‘Copyright the Card Game’ is an engaging, interactive approach to copyright education, developed by Jane Secker and Chris Morrison and available as an open educational resource. In this workshop Jane will introduce participants to the game as a creative way of learning and teaching others about key aspects of UK copyright law relevant to their work in Higher Education and other educational institutions.

Participants will develop an understanding of the basic principles of copyright legislation and work in teams to tackle a range of real world scenarios, exploring the relationships between legislation, licences and fair dealing exceptions when using copyright content for educational purposes.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how copyright works in practice in libraries and cultural / educational establishments
  • Become familiar with available licences and the legislative framework
  • Compare the roles of exceptions and licences through a series of real world scenarios
  • Reflect on the role of risk management in making decisions and developing institutional policy

This workshop is part of the cpd25 Aspects programme, aimed at library staff looking to acquire additional skills and knowledge or those working towards CILIP Chartership.
