Sexual Assault and Misconduct
Protecting Children Course Collection for Higher Ed
Part of Canopy Programs®
About This Course Collection
Educators have a responsibility to protect the well-being of minors. This course collection will help educators and adults learn how to recognize, prevent, and report sexual misconduct. It includes courses for educators and a short video for employees or volunteers that don’t work directly with children.
This course was designed for educators who work with minors. After consulting with industry experts, the course aims to help educators:
Identify what boundaries are
Differentiate between different types of boundaries
Recognize how boundaries differ from rules
Understand how a boundary crossing is different than a boundary violation
Stay vigilant when they sense their actions or a student's actions are approaching a boundary
Recognize the consequences for themselves and their students when boundaries are crossed
The course uses scenarios and interactive exercises to illustrate how easily educators can find themselves in a situation where boundaries are being approached and how they can safely navigate away from boundaries.
This course examines concrete ways to recognize, prevent, and report situations of sexual misconduct by educators. The learner will test their own decision-making skills through scenarios based on actual cases of abuse.
This course contains content that may be upsetting to learners.
