Chances are there’s a mix of content created by you and by others that you rely on for your teaching. Beyond textbooks, your course materials might include lecture notes and slides, illustrated graphics, journal articles, video clips, and readings you’ve collected over time. There’s a mistaken belief that if you are using content for instruction, copyright doesn’t matter because any educational use is protected. Such blanket permission doesn’t exist, but there are ways to exercise copyright awareness with your course materials to ensure you’re within legal parameters. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to think about copyright and course materials, how to assess fair use, and how you can leverage library resources and Course Reserves to stay out of legal limbo.
