Fair Warning and Fair Use: Copyright and Plagiarism in the Digital Age

Changes in how education is provided, the easy availability of online resources, and the constant addition of new technologies create a confusing mixture of information on what copyright covers and why it matters to instructors. Digital learning and Open Educational Resources (OER) have increased the need for a clear understanding of what is free from copyright and what constitutes fair use. This webinar introduces instructors to the basics of copyright and how to apply copyright in a variety of classroom instructional settings, such as hybrid, blended, interactive, online, or face-to-face. A list of resources on copyright, digital learning, and copyright-free material is provided.

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Participants understand intellectual property, its history and importance, and how to implement good digital practices to protect themselves and their institutions.
  2. Participants are able to recognize copyrighted materials or those requiring attribution and those which are free to use without attribution or permission.
  3. Participants apply the methods they have learned to classroom settings (digital or face-to-face) and guide their students to practice good informational skills.
