FACULTY/STAFF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Instructors may have concerns about copyright laws, but must allow for the student to utilize SAS-authorized adjustment until an agreement can be reached, provided that the student has shown this approved adjustment from the SAS office.
Instructors observe the right to ask students to not take notes/record certain class discussions, and must notify the whole class when this is occurring. Faculty may feel it is necessary to have these recordings destroyed after an appropriate length of time, i.e. after the final exam, and SAS is available to help with organizing an agreement between the student and the lecturer. SAS advises students to plan on destroying their recordings at the end of each term, and to have a documented agreement with the instructor whenever they wish to keep a recording beyond the end of the applicable term. Some time-limited exceptions apply, such as keeping recordings to precursor classes that may be needed for study in subsequent classes.
Instructors may ask to see the student’s Services and Consent Form or other appropriate documentation if it has not been produced by the student prior to the recording.
Should instructors or staff have concerns about the use of audio recording in lectures via laptops, microphones, tablets/phones, etc., please contact Student Accessibility Services at (603) 646-9900.
