The fourth evaluation workshop of the DDP project, which was held virtually on both dates, took place on July 21st and 28th, 2021. The aim of this workshop was to evaluate the manageability and usability of the data protection module by the participating experts. The workshop was led by the Leibniz Institute for Human Development and Educational Information (DIPF), the German Youth Institute (DJI), the Center for Teacher Training and Educational Research at the University of Potsdam (ZeLB) and GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences.
The first of the two workshop days started with introducing the collaborative project “Domain Data Protocols for Empirical Educational Research” and the concept of Domain Data Protocols to the participants. This first introduction to the project was followed by a closer look at the module, which covers data protection aspects.
The second day of the workshop began with a round of feedback on the data protection module, which the researchers found to be very useful and helpful, but also noted that the module was experienced as very extensive and complex due to the large amount of information it contained. During the four-hour group discussion, the checklists and legal requirements related to the data protection module were further evaluated and the associated standards and use cases were discussed. These were experienced as very helpful and concrete support in the research process.
Overall, the participants were positive about the project and the implementation of the module so far and provided new ideas for the further development of the DDPs.
