A code of conduct is a way of behaving in a specific community of people. It’s basically a set of “rules” which are full of respect and kindness.
This includes, but is not limited to, language, names or content that are:
• sexually explicit,
• contains swearing
• or is otherwise likely to cause offence.
Remember that you are in an inclusive learning environment shared with people who may be of different ages, nationalities, religions, cultures and backgrounds, and with different knowledge, ability and life experience to you.
Communicating online through text can lead to misunderstandings, so it is important to give other people the benefit of the doubt, and be kind in your interactions: sometimes it’s difficult to know or fully appreciate the situation of the person you’re talking to.
