ALL speakers and topics are subject to confirmation.
|Ethics of System Administration||A review of common legal considerations for system administrators focusing on the control and monitoring of email and internet use. In addition to considering the relationship between system administration and the Data Protection Act, Human Rights Act, Freedom of Information Act and Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, this legal overview session will offer practical data protection compliance tips for data cleansing and data security and consider the liability of employers for the actions of employees and users.|
|IT and Disabilities||The Code of Practice that accompanies the Disability Discrimination
Act (part 4) gives the following examples:
A tutor in Zoology delivers one of his modules through a computer-based learning environment and awards marks for students' participation in online discussion. The system does not work with a visually impaired student's software. The student is likely to be placed at a substantial disadvantage.
A university encourages its lecturers to put lecture notes on the institution intranet. It introduces new procedures to ensure that all notes put on the intranet meet established guidelines to ensure there is no conflict with specialist software or features that students with dyslexia may be using. It therefore anticipates reasonable adjustments that it might need to make for certain disabled students.
Both of these examples have the potential to have a large impact on the work of IT professionals across Higher Education. This session will give a 20 minute overview of some of these issues and allow 20 minutes to address specific issues from the audience.
