Effectively respond to major challenges negatively impacting the learning environment

Major disruptions include such behaviors as direct attacks on what another student wrote and insults or offensive remarks towards the instructor or other students, among others. Instructors should immediately reach out to the offending student to discuss their concerns. These behaviors also require a response to the full group and, if the disruption involved an insult or attack on another student, a follow up with that student is in order as well.
