Misbehavior Online in Higher Education, Eds. Laura Wankel and Charles Wankel. Emerald Publishing Group, 2012.
As interaction in higher education among faculty, staff, students, and others becomes ever more digital, the welter of new online communication technologies have provided many unintentional opportunities for indiscipline and misconduct. As a result of this unfortunate increase in misbehavior, administrators and instructors in higher education are increasingly being called upon to remedy and forestall such actions.
Misbehavior Online in Higher Education is rich in contemporary case studies, analytical reports, and up-to-date research providing detailed overviews of various misbehavior, including: cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cyberslacking, and privacy invasion, hacking, cheating, teasing, and enlarged prejudicial attitudes. The development of approaches to addressing these problems is discussed with detailed useful actual examples. The book also provides an overview of emerging problematic behaviors and the development of new policies, programs, facilities, and technologies to tackle the behaviors of concern is explored.
