Educating students in terms of what constitutes a valid consent is important, but it is also important to support the victim, ensuring that they are aware of resources. Respect the space of others as well as their wishes.

I found it interesting as to how much flexibility that schools  have in terms of grievance procedures and investigations.

Every instution should have a designated Title IX coordinator who is responsible for conducting training so that all campus employees and students are aware of their rights. The coordinator should also conduct climate surveys of the campus.  All employees and student should know who they are able to report violations to and what resources are available to them.



I have recieved a lot of training in the past regarding sexual assualt prevention, discrimination, and sexual harrassement.  I am appreciative of the different policies, laws, and acts that are in place to protect students on compuses as well.  I can remember when there wasn't much of anything to protect students who were affected by various inappropriate acts on campuses.  Students have the right to obtain an education without being judged based on their race, gender, orientation, or having their personal space violated.


Outside of HIPAA, all of the acts I am fairly inexperienced with.  Knowing that FERPA has some strict guidelines on protecting confidentiality, it is interesting that there are other guidelines that can override the stringency of FERPA.


Understanding FERPA guidelines is a challenge. Training is necessary to prevent violations and broken relationships from a lack of trust.


I found it interesting that a student's SSN is considered non directory information and is not considered a violation if released.  At the same time, a parent has to have a consent of release from their student (child) to receive access to their records.


FERPA training provided clarity on who is allowed to have access to student records versus whoom access should not be granted to. This is similar to the HIPAA rules that are in place for health care.  As with all areas of maintaining confidentiality, access requires the evaluation of a "need to know."


Courses at ECPI are accelerated; therefore, it is crutual that goals and objectives are clear and concise.  This helps students understand what is expected of them  However, allowing and encouraging them to think outside of the box would assist them with their learning. Students are then able to merge their experience and learned concepts to help them retain what they have learned.  Nemonics are also great tools to help commit a difficult concept to memory.

This section focuses more on being personable.  Students need to know that you are human.  One way of doing so is by telling a story.  Also, as an instructor, if you prepared the lecture appropriately and dilvered the message just as effectively and your students didn't perform as well as you expected; you shouldn't be too hard on yourself.  Givng yourself some praise.
