IMCanadaConnect – Data Privacy, Higher Education – Why Should We Care?

Today’s student attitudes toward data privacy will shape the policies and practices that govern the internet.

Society needs to better understand college student attitudes, expectations, and behaviors regarding data privacy, and take a more active role in shaping behaviors. As students have become more aware of this ongoing data collection and use, they have begun to express their concerns and desires to limit the use of their data to guide institutional decision making.

Recommendations will address the collection and use of personal data, and how to gain student trust in managing their private information.

Session starts Wednesday, February 28 at 12:00 CST

Introducing IMCanadaConnect

Connecting Information and Records Management Professionals across Canada

Information is one of your organization’s biggest assets. Learning and sharing ideas is the way of the future!

The records and information management community has been through years of covid and working from home has made remote work a part of many hybrid work environments. This has made in-person collaboration with our colleagues and the conducting of typical ARMA Chapter business substantially more difficult.

With this in mind, the ARMA Chapters of Canada, including ARMA Edmonton, are participating in a community program providing sessions on important records and information management topics relevant to Canadian business operations to personnel responsible for managing corporate information. The Canadian Chapters and WesternIM are working together to build a source of Canadian content for both members and associates.

The plan is to have monthly virtual sessions on an ongoing basis.  The sessions are recorded and available for viewing in case you miss one.

Expect an email and web posting in advance of each hosted session.  The web location for past and future sessions of IMCanadaConnect as well as the WesternIM “Learn with Us” series is available on the WesternIM web site at Blog – WesternIM.
