Candid cameras and free speech in the lecture theatre

Tony Bates, e-learning & distance education resources, Nov 19, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Tony Bates expresses concern about the way people grab and post videos online, citing examples of teachers being caught behaving badly, and pointing to cases where the video has caught behaviour out of context. What is needed, he writes, is something like a code of conduct describing ethical behaviour. Of the professors? Oh, no, no, no. Of the people posting video, of course. But you know, my remedy is to (a) remond professors - and other people - that they should stop behaving so badly, and (b) remind viewers of these videos to demonstrate at least a little discernment when they watch them. It's not TV; you don't have to accept everything you see as the gospel truth.
