Are you an educator revising your course or curriculum? Are you a researcher, preparing to publish, or heavily involved in academia? If you answered yes, then this class is for you. Fair Use can be a daunting concept and can many times fall by the wayside. In this class, we will review some typical scenarios educators and researchers encounter and how you can determine if your use of materials falls under the concept of “Fair Use.” Some suggested scenarios include:
1. Sharing copies of articles for journal clubs or institutional review with non-affiliated participants
2. Uploading vs linking of journal articles in Canvas for classes
3. Uploading book chapters into class management systems
4. Any other fair use scenarios you may encounter in your day to day work.
This is an active group discussion class, feel free to bring your own copyright situations/concerns. The class is scheduled from Noon-1pm, but the instructor will be available for an extra 30 minutes after class to continue discussion of any participant-related questions or topics.
