2) Lecture Capture

The current University of Bristol ‘Policy for Recording Education Activities’ is up for revision. The headline change for Bristol UCU is the proposed change to the opt-out part of the Policy where the “no questions asked” opt out has been removed.

In response to the proposed changes, we have set up a Bristol UCU ‘Should We Retain “No Questions Asked” Lecture Capture Opt Out?’:

Please let us know your views on the proposed Policy change. E-Ballot closes 10th May.
