Research has shown that students who are engaged in social networks have better grades, future plans, and higher graduation. Rather than asking students to put their phones away during class, we encourage you to incorporate social media into your classroom. Why?
But how can social be incorporated into the classroom effectively? There are many ways!
WKU offers best practices for faculty/staff interacting with students online in pages 29-30 of the Communication and Branding Manual. We hope that you will strive to make the WKU experience online a fun, inviting one.
WKU has a zero tolerance policy on all forms of harassment. Any inappropriate activity, bullying, or harassment by WKU students, faculty, or staff representatives must be reported to the WKU Campus Police and/or the Office of Student Conduct. Remember, if you see something, say something!
If you’d like more information on incorporating digital media in your classroom or are interested in having a Creative Web Services team member guest lecture your course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
