Uniting Stakeholders to Create Digital Identity Themes

Colleagues from Across the University of British Columbia Launch Digital Tattoo

While Frostburg State opted for an easy-to-use Tumblr page, the University of British Columbia (UBC) created a more extensive project called Digital Tattoo.

In 2007, staff at UBC discovered questionable content that students had posted online. To address the broader issue of digital citizenship, they convened a campus Advisory committee. Members included representatives from the student body, Student Development, the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology, and the UBC Library, among others.

The Advisory committee identified five key themes around which they organized resources: protect, connect, learn, publish, and work.
