Data School DEDA seminar: submission deadline May 31st

Utrecht University’s Data School will host its first international DEDA seminar on September 25th, 2024. The deadline for submission is May 31st.

The Data Ethics Decision Aid (DEDA), a toolkit developed by the Data School, maps ethical issues in data projects. It documents the deliberation process and stimulates accountability towards the various stakeholders and the public. 

This seminar will bring together researchers, educators and practitioners utilizing DEDA for participatory observation, teaching, or developing value-sensitive design. The seminar is primarily focused on evaluating, exploring and advancing the use of DEDA in academic research and teaching contexts. Aspiring DEDA users are also very much welcome.

During the seminar there will be three rounds of expertise workshops: 

  1. Societal impact: Stakeholder engagement with DEDA 
  2. Research methods: Participatory observation with DEDA 
  3. Education: Teaching data ethics for students and professionals with DEDA 

If you work with DEDA or plan to work with it, the Data School would like to hear from you. Your experiences, pitfalls, opportunities, practices, insights and results are invaluable to the advancement of DEDA.

Please visit the Data School website for detailed information on how to participate.
