I tweet @DBCallaghan and @LSTMTEL, use TEL discussion lists, and TEL journals for keeping ahead in the profession, networking and sharing best practice. I review for ALT & BJET, and have written many blog posts (e.g. Learning Edge Blog at Edge Hill, plus blogspot dbcallaghan). My first journal article on the experiences of International Students using Action Learning is published in Action Learning Research and Practice.

6 Months GDPR – Experience of a Global Law Firm
Kirsten Wolgast, LL.M. (University of Canterbury, NZ), is a German lawyer and partner at the global law firm Pinsent Masons. She studied laws and philosophy in Germany and New Zealand and was admitted as Rechtsanwältin in Germany in 2006. She specialises in IT and data protection laws and has assisted various organizations in their GDPR implementation projects, including various institutions in the health and research sector. Beyond her immediate legal practice, Kirsten is very interested in all sorts of legal tech solutions, including legal serious games and legal learning software. 6 months after the GDPR has entered into force, she believes it is time to start discussing whether the GDPR actually achieves what it aims at. Do we really have a harmonized European data protection regime? Does the GDPR protect data subjects' interests sufficiently?
