The objective of this presentation is to challenge participants knowledge of FERPA by exploration of concepts and questions related to the law. The questions are intended to explore the more complex side of the law and allow participants to evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to understanding FERPA. The expected outcome is that participants will leave the session not only having learned more about student privacy laws, but also be better informed on what questions to ask in the future.
The presentation is constructed as a Q&A type activity. Questions are asked by the presenters, and the audience is prompted to provide answers. After each question, an important concept of FERPA is explained in more detail. The lecture is presented as a single session and will take the entire allotted time, with some time set aside for questions at the end.
