Despite his membership of the Nazi Party, announced in his inaugral address in 1929, when he succeeded his teacher Husserl, he then went on to exclude Jewish faculty members, including Husserl, he remains a hugely influential thinker. Another idiosyncrasy was his secret affair with Hannah Ardent, a Jewish student 17 years his junior, who went on to be one of the most important political theorists of the 20th C.&nbsp;</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Despite this, his break with the Western tradition of metaphysics is what attracted him to the critical theory movement, through to post-structuralism, with his recentering or grounding of human experience in being, not the metaphysical systems of Western thought.</span></p></span><br class="Apple-interchange-newline" style="white-space: normal;" /></span></div><span id="docs-internal-guid-20d3826d-7fff-bf0b-39ae-0f7d42196266"><h3 dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 10pt;"><span face="Calibri, sans-serif" style="font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Dasein</span></h3><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 6pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">In his great work </span><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-style: italic; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Being and Time</span><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> (1927), Dasein is a being-in-the-world, not like the Cartesian ego, self or subject but within a process of being. Thinking and learning are just ways of being or engaging with the world. One must also react to and engage with the world. It follows that learning is a form of caring about (besorgen) the world, so not just thinking but interest in what is being learned. It is only if one cares that one learns, going forward to inquire and get involved with learning about the world. In this sense, he puts more emphasis on what is often called the affective side of learning.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">One is thrown forward in life, with what one wants to be, one’s future potentialities and abilities to be, drive one forward. Learners and teachers must be seen as being in the world, not subjects that have to learn about the world. One must interpret learners as first attuning through being attracted, vaguely interested or bored; then see language or discourse as the shared form of being; these lead towards goals in life that come through learning.</span></p><h3 dir="ltr" style="background-color: white; line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt; padding: 10pt 0pt 0pt;"><span face="Calibri, sans-serif" style="font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Teaching and learning</span></h3><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">In </span><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-style: italic; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">What is thinking?</span><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> (1954) teaching, learners and learning are seen within the context of deeper more authentic thinking. To teach or learn is to avoid the superficialities of ordinary thinking. He takes the case of a cabinet-maker apprentice, who more than just learns how to use the tools. One must find the essence of the process in the activities and the essence of the wood itself.&nbsp;</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">He takes this insight to reflect on the relationship between the teacher, learner and learning. In a wonderfully intense passage he explains why teaching is harder than learning, as the teacher must not be the presenter of knowledge, a didact or pedagogue, but let the learner learn. Teaching is an exalted matter and not to be confused with titles, such as Professor.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Learning is far more than basic accumulation of knowledge and practice, more than even doing. The learner must respond and relate to the deeper effects of the craft. Using a hammer ‘ready-to-hand’ does not involve consciousness in any rational sense, which may even hamper its use. It is a deeper engagement with the project.</span></p><h3 dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 10pt;"><span face="Calibri, sans-serif" style="font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Technology</span></h3><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">In a typically Hedeggerian analysis, there is far more to technology than any instrumental theory. Technology marks this era, as the last in metaphysical thinking, with technology replacing previous systems of belief. There is an ‘enframing’ with technology put into a ‘standing reserve’, in advance of consumption. In that respect it is similar to the Nietzschean analysis of the world having cleaved into the lived world and something metaphysically separate. He sees technology, as a system, like a metaphysical system, that distorts our thinking and actions. However, he avoids any trite dismissal or negativity around technology, as it is also a prelude to thinking more authentically.</span></p><h3 dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 10pt;"><span face="Calibri, sans-serif" style="font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Influence</span></h3><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; font-size: 12pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Heidegger (along with Nietzsche) are two huge existentialist influences on post-structuralists such as Foucault, Derrida and Lyotard. Derrida, in particular, rejects but builds on Heidegger for his deconstructive approach to texts. That is not to say that the influence was entirely fruitful. Hedegger’s rejection of the language of Western philosophy - the subject, object, act and content - for the language of being (Sein) which is prior to the oppositional systems of appearance and reality, also led to the fragmentation, invention and playfulness with language that took these theorists,&nbsp; not only further away from philosophy but also any semblance of relevance or usefulness for teachers and learners. The dissolution of human nature in favour of just being-in-the world or feelings has led to de-anchoring that leaves many stranded in personal resentment.</span></p><h3 dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 10pt;"><span face="Calibri, sans-serif" style="font-size: small;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;">Bibliography</span></span></h3><p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.2; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="background-color: white; color: #222222; font-family: Arial; font-size: 10pt; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-position: normal; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Heidegger, M., Macquarrie, J. and Robinson, E., 1962.

