Copyright for Higher Education Professionals


6:00 pm

Event Type

Please note that this event is also advertised in the ‘Professional Qualilfications Support Workshops’ section of our events calendar.

cpd25’s programme of ten two-hour workshops was devised primarily to support CILIP Chartership and ACLIP candidates. However, many of the events in the programme are highly relevant to staff working as Library Assistants, Senior Library Assistants and so on. The events are aimed, therefore, at all levels of lirary staff – who may or may not be seeking Certification or Chartership, but who wish to further their professional skills and development.

Monique Ritchie is Brunel University’s Copyright and Digital Resources Officer, based in the Library’s Academic Support Team. Her role is university-wide, providing centralised support and training on all things copyright to staff and students, academic and admin staff and students, with a focus on the digital environment.

Aims and Objectives:

Using copyright material legally even for educational purposes can be complicated. For example, permission or a licence is always required when sharing copyright material with multiple users, and further permission is required for dissemination via electronic means – e-mail, u-Link, intranets.

This session aims to break down the myths surrounding the use of copyright content for educational purposes and outline permitted uses of copyright material in relation to both the analogue and digital environments.

Through a presentation and interactive scenario-based session, participants will:

· develop an understanding of the principles of copyright and statutory exceptions for educational purposes and private research/study

· gain knowledge information on permitted uses of copyright material by staff and students under educational copyright licensing

· develop an awareness of the complexity of managing copyright in a digital environment and individual and institutional liability for copyright infringement

Participants will also have the opportunity to pose questions on copyright issues in general and receive guidance on best practice and are encouraged to bring questions based on real life issues for discussion.

Places are available on the whole series (£140 for cpd25 members, £190 for external organisations) or individual events (£25 for cpd25, £45 otherwise).
