Faculty Rights Tip: Advice on audio/video recordings without faculty consent

Q: Can students legally record audio or video in my classroom without my consent?

A: You have the right to be free from unauthorized recordings in the classroom. Instructors may be required to allow for recordings if they are connected to disability accommodations. Such recordings are for the accommodated student’s personal use only and may not be distributed or used for non-course related purposes. If you have questions or concerns, contact the disability resources center on your campus.