Government reveals plans for post-Brexit data regime https://panopticonblog.com/2021/09/17/government-reveals-plans-for-post-brexit-data-regime/ Panopticon urn:uuid:07afa7fe-429c-b1db-bde4-9a9e8fca9a2f Fri, 17 Sep 2021 10:37:41 +0100 In the last few days, the UK government has begun a public consultation on its plan to reform data protection legislation in the wake of Brexit entitled Data: A new direction. It says the aim is to create a more “pro-growth and pro-innovation” regime to achieve what the (now former) DCMS Secretary Oliver Dowden dubbed [&#8230;] <p>In the last few days, the UK government has begun a public consultation on its plan to reform data protection legislation in the wake of Brexit entitled <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1016395/Data_Reform_Consultation_Document__Accessible_.pdf"><em>Data: A new direction</em></a>. It says the aim is to create a more <em>“pro-growth and pro-innovation”</em> regime to achieve what the (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/people/nadine-dorries">now former</a>) DCMS Secretary Oliver Dowden dubbed a <em>“data dividend”</em> for the British economy.</p> <p>As regular Panopticon readers will know, the UK’s data protection regime has principally been driven by the EU framework – most recently in the form of the GDPR. Following the end of the Brexit transition period from January 2021, the GDPR (which during the UK’s membership of the EU had direct effect) was transposed into domestic law with minor changes. This means there is now the ‘EU GDPR’, in force across the 27 Member States, and the ‘UK GDPR’ which is applicable in the UK.</p> <p>Even before the UK GDPR came into force in January 2021, however, the government had stated its intention to diverge from EU data protection law as part of its National Data Strategy, at least to some extent. These proposals are the first concrete step in that direction.<span id="more-4089"></span></p> <p>The consultation addresses the proposals in five broad categories:</p> <ol> <li><strong><em>Using data for innovation</em></strong> – The governments wants to clarify the scope of the ‘legitimate interests’ ground of lawful processing under Article 6(1)(f) of the UK GDPR. The aim of this proposal is to avoid what the government considers is unnecessary over-reliance on the consent ground, which it says has led to <em>“consent fatigue”</em> among data subjects<em>.</em> Under the proposal, legislation would provide an exhaustive list of pre-approved legitimate interests for which businesses would not need to balance their interests in processing the data against the rights of the data subject. The proposed interests to which this would apply include <em>“using personal data for internal research and development purposes, or business innovation purposes aimed at improving services for customers”</em>, which would provide businesses with a relatively broadly framed basis for processing.<strong><em> </em></strong></li> </ol> <p>The consultation document also sets out plans in relation to AI, including the proposed removal of the human oversight requirement in solely automated decision-making (ADM) under Article 22 of the UK GDPR – perhaps in favour of a ‘legitimate interests’ test for the use of ADM.</p> <p>Another important area of reform concerns anonymisation. One proposal is to create a new test for determining when data will be regarded as anonymous which would take account of the actual risk of re-identification, reflecting the approach of the CJEU in <a href="https://curia.europa.eu/juris/document/document.jsf?docid=184668&amp;doclang=EN"><em>Breyer v Germany</em></a> C-582/14 (that the question of whether data is anonymous is relative to the mean available to the data controller to re-identify it).</p> <ol start="2"> <li><strong><em>Reducing administrative burdens on businesses</em></strong> – There are a raft of proposals in relation to red tape: overall, the government wants to shift away from formalistic ‘box-ticking’ approach. This reflects concerns from businesses that the balance under existing legislation is generally weighted too heavily in favour of data subjects, placing excessive burdens on companies. A theme underlying these plans is a desire to ensure the data protection regime helps rather than hinders the UK’s economic competitiveness.</li> </ol> <p>Proposals include scrapping the Article 30 record keeping requirements, removing the duty to carry out data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), and increasing the threshold for mandatory reporting of data breaches to the ICO to tackle <em>“over-reporting”.