As educators we’re faced with copyright issues on a daily basis.
Whether it’s an image selection for a lecture or debating on whether or not to copy a print source for a handout, understanding copyright informs how we teach.
Join Elizabeth Brown, director of assessment and scholarly communications, and Aleshia Huber, engineering librarian, for answers and discussion on copyright as it pertains to lectures, in-class materials, Blackboard, course reserves and web or social media resources.
