Organisation's Policies

Discussion created by James Higgins on Aug 15, 2016

Hi all, first discussion after joining Canvas!


I would love your help/advice/tips on the policies that our academy will need - particularly anything around safeguarding and data protection.


The academy is completely online. We offer a course in critical thinking to pupils aged 16-19 to help them boost their chances of going to their top-choice university. The course is an add-on and does not take the place of their main institution. The course also predominantly targets international students.


Teaching will be delivered in a variety of ways, including: live teaching; group discussions (which may not include the teacher and could be written or live video chats - obvious safeguarding issues); recorded videos; written tasks.


Any advice you have in the policies we may need considering the online delivery of the course in which we want to facilitate and encourage discussion between those of different nationality would be much appreciated.
