Copyright & Licensing Training

15th August 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

The practical applications in Higher Education of the most recent social or technical development (MOOCs, social media, digitisation and online collaboration etc.) or regulatory changes (RCUK & HEFCE OA policies, new copyright exceptions) has led to a new level of complexity vis-à-vis Open Access and Copyright compliance.

This training course is well-suited to those who require a basic understanding of copyright law, licensing and HE applications, and open educational resources. For those who already have some knowledge of copyright law and licensing, this course can serve as a refresher. Opportunities for questions and discussions will be ample.

Copyright and licensing training is an important way to build confidence, awareness, and staff skills, enabling the provision of teaching, research and information services in compliance with the law and open educational practices.

Eugen Stoica is a Scholarly Communications Officer for the Library and provides support for Intellectual Property Rights, bibliometrics, repository administration and e-theses.

Stephanie (Charlie) Farley is our Open Educational Resources (OER) Advisor for Educational Design and Engagement. She provides the OER service and the Open.Ed website.

If you’re interested in us running a tailored workshop for your department please get in touch.
