Description

Workshop: Evaluation, Data Protection and Innovation

Including a practical session on the upcoming changes to UK Data Protection Law

In this workshop you will advance your organisation's preparation for the new UK (and EU) data protection law (General Data Protection RegulationGDPR). Unlike other programmes, we will focus on evaluation data -- existing data and data to be collected in the future. During the interactive sessions, you will master new terms and concepts about 1) data and privacy protection, 2) linked and open data, and 3) the valuable role a Theory of Change plays in data strategy and protection.

This exciting afternoon promises to help you:

  • Navigate data collection and evaluation under the GDPR with practical advice and guidance

  • Meet (and begin collaborating with) other professionals dealing with data in their day-to-day work

  • Get to know leaders in data innovation

Led by The Social Innovation Partnership (TSIP), NetworkedPlanet, and Digital Catapult Centre, the interactive workshop will be presented in four parts:

Adrienne Monteath-van Dok from TSIP will introduce the role that a Theory of Change can play in data design. Adrienne will use Camp Ballot, a mock organisation that collects data in real time via SMS to improve the quality of services offered to refugees in refugee camps, to help you work through the data challenges you face with a safe and practical example.

Jen Williams, Software Developer and Data Consultant from NetworkedPlanet, will further build on this example, explaining the world of Open and Linked Data and guiding a discussion of how thinking across the web-of-data could support Camp Ballot’s mission.

Lea Gorgulu Webb from NetworkedPlanet (an innovator, lawyer, and data strategist) will then lead a hands on session for understanding and working toward compliance with the GDPR. You will use your organisation or Camp Ballot to gain experience working with the data protection laws of the EU and UK.

Once you’ve mastered the main elements of the GDPR, Lucie Burgess, from Digital Catapult Centre will discuss innovative concepts and approaches to help you continue to comply with data protection and privacy and build trust with your service users.

The session will end with details of where to turn for further help, followed by networking drinks.

If you are a manager, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) professional, or responsible for data in your organisation, this session is for you if:

  • You need to provide guidance and informed leadership advice to an agency that works with people

  • You understand that there are serious and institution-threatening penalties for failing to handle data carefully

  • You are a professional who works with data, but data and data design is not your realm of expertise

  • You are considering what to provide to your teams for training over the next year

  • You would like to meet other professionals and managers in the public, social and tech sectors
