Academic Board endorses the ACU Lecture Capture Policy
Published: Wednesday 21st December 2016
Approved by the Academic Board on 30 November 2016, the Lecture Capture Policy provides staff with guidance around the ACU requirement that, where possible, all lectures timetabled in lecture capture-enabled venues be recorded and made available to students on the relevant LEO unit sites. Ideally, lectures should be uploaded within 24 hours of the event.
It is anticipated that ACU’s endorsement of the recording of lectures will result in increased access to unit content, and therefore improved student learning outcomes.
Important aspects of recording lectures are also addressed in the Lecture Capture Policy, including guest lecturers, copyright and intellectual property, student recording of lectures, data retention and the non-recording of lectures in enabled facilities.
The policy is a Learning for Life initiative developed in conjunction with relevant stakeholders including Faculty Learning and Teaching Committees, Heads of School, University Learning and Teaching Committee, Information Technology, Legal Counsel and the Academic Registrar.
The policy recognises that there may be some circumstances where lecturers need to request to opt-out of the recording on lectures, including:
exceptional pedagogical, cultural or legal reasons
recording technology is not available
lecturer records the lectures using other methods as supported by the University.
