    Copyright Education, Copyright Literacy & Information Literaracy
    (2017-06-30) Winter, Christina; Doerksen, Brad; Langrell, Kate; Maddison, Tasha
    This presentation will provide an overview of collaborative copyright education programs in jurisdictions outside of Canada. This will lead into a larger discussion about whether a similar approach would be viable in Canada. The session will also focus on copyright literacy, information literacy, and copyright. Our primary goal is to start a conversation about this topic and gauge the level of interest in engaging in collaborative projects.

    How to be a Copyright Officer: Practical Tips and Reflections from Canada's Oldest Living Copyright Officer
    (2017-06-30) Simmons, Nancy
    People who take on the role of copyright officer or have that role assigned to them are faced with the problem of applying copyright law in practical, everyday educational settings, often without the benefit of legal training. Memorial University’s Copyright Office has grown from one person assigned to deal with copyright issues in 1989, to a two-person section that manages copyright for hundreds of on-campus and online courses. The session will offer some tips and suggestions for best practices in the day-to-day operations and the promotion of copyright education at Memorial, which has the longest established copyright office among Canadian postsecondary institutions.

    Teaching an Invisible Subject: Educating Instructors about Copyright
    (2017-06-30) Zerkee, Jennifer
    This session will share results of the presenter’s Canada-wide survey of university copyright administrators, which explored the following research questions: How are copyright officers, copyright librarians, and other copyright administrators reaching instructors with information about copyright and how it affects their teaching? What are the most common methods of educating instructors, and how are these opportunities advertised? How effective do copyright educators feel their instructional methods are at giving instructors the information they need to find, use, and create teaching materials confidently? Many respondents feel, like the presenter, that they are not reaching enough faculty with copyright information. While no one has a perfect solution, many are starting to plan education more strategically, reaching out to faculty through their departments and working with deans or provosts to lend copyright messaging more weight.
