Social Networking Policies for Teachers and Students

Gain a practical understanding of the policies surrounding the use of social networking sites for students and teachers.

Educational institutions face a hornet's nest of issues that stem from the use of social media by employees, institutions, and the facilitation of unsupervised communications between faculty and students through such medium. This topic will examine in detail the types of risks and exposure that are endemic to use of social medial platforms by institutions, officers, and employees, as well as how to properly regulate such communications without running afoul of First Amendment rights, collective bargaining rights and agreements, and how to prevent such systems compromising employee job performance and cyber-security of institutional systems and information. It will provide you with a practical understanding of the intersection between free speech and control of social media platforms, cyber-security issues raised from use of such platforms and how to effectively minimize legal exposure from employee and institution use of such platforms, while maintaining the flexibility, connectivity, and innovation that such platforms provide.
