PhD Up – Privacy and Your Thesis

Learn how to ensure your privacy and your subjects' privacy is protected in your thesis.

This workshop is designed to give you the knowledge and skills necessary to avoid risking the privacy of those you write about and of yourself. The results of a privacy breach can be quite damaging, and with the know-how gained in this 60-minute online workshop, you will know what to include in your thesis and what to leave out. 

This session outlines your legal obligations as a thesis author in relation to privacy. It is a joint presentation by staff from the RMIT University Library and the RMIT Privacy Office. 

Learning outcomes

  • Understand what privacy is 
  • Be familiar with the governance framework about privacy

  • How you can ensure the protection of your own privacy as well as that of others.
