If I am the author or creator of a work, can I use the work in a course pack?

If you own copyright then you have the authority to grant permission for the use of the work (in a course pack, handout etc.). As the author/creator of the work, you own copyright unless you assigned your copyright ownership to a publisher or any other party. If you transferred copyright to a publisher (or other party) you will need their permission to use the work, unless you copy within the limits of the fair dealing or educational exceptions.
