Apologies for cross-posting.
Looking to develop a policy document and knowing how helpful these lists can be, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for dealing with misuse of social media, for example students using anonymous apps (like yikyak) for inappropriate behaviour likely to cause distress to others, both staff and students.
If you have a policy for social media use would you be willing to share? I’ve found some examples online but was wandering how any in-house approaches had been implemented?
While the advantages of social media for learning and teaching can be highlighted, and students asked to monitor and moderate inappropriate use, some hard core disruption by minorities can be difficult to manage.
How do other institutions make it clear inappropriate online behaviour has consequences? Happy to collate any responses and post them back to share with list members.
