9.2.4 Educational Decorum
Because the primary purpose of Concordia University of Edmonton is education, it must be the responsibility of both students and instructors to facilitate the educational process.
Students have a responsibility to ensure that their behaviour in a laboratory or classroom situation is conducive to an effective learning environment. It is therefore essential that students refrain from any behaviour that might endanger themselves or disturb others in class.
Instructors have a responsibility, in addition to teaching, to establish an orderly classroom or laboratory setting. Included in this responsibility is the establishment and maintenance of specific standards of behaviour. Consequently, the instructor will need to assess the nature of any behaviour deemed disruptive and to use such remedial measures as are considered necessary to restore a healthy learning environment, up to and including the expulsion of a student or students from the classroom.
