If you are preparing resources for your teaching, from PowerPoint slides to online modules, chances are you’ll want to incorporate readings, images, video clips, problem sets, or other materials from different sources. This session will focus on the pragmatic elements of reuse, the essentials of copyright, and the basics of working with open educational resources that are licensed to allow revision and reuse. Such openly-licensed resources can impact teaching and learning through contextualization, time savings, and lowering student access barriers such as costs. Please bring your questions and join us in exploring UBC’s Copyright and Fair-Dealing guidelines and how copyright intersects with effective teaching practices.
