💪 Dissemination and training materials
Privacy Basics for Researchers Raw module materials
Several dissemination activities were created and organised to increase awareness and teach researchers the basic knowledge and skills about privacy.
Online module Privacy basics for researchers
We created an online module “Privacy basics for researchers”, a self-paced online module on Utrecht University’s Moodle platform that takes about 1,5 hours to complete. This module aims to give researchers a basic understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation in a research context. The module focuses on the following topics:
- Chapter 1: Personal data, sensitive personal data, roles in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Chapter 2: Legal basis in research, informing data subjects, data subjects’ rights
- Chapter 3: Privacy by Design and Privacy by Default, privacy scan, Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), privacy risks, data breach
- Chapter 4: Data security, access control, encryption, pseudonymisation, anonymisation, tools
- Chapter 5: Storing and sharing personal data, making personal data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR)
The module is open for everyone with a Utrecht University Solis-ID, although external researchers can also be added manually. Furthermore, the module materials are openly shared (CC-BY), so that others can reuse (parts of) the module.
Other dissemination activities
Other dissemination activities have included and will include:
- Presenting the project’s deliverables to support staff within and outside of Utrecht University.
- Presenting the project’s deliverables to researchers in, for example, department meetings or at community events.
- Presenting the project’s deliverables to research directors, heads of IT, etc. to increase their uptake.
- Linking to the project’s deliverables from existing web pages, such as the RDM website, the UU intranet, faculty RDM websites and websites from ethical committees.
