Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

A critical analysis of certain 'hot' issues in criminology and criminal justice. The topics covered change from term to term.

COURSE DETAILS:

This is a course on praxis (the marriage of theory and practice) in the development and implementation of restorative justice in primary, secondary and tertiary education.  It will include an exploration of a range of models of restorative justice in educational setting, and the distinctive features of restorative justice in education, as compared to a criminal and juvenile justice.  Topics will include: the needs and experiences of students, school staff and parents; the role of the school administration; a comparison of the foundational pedagogy, values, skills and practices and outcomes of selected schools and school districts throughout the world.  An exploration of these models will allow us to critically consider their potential for restoring safe, nurturing and engaging schools and communities.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
