About this Event

The ACAP Industry & Alumni Team are excited to host Professor Margaret Anne Carter on Safer Internet Day to present our first event of 2021 on the Brisbane Campus, 'Cyberbullying - The Conundrum for Students Engaging Online.'

The rapid online expansion of the Internet means students at all stages of education are increasingly spending time engaging online. Supposedly educational possibilities are made richer by opportunities to share and create subject content, clarify concepts and enhance understandings through social media, enabling both individual and collaborative learning. It is important to acknowledge that engaging online has the potential to be fraught with challenges including exposure to cyberbullying. Thus, students need to be skilled when working online, so that their eLearning experiences are productive and harmonious. Join us on 'Safer Internet Day' for this session to explore practical processes and strategies for students in higher education to engage safely when working online.

  • Global use of the internet
  • Prevalence and risk
  • Definition of cyberbullying
