CSD Department's Policy on Use of Electronic Personal Devices in the Classroom

Unless otherwise directed by the course instructor, it is the policy of the West Virginia University Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders that: 
  1. Cell phones should be silenced and put away during all class periods, and that students are not to leave class with the purpose of checking them.  
  2. While laptops and tablet computers may be permitted for purposes of note-taking, activities including (but not limited to) web browsing, texting, messaging, and any form of social networking are prohibited during class periods.  
  3. In addition to cell phones and computers, no technology, including (but not limited to) electronic calculators, portable media (mp3) players, smartphones, personal data assistants, and e-book readers, should be at or near students’ seats during any in-class test, quiz, or other form of learning assessment.  
  4. Students who require assistive technology must present documentation from Disability Services to the course instructor at the beginning of the semester.
