Reboot Camp -- Intellectual Property Issues in Teaching with Technology

Description

***Please login to TrainTraq to register for upcoming sessions.

Innovations in instructional technology and digital media enable instructors and their students to easily find digital resources of interest; to combine, reuse, and remix those resources in creative new ways; and to publish those new digital works online.

Yet the ease of locating, copying, modifying, and sharing others’ works in the digital realm also raises questions about the ethical and legal dimensions of such pursuits. How can digital instructors and learners fully deploy new technologies within the limits of copyright and other legal considerations? What does our learning community need to know about intellectual property in the digital age? This presentation will examine the rights management issues involved in teaching and learning with technology.

Specific topics to be covered include:
  1. Rights of copyright holders to control their works in the online environment
  2. The means for controlling copyrighted content (Digital Rights Management technologies and other impediments to open access)
  3. Users’ rights in an educational setting (Fair Use and exceptions for classroom teaching)
  4. Creative Commons licenses and what they mean for creators and users
  5. Reliable resources to provide guidance
