Register for online copyright and OER workshops for remote instruction

Copyright in the Virtual Classroom

Are you recording lectures for your students? Are you wondering how you can move some teaching materials or classroom activities online, such as in-class movie screenings? Do you upload readings or other materials into Canvas? All of these activities can implicate copyright.

In this workshop the SFU Copyright Office will explain how you can use copyright protected materials in remote teaching, and how to find materials with fewer restrictions such as Open Access and other openly-licensed works. We will explain your rights as the creator of your course materials.

Open Educational Resources (OER) for Remote Instruction

Are you looking for alternatives to expensive commercial textbooks for your online course this fall? Open educational resources (OER) are teaching and learning resources created with the intention of being freely available to users anywhere. Most are covered by open licenses that permit using, re-mixing, and sharing of content. Examples of OER include open textbooks, readings, multi-media files, software, games, assessment tools, and even entire courses. In this session, Teaching & Learning Librarian Hope Power will share information about where to find and how to use OER for remote instruction.

Note: Both workshops will also be recorded for later viewing (details to come).
