Gently Enforce Compliance with the Health and Safety Guidelines. If you notice that a student is not complying with health and safety measures, and circumstances allow for a constructive conversation, remind that individual of the guidelines and the reasons behind them. If a student is not wearing a face covering, for instance, provide them with one if you have spare masks or let them know where they can get one (masks should be available in designated rooms in each classroom building).
Use Available Resources to Deal with Non-Compliance. If a situation around non-compliance arises (students gathering in close proximity, for example) that jeopardizes health and safety, and you do not feel comfortable addressing the situation directly, please contact your DUS, DGS, program director, or chair/dean. You can also contact Duke’s anonymous Speak Up Program at (800) 826-8109 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), complete the Speak Up online form, or contact the Duke Office of Audit, Risk and Compliance.
See the Duke Registrar’s website for more information on the different instruction modes.
Intellectual Property Concerns
- Make sure recording is turned on before you begin each session.
- Remind your students that the session will be recorded and that their classmates will be able to review it. (Zoom will also ask for consent to be recorded.) For more information on protecting student privacy visit the Privacy page on ScholarWorks.
- Remind students they may not share recordings outside the class, nor should they record sessions without your permission. To do so violates Duke policies. Set guidelines and expectations clearly.
- If you schedule a Zoom session in Zoom and record to the cloud the link for the recording is only sent to you as the host. If you schedule the session through Sakai the recording is visible to those with access to the Sakai site.
- Breakout rooms in Zoom are not recorded without permission of the instructor.
- Direct your students to review this section on the Keep Learning website for further information.
