Do you often find yourself wondering whether you can use a certain image, video, article, or table in your teaching and publishing? Do you waiver between asking permission or begging for forgiveness later? Navigating copyright in education can feel daunting and fraught with pitfalls. The goal of the class is to empower you to confidently make copyright decisions that will help alleviate some of this anxiety. We will discuss the concept of fair use (an exception to copyright) and will review some typical scenarios educators and researchers encounter. Class topics include:
Your rights as a copyright holder
Sharing articles, book chapters or other instructional materials via Canvas or in-person
Using images and videos for presentations and instruction
Using tables and graphs in your manuscript
Other copyright scenarios you encounter in your day-to-day work.
This is an active discussion class, feel free to bring your own copyright situations/concerns. The class is scheduled for one hour, but the instructor will be available for an extra 30 minutes to continue discussion of any participant questions.
