Expected behaviour

In order to foster a positive and professional learning environment we encourage the following kinds of behaviours:

  • Use welcoming and inclusive language
  • Be respectful of different viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accept constructive criticism
  • Focus on what is best for the community
  • Show courtesy and respect towards other community members

Unacceptable behaviour

Examples of unacceptable behaviour include:

  • written or verbal comments which have the effect of excluding people on the basis of membership of any specific group
  • causing someone to fear for their safety; such as through stalking, following, or intimidation
  • violent threats or language directed against another person
  • the display of sexual or violent images
  • unwelcome sexual attention
  • sustained disruption of talks, events or communications
  • insults or put-downs
  • sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or exclusionary jokes
  • excessive swearing
  • incitement to violence, suicide, or self-harm
  • continuing to initiate interaction with someone after being asked to stop
  • publication of private communication without consent

Consequences of Unacceptable behaviour

If a participant engages in behaviour that violates this Code of Conduct, or that administrators consider otherwise unacceptable, the participant may be warned or may be asked to leave the platform.
