- How might we assure that IFRC’s data practices and policies ‘do no harm’?
- How might we collect and hold data responsibly and ethically?
A suggested step by step process to achieve learning objectives.
- Begin with Data Monologues [SessionPlan 4] to surface experience amongst your participants.
- Run the Wheel of Data Misfortune [Exercise 4] to deepen awareness of data protection issues.
- Use The Need to Develop a Data Protection Framework [SlideDeck 10] to provide a case study and more information.
- Use the Data Simulation [SessionPlan 3] to simulate data-workflows using the Data Responsibility Scenario [Exercise 5].
- End with participants filling out the Data and Technology [Checklist 1] to determine an efficient and legitimate data workflow in their own projects.
- Distribute the Data Responsibility Policy [Handout 4] to give participants a template for creating a policy in their own organisation.

Short, discrete social learning experiences
- Wheel of Data Misfortune [Exercise 4]. An interactive way for groups to share responsible data stories.
- IDP Data Responsibility Scenario [Exercise 5]. Poses a problem set around an International NGO in Ethiopia that supports internationally displaced persons.
- PMER Data Simulation [Exercise 9]. Uses an example emergency to guide conversations on risks and data protection
Longer social learning experiences
- Data Simulation [SessionPlan 3]. To ‘simulate’ data workflows for various topics where data protection and responsibility will need to be applied.
- Data Monologues [SessionPlan 4]. Participants share a ‘data project lesson’ or ‘data fail’ to help talk about Responsible Data Use and Data Protection Guidelines.
Distilled information for use as standalone or parts of presentations
- Data and Technology Checklist [Checklist 1]. A basic checklist on technology and data processing in software projects to develop an efficient and legitimate data workflow.

- Data Hygiene [Checklist 3]. Types of data to consider when assessing data protection needs
For documentation of essential elements of the learning experience
