AT Deliverables

The question of the right to privacy must be one of the defining issues of our time.Salil Shetty

You are responsible for completing the following deliverables this semester.

Engagement

Success in this course will require you to do more than appear in class twice weekly and answer an occasional question. All of my students will be prepared to actively participate in our in-class discussions since that is a crucial way to take as much away from the course as possible. Please review the Engagement Rubric in the Engagement section of this site. Our conversations are ongoing, so you must engage your classmates with commentary, reaction, and/or analysis in class and online. Remember, conversation ” … is a form of interactive, spontaneous communication between two or more people …” generally, ” … written exchanges are usually not referred to as conversations.” The good news is that Teams will allow us to engage in synchronous or asynchronous written exchanges to stand in for conversations.

GenAI Journal

You will complete this deliverable by posting your journal entries to your Adobe Express GenAI Journal.

We will actively integrate GenAI platforms in the creative process of the course. Students will use Adobe Express to create a weekly journal, documenting their journey of using various GenAI tools. The GenAI Journal deliverable aims to enhance students’ understanding of AI technology, its potential in learning, and its practical application in different projects. The objectives of this deliverable include understanding the principles of GenAI and its applications, developing skills in Adobe Express for digital journaling and content creation, enhancing creativity and innovation through AI tools, and reflecting on the impact of AI on the creative process. The final deliverable will be a complete digital GenAI Journal compiled in Adobe Express, showcasing your journey and projects throughout the course. I will evaluate the depth of insight and understanding of GenAI’s role in the creative process, innovative use of GenAI platforms in journal entries and projects, effective use of Adobe Express for journaling, and regular updates and adherence to the submission schedule when assessing your Journals.

Prompt Engineering Exercise

You will complete this deliverable by posting prompt results to your Adobe Express GenAI Journal.

This deliverable will help students understand how to communicate with AI effectively, recognize the importance of clear and structured prompts, and reflect on the interaction between human input and AI output. The deliverable aims to develop skills in prompt engineering for AI interactions, specifically with ChatGPT. Students will craft prompts in various categories, engage with ChatGPT, and reflect on the process and outcomes. The journal will comprehensively record their learning journey in prompt engineering and AI interaction. This deliverable will enhance your understanding of AI communication and develop critical thinking and analytical skills. You will prepare the following prompts:

  • Persona Prompt
    • Objective: Create a prompt that describes a fictional character’s personality, background, and situation
    • Final Form: A detailed description of the persona
    • ChatGPT Response: Generate a story or dialogue involving the persona
    • Student Reflection: Evaluate the effectiveness of the description in guiding the AI’s response

    • Student Reflection: Reflect on the correlation between the description and the generated image

Students will submit their prompts, ChatGPT responses, and reflections in their GenAI Journal by the submission schedule. I will evaluate the clarity and creativity of the prompts, relevance, depth of the ChatGPT responses, insightfulness and thoughtfulness of the reflections, and overall presentation and organization of the GenAI Journal when assessing your  Journals.

Case Simulation

You will complete this deliverable by posting your memo to the appropriate channel in Teams.

We will complete two case simulations this semester. Links to the materials related to each case simulation are in the Schedule. Each case simulation requires two phases.

The first phase will require you to review materials in the text. You will also study a case that examines issues related to the simulation topic, focusing on facts, a statutory excerpt, and case law. Based on your knowledge of the particular area of law, you can compose a neutral memorandum (not to exceed 750 words) that outlines each legal issue with a short explanation of the applicable legal rules or doctrine. The sources of law for this memorandum are the text’s chapter on the area of law and any applicable statutory and case law. Your perspective is not that of an advocate. Instead, your analysis is as objective as possible in spotting any potential issues that could arise in the case and opine as to the likelihood of success on each point. You will complete this phase of the assignment individually. Be sure to carefully review the materials included in Writing on a Digital Platform and Writing and ResearchNever post a Word, Google Doc, or pdf.

During the second phase, you will prepare for an in-class Q & A discussion of the issues presented by the materials included in the first phase. You will be assigned to a team that will advocate for one side or the other during the discussion.

I will evaluate the following factors when I assess your contributions to the simulations:
  • Phase 1: Assessment will be based on the clarity of your writing, spelling and grammar, document appearance and satisfaction of form requirements, articulation of all potential issues presented, and the quality and depth of analysis. You will complete Phase 1 individually. Your issues memorandum should reflect a thoughtful, substantive, and well-reasoned summary and
  • Phase 2: Assessment will be based on your mastery of the issues under consideration, contribution to the preparatory work of your team, and participation in the give and take of the in-class discussion.

