Professor Stern is a professor of Computer Science at UTH Zurich. He has been teaching units on anonymity in all of his undergraduate courses for many years.
How the audience will be involved:
We will frequently call on the audience to answer questions about how anonymity is currently taught at their schools and whether the ideas we suggest would be appropriate for various courses at their schools. We will also divide the audience into groups of 10 for about 30 minutes of brainstorming in the middle of the workshop.
Most college students are
used to filling out forms and providing their identity everywhere they
go. They are often unaware that it is not only possible, but also
easy, to be anonymous in many situations. We will discuss ways in
which units on anonymity can be added to the curriculum in computer
science, philosophy, political science, and other college courses. We
will also discuss outlines of interdisciplinary courses on anonymity
that colleges might offer. We will ask participants to tell us about
how these ideas would likely work at each of their
We will also divide the participants into groups of 10 for a 30-minute brainstorming session about how anonymity units might be added to other courses. At the end of the brainstorming session, a representative of each group will report the most interesting ideas of their group to everyone.
