Do you have your students blog, tweet or use Facebook as part of class? Are you worried about the impact of using social media combined with FERPA? I’m proposing a small session to talk about this, and to navigate potential issues. A set of good guidelines can be found on Cathy Davidson’s HASTAC blog. Kevin Smith, Duke University’s Director of Copyright and Scholarly Communication, suggested several steps faculty could take to mitigate potential FERPA complications here.