AT Project

You will complete this deliverable by developing your AT Project using Adobe Express, Adobe Portfolio, and your Teams Project channel.

The project aims to develop an in-depth understanding of information privacy by creating a collaborative multimedia project focusing on legal, ethical, and various interdisciplinary perspectives.

Much of your work in this course will be as part of a small project team. Teams will be formed based on a mix of interests and skills. Your work on that project team will focus on developing an analysis that examines the implications of an area of information privacy. Of course, I expect you will address the ethical issues that arise. Each team will develop and report their AT Project using Adobe Express to create the digital artifacts incorporated into your AT Project. You will use Adobe Portfolio to build your AT Project over the semester progressively. Each team must use its Teams project channel for all brainstorming, communication, file sharing, etc., related to the AT Project. Each team will be responsible for preparing and posting progress and content updates to their project channel in Teams as described in the schedule. Teams will provide full transparency as the project development process progresses. In other words, everyone involved in the course with access to our Teams workspace will have the opportunity to review and comment on the progress of each team’s project.

You will join a project team that will be responsible for the management of all aspects of the development of your AT Project:
  • Your AT Project will feature a multimedia production documentary in which a storyteller (your team) combines photos, videos, and audio with interviews, narration, text, and graphics to deliver a message, invoke an emotional response, and suggest action. You are encouraged to include diverse perspectives, especially from those significantly impacted by information privacy issues.
  • Your AT Project will examine not just the legal aspects of information privacy but also the cultural, economic, ethical, personal, political, social, and regulatory perspectives, present and future, of the area you have chosen. You will develop these sections as the semester progresses. The calendar and course schedule will guide submission dates and deadlines.
  • Prepare and share your analysis using Adobe Express to develop project-specific artifacts and Adobe Portfolio to share your AT Project. This allows your classmates to prepare thoroughly for our AT Project discussions.
  • Relate AT Projects to current information privacy issues.
  • Active participation in the scheduled discussion of all AT Projects.

You will use your AT Project channel to collaborate with your team and memorialize your discussions and supporting materials, including, for example, web sources, documents, and multimedia content for each case. Be sure to carefully review the materials included in Writing on a Digital Platform and Writing and Research.

Your AT Project will include, but not be limited to, the following sections (submission deadlines in the Schedule):

Phase 1 | Preliminary Evaluation (post to AT Project channel)
  • Identify and briefly discuss two different areas of information privacy and
  • Outline key issues and adjacent domains for each area and
  • Submit a report (500-word maximum) per area to your AT Project channel
  • Assessment will be based on clarity, relevance, and depth of preliminary analysis
  • Approval of one of your AT Project areas of focus will be posted to your project channel
Phase 2 | Status Report and Updates (post to AT Project channel)
  • Provide a progress assessment of your AT Project and
  • Include challenges faced and how they were addressed
Phase 3 | Final AT Project (post to AT Project channel)
The AT Project must incorporate, but not be limited to:
  • A multimedia documentary that incorporates a diverse range of perspectives and disciplines and includes
  • An executive summary and
  • An introduction to the documentary and
  • A description including a review of the domain being evaluated that describes the nature and scope of your project, an in-depth review including the significance of each domain, the developing trends related to those domains, the stakeholders, industries, and markets impacted, the opportunities for innovation that have or might arise and
  • Emphasize ethical implications in your analysis and
  • Recommendations for changes to the information privacy legal and regulatory environment and
  • A conclusion that includes your strategy for leveraging your personal and professional learnings and discusses the significance of the same and
  • A source list with hyperlinks to all references and
Phase 4 | AT Project Discussions
All teams will facilitate and participate in an integrated discussion of the AT Projects during our Week 16 class meetings. Each AT Project Team will select a Team Lead for each Monday and Wednesday sessions; the Teams Leads will facilitate an integrated discussion of the AT Projects in their respective sessions. Assessment will be based on the requirements described in Writing and Research and Writing on a Digital Platform. I will also evaluate the depth of content, interdisciplinary approach, ethical considerations, and multimedia integration, as well as your individual contributions to your team, level of engagement, clarity of writing, spelling and grammar, appearance and satisfaction of form requirements, articulation of all potential issues presented, and quality and depth of analysis.

Grading

The following weights will be assigned to each component of your final grade:
