Policy on recording of lectures

Policy on recording of lectures
Students must seek prior approval from the lecturer before using any recording
devices in class. Typically, permission will be granted only to students registered
with the Disability Office. Recordings of lectures are for personal study only and not
for distribution to others. In order to respect the right to privacy of students, the
lecturer should inform the student body that the lecture is being recorded.
Occasionally, students will not be permitted to record lectures when the lecturer
knows that sensitive or personal issues may be discussed (examples could include
teaching in the areas of abnormal psychology; counselling skills; communication and
group work skills; child protection). The decision to allow or restrict recording will be
at the lecturer’s discretion.
