Teaching the Right to the Future Tense: A Privacy Literacy Workshop
Workshop presented at ACRL 2023 (Association of College & Research Libraries). This hands-on workshop showcases current privacy literacy (PL) instruction practices in academic libraries, and supports participants in developing implementation-ready programs for their local contexts. Participants will engage in PL learning experiences, gain working knowledge of contemporary privacy challenges and solutions to build professional self-efficacy, and utilize a PL toolkit to develop program plans. Facilitators will frame these activities with emerging scholarship on algorithmic injustice. This bring-your-own-device (BYOD) interactive session equips library workers to explore PL, an expanding literacy according to the ACRL 2021 Environmental Scan, and advocate for what surveillance capitalism theorist Shoshana Zuboff terms "the right to the future tense." Learning outcomes: distinguish between privacy technologies and privacy literacy education in order to develop holistic and sustainable privacy literacy programming; gain working knowledge of contemporary privacy literacy practices in academic libraries in order to build professional self-efficacy; and develop privacy literacy programming in a supportive environment, including access to the presenters' toolkit, in order to lead privacy literacy education and advocacy initiatives in their local communities.
