Learn your rights & responsibilities - attend a Copyright for Instructors workshop!

Published by Mark Bodnar

Do you...

  • Upload readings or other materials into Canvas?
  • Include photosdiagrams or maps in your PowerPoint slides?
  • Use blogs or social media in your courses?
  • Use teaching materials you find online

All of these activities involve copyright.

Join SFU's Copyright Office at each campus, when we will explain SFU's policies and guidelines outlining how you can use copyright protected materials in your courses (in-person and in Canvas), and how to find materials with fewer restrictions such as Open Access publications and materials without copyright protection. We will also explain your rights as the creator of your course materials as well as the Copyright Office's services.
