Overview:
The issue of bullying continues to be a pressing concern for institutions of education at all levels. As the nation has experienced in recent years, this destructive behavior can sometimes have disastrous and horrific consequences. Organizations are addressing this issue in new ways and are clearly looking at societal ramifications. When bullying crosses over to the online world, however, in the form of forums, chats, blogs, and social media of all kinds, administrators, faculty, and staff face a much more daunting task demanding a new and different approach. How do you control cyberbullying when by virtue of its existence the behavior occurs in a virtual medium that you might not be witness to or even aware of?

This webinar will address the recent increase in bullying behavior that involves the use of technology and social media. We will review common types of cyberbully attacks and discuss the impact these have on students, faculty, staff, and the larger campus community. We will also discuss the different conduct approaches to this behavior, both on campus and off, and include a discussion of how cyberbullying occurs over a variety of technologies and platforms (Facebook, MySpace, Juicy Campus, text messaging, etc.). Several case studies related to cyberbullying will be discussed as well as ways to address these cases from conduct, legal, and counseling approaches. Participants will gain knowledge from specific examples of prevention programs on other campuses.

  • Learn the most common ways cyberbullying is used in technology and understand how anonymous communication can contribute to the problem
