This is a course for educators who want to learn about copyright, open content material and licensing. It focuses on the Australian jurisdiction. P2PU offers similar courses for other jurisdictions, so check if there is one for yours. Educators who are not in Australia are free to sign-up as well, but the examples and legal details will focus on Australian law.
The course is taught around practical case studies faced by teachers when using copyright material in their day to day teaching and educational instruction. By answering the case scenarios and drafting and discussing the answers in groups, the participants learn:
* what types of material copyright protects?
* what exceptions can be used by teachers and students?
* what statutory licence schemes and voluntary licence schemes apply to Australian educational institutions?
The goals of this course are:
1. to help you identify copyright issues in education and give you a firm grounding in copyright, exceptions and licensing
2 to get you thinking, writing and conversing about how to use copyright exceptions and licences to enable education.
