22. Faculty Rights

22.6. Audio/Video Recorders in the Classroom

Because indiscriminate or unauthorized use of audio/video recorders, including the recording functions of cell phones, can be an infringement on the property rights of the teacher's classroom materials and a restriction on the freedom of expression of both students and teachers, the use of audio/video recording devices in the classroom by students without authorization from the teacher is prohibited. In addition, the participation of individual students in a class should not be included in a recording, without their permission. Recordings shall be used only for the student’s private study and information from those recordings will not be made available to persons not enrolled in the course.
