Managing student behaviour – a guide for faculty staff
“Students are the responsibility of the University community.”
A new training program has been developed by the Office of Student Success, in consultation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, to guide faculty staff with managing student behaviour where it interferes with or interrupts the normal educational and business functions of the University.
Whilst the program was initially developed for the Faculty of Health Sciences, it is equally beneficial for all faculties and professional staff.
New staff, sessional teaching staff and current staff who wish to refresh their understanding of ACU’s policies and procedures are encouraged to complete this unit.
The program consists of an introduction and overview followed by six modules as follows:
1. Understanding behaviour of concern 2. Maintaining professional boundaries while responding to students 3. Understanding ACU policies 4. Understanding the role of an Educational Inclusion Plan (EIP) 5. Managing students at risk of self-harm/suicide through the Student Behaviour – Response Plan 6. Scenarios – applying knowledge to manage a range of student behaviour
