THE ASSIGNMENT

Write a 1500 words reflective report about the App WalkThrough Method for analysing contact tracing or Covid passport apps, consisting of the following:

1. A description of your actions in the five stages of App analysis and a reflection on what each stage allowed you to see, and which issues or challenges arose in the process (approximately 1000 words). The stages are:

  • Analysing media coverage
  • Analysing the app’s information in any related public information campaigns and in the app stores such as Google Play or Apple App Store
  • Analysing the App’s Terms and Conditions
  • Analysing the installation process (including permissions) and actual use
  • Analysing removal/deletion

2. A reflection on what you learned about the relations between public health and surveillance. How can the analysis of contact tracing or Covid passport apps help us understand these relations? What are the advantages and the limitations of the “App WalkThrough” method in doing so? (approximately 500 words)

Your reflective report should be informed by the taught materials, the class discussions, as well as your own work applying the App WalkThrough method. In terms of references, you are required to draw on the core readings listed in this Masterclass, plus at least three more academic sources. These may be peer-reviewed journal articles or academic books and e-books. News articles, textbooks and websites may also be used but they will NOT count as one of your three academic sources.
