The Writing & Learning Centre at the Ontario College of Art & Design is
looking at instituting a confidentiality policy specific to our Centre.
We are hoping that our confidentiality policy will address the following
--student confidentiality with respect to the records we keep on the content
of one-on-one appointments with students during writing/learning skills
tutoring. These records are solely for the tutors as a way for them to keep
track of the progress of the student (and tutor) in the one-on-one sessions.
The records also include information on when the student came for tutoring,
name, student ID, etc.
--student confidentiality with respect to the personal information that
tutors gather through conversing with students in a one-on-one context.
MY QUESTION FOR WRITING & LEARNING CENTRE ADMINISTRATORS: Does your writing
centre have a confidentiality policy? Is it different from your
institution's policy on student records and therefore specially tailored to
the needs of your centre? Can I have a look at your policy and where can I
Many, many thanks for helping me out! Best, C.
