Important Course Information

Attendance and participation: Information Privacy meets on Mondays and alternate Wednesdays. You are expected to attend each class prepared to discuss the assigned reading. At the second class, students will be assigned to panels to prepare particular issues for discussion in greater depth. While I will call first on panel members, I will still expect students not on panel to participate. Engaged participation will help you to retain class material; excellent participation can also boost your grade.

Evaluation: The course will include an online discussion board and some short writing assignments, counting for one-third of the grade. Please sign in to the discussion group. The course will culminate in a final exam, which will ask you to draw on course readings to respond to hypothetical situations. Paul Schwartz's Fall 2000 Information Privacy Exam is a good sample, although the course coverage was somewhat different.
