Privacy is a contextual, subjective and essentially-contested concept; often it refers to freedom from some kind of intrusion or limits on how information about oneself is used or shared.
The following resources address privacy in some way:
- An Introduction to Software Engineering Ethics: a module including readings, assignments, case studies and classroom exercises.
- Moving Context Kit (McKit): a kit of worksheets and cards to help designers think through context-shifting scenarios (e.g. same device used in multiple contexts, such as a parent’s tablet being used for work, but also as movie and game device for kids on the go, or for reading ebooks).
- Privacy Engineering and Risk Management in Federal Systems (NISTIR 8062): a list of privacy engineering objectives and a privacy risk model from NIST.
- Privacy Impact Assessment Guidance: how to use Privacy Impact Assessments, a common decisional tool, from the Department of Homeland Security.

- Technology and Delegation Lab: syllabus for a 2017 graduate course on the interaction between technical design and values.
- Technology and Delegation Lab 2018: syllabus for a 2018 graduate course on the interaction between technical design and values.
- Tor and Privacy Self-Help Exercise: walkthrough of onion-routing and discussion of threat models and privacy self-help tools.
