Communicating Copyright to Your Students
Post-secondary educators are invited to join Taylor Stevens, Copyright Advisor at Mount Royal University, for this interactive session.
There is often anxiety around copyright matters. Educators may worry about copyright “policing,” procedures around sharing works, what is acceptable under their user rights, how students understand copyright, and more. There is a lot to evaluate, and it can be overwhelming. While these anxieties are understandable, there are ways to ease the stress and bring copyright confidence into the classroom.
The session will propose ways for educators to positively communicate copyright to students. It will touch on the recording of lectures, use of student work, copyright considerations when creating student assignments, and how to approach students as fellow creators and establish an environment of respect and trust.
