Should I record live student presentations?
Student presentations should not be recorded unless this is strictly necessary for internal or external verification purposes and only shared with those that strictly require access for the purposes of marking or verification. See the Policy for the Recording and Digital Delivery of Teaching.
Where recording is necessary, students must be informed that recording is taking place and an explanation provided but you do not need to ask their permission to record.
