Course Description

This is the Privacy, Access, and Information Management certificate's culminating course in which students will apply the principles of privacy and access to a project focused on an emerging technology within a particular sector. Emphasis will be placed on topics previously covered in the required courses such as privacy by design, established professional privacy and access practices, the impact of technology, and the role of stakeholder engagement and organizational values.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis. Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.


This is a capstone course and therefore can only be taken after students have successfully completed their first five courses in the Privacy, Access, and Information Management certificate (CLAW401, CZIT427, CZLW327, 2 Electives). Students must request department consent by emailing ce@torontomu.ca for permission to enroll in this course. *This course is currently offered in the Winter semester only.
