The First Amendment, Academic Freedom, and Your (Provocative) Teaching Techniques

Time:Tuesday, February 11, from 10:00 am - 11:15 am 

Location: LB 440A

Led by Kent Kauffman, J.D., Associate Professor of Business Law and CELT Teaching Fellow.

The pressure you might feel to keep your students interested (or awake), or to have something for your productivity report about a new and fascinating teaching technique you adopted can be both good and fraught with hazard. Risk-taking teaching is memorable and can help students learn and retain better. Occasionally, provocative statements might be a selection in an impactful teacher’s repertoire. But what if a student takes offense at what you do or say? How far do academic freedom and the First Amendment extend to faculty teaching techniques? And what has the AAUP said or done when faculty are sanctioned or fired for what they say or do in class? There are answers to those questions, and accepted legal standards that should give you confidence about your teaching activities -- or a reason to stop doing them. Click here to register

Faculty as Defendants or Plaintiffs: What if You Violate FERPA? What if You Sue a Student?

Time: Tuesday, March 24, 10:00 am - 11:15 am 

Location: LB 440A

Led by Kent Kauffman, J.D., Associate Professor of Business Law and CELT Teaching Fellow.

In this last session, Kent Kauffman will discuss two, separate legal issues facing faculty:  FERPA; and, faculty suing their students. Student privacy rights are so important that a federal law was created to ensure it. But understanding what is covered by FERPA and what legal consequences faculty might face for violating FERPA isn’t as simple as reading the statute, because that thing is nearly incomprehensible. And speaking of nearly incomprehensible, every now and then a professor sues a student. Pulled from the “man bites dog” files, these mostly defamation cases (thanks, Ratemyprofessor.com) shed light on what might be a fantasy for some faculty who, like Howard Beale fromNetwork, are as mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. Regardless of the propriety, it might be worth knowing what it takes to win such a case. Click here to register