</em> In broad terms the plan is to replace the current accountability framework with a risk-based, substantive approach to privacy management.</p> <p>Notably, there are also proposals to permit companies to charge fees for dealing with subject access requests, to address the significant burden currently faced by businesses in that area. Views are also sought on extending the ‘soft opt in’ for use of personal data marketing purposes under the PECR.</p> <ol start="3"> <li><strong><em>Cross-border data transfers</em></strong> – The government hopes to support international data flows as part of its plans to bolster international trade. The consultation documents states that the government intends its future approach to adequacy decisions in respect of other jurisdiction’s data protection standards to be <em>“risk-based and focused on outcomes”</em> rather than on rigid textual comparisons of respective legislation. Under the proposals, the legislation would also clarify that foreign data protection regimes that afford only administrative (as opposed to judicial) redress will be acceptable. DCMS has <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-approach-to-international-data-transfers/international-data-transfers-building-trust-delivering-growth-and-firing-up-innovation">previously announced</a> that several new ‘adequacy partnerships’ are planned with priority countries, including with the US.</li> </ol> <ol start="4"> <li><strong><em>Use of data in public services</em></strong> – The key idea here is to pave the way for easier data sharing both among different public authorities as well as between public bodies and private companies that process personal data on their behalf – the benefits of which the government says have been highlighted during the Covid-19 pandemic. In particular, the government wants legislation to make clear that in such circumstances companies are able to rely on the lawful ground for processing under Article 6(1)(e) of the UK GDPR.</li> </ol> <ol start="5"> <li><strong><em>Reform of the Information Commissioner’s Office</em></strong> – The government proposes to introduce a new set of strategic objectives for the ICO. There would also be a new statutory duty on the ICO to have regard to economic growth, innovation and competition when discharging its functions, which reflects the thinking running through the reforms.</li> </ol> <p>A new governance model is also proposed, with an independent board and CEO, mirroring more closely the structure of other regulators such as the FCA and Ofcom. It is also clear that the government is keen to reduce the current burden on the ICO to investigate a high volume of comparatively low-level complaints – proposals in this regard include requiring complainants to attempt to resolve matters with the data controller before complaining to the ICO. According to the consultation document, no significant changes are planned to the scope of the ICO’s enforcement powers.</p> <p>As a final thought, while the consultation contains a large number of proposals, it is clear that the regime envisaged remains rooted in the familiar GDPR framework. That being said, discussion about divergence from the EU approach to data protection will inevitably raise questions about the durability of European Commission’s recently finalised <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_21_3183">adequacy decision</a> in respect of the UK’s post-Brexit arrangements. The UK government has a tightrope to walk, with pressure to achieve changes that satisfy the business community and enhances the UK’s ability to market itself as a global centre of innovation and growth competing with the need to avoid changes that put the government on a collision course with the EU.</p> <p>The consultation is open until 19 November 2021.</p> <p><a href="https://www.11kbw.com/barristers/katherine-taunton/"><em>Katherine Taunton</em></a></p> Invitation to Tender: Information and Digital Learning Module for library staff https://infolit.org.uk/invitation-to-tender-information-and-digital-learning-module-for-library-staff/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=invitation-to-tender-information-and-digital-learning-module-for-library-staff Information Literacy urn:uuid:a10536f3-aa50-ab7a-0047-3472cbe5a9d8 Fri, 17 Sep 2021 10:00:00 +0100 Libraries Connected invites information literacy professionals to submit proposals for training modules in information literacy, as defined by CILIP in 2018:  Information literacy is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgements about any information we find and use.
