Copyright workshops for faculty

Published by Mark Bodnar

Copyright workshops for faculty are being offered at all three SFU campuses this spring.

These workshops will bring you up to date on recent copyright rulings by the courts and changes to the Canadian Copyright Act, both of which led to changes to SFU Copyright policies. These changes allow for a broader use of copyrighted materials for purposes of teaching. The University also has a centralized website for copyright related information ( http://copyright.sfu.ca ) and a single contact for copyright questions ( copy@sfu.ca ).

The workshops will cover the new copyright landscape in Canada and at SFU; new SFU policies including the Fair Dealing policy; the use of copyrighted materials in your teaching; and related copyright topics.  They will also offer an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about copyright.
