Social Media:  The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Thursday, April 17, 2014 from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM (CDT)

Social media has had a significant impact on our interaction with colleagues, students, and staff. This presentation will highlight the important ethical and professional considerations that should be part of a faculty member’s decision-making process.

Briefly highlighted will be:

    • The GOOD, enhanced and efficient communication;
    • The BAD, including misuse and risks; and
    • The UGLY which emphasizes potential legal and ethical breaches.

Elements of eprofessionalism policies will also be reviewed.
