Implementing e-safety across an organisation



Management will need to ensure that e-responsibility considerations are integrated into all areas of practice, for example:


1. Management procedures


Is there a clear line-management structure with appropriate responsibilities and accountabilities for e-safety? Is there regular review and monitoring of the e-responsibility arrangements for the organisation?


2. Development and dissemination of policies and procedures


What is the process by which the policies and procedures are created and disseminated? Are learners and staff aware of and able to access and understand the policies and procedures relating to e-responsibility? What processes are in place to report on and monitor breaches of e-safety?


3. Integration into learning & teaching practice


How is e-responsibliity awareness embedded into practice? How do tutors make students aware of the e-responsibility factors affecting their current academic/practical work?


4. Staff recruitment and staff development


Staff development programmes should include e-responsibility issues, both from the point of view of the learners and of the staff as users of technology. Staff will need access to CPD opportunities.


5. Resources available - for staff and learners


What resources are made available for the use of staff and learners? Are these resources differentiated? Resources should raise awareness, offer opportunities for assessment and be adapted to learners ability to understand, they should be included in formal induction and information literacy, and integrated into the curriculum through schemes of work, pastoral contact, reporting processes and learner consultation and could refer to acceptable learner behaviour and staff classroom management.


6. Self assessment


E-responsibility issues need to be part of the criteria for a self assessment framework. How well is it being dealt with? How well is it being transmitted to staff and learners? What processes are in place to ensure that learners feel safe within the e-environment?


7. Integration into infrastructure and technical developments


How will innovative teaching be supported using present technology? What implications are there for the security of the network and data?
