Open Course Materials

The Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data project is supporting the development of new curricular material and training a new generation of researchers and citizens with the multidisciplinary perspectives required to address the complex issues surrounding data privacy.

Through our project's research efforts, we hope to drive the creation of new educational materials and modules in Harvard’s ongoing effort to enhance awareness of the opportunities and risks associated with the development of digital culture. Our existing and planned undergraduate, graduate and open-access curricula will immediately incorporate new ideas developed through this project on how and why the information all around us can be made trustworthy and used for personal and public benefit.

With these goals in mind, we are pleased to be able to offer the following educational resources on a variety of topics related to privacy. We will continually update these materials in the future, in the hopes of creating a valuable public resource for education on data privacy.
