Date: 04/11/2008
Event: Spring Faculty Symposium 2008 - Copy Rights Matter Date and Location: Friday, April 25 in Smith Memorial Ballroom Time: 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Have you ever had to ask for permission to use your own work? Or have you wondered if there is a way to create coursepacks that are more affordable for your students? Do you know if it is okay to show "The Great Gatsby" in class or post video clips from "Saving Private Ryan" to Blackboard?

The Portland State Copyright Working Group has organized an informative and provocative symposium on copyright and its effects on higher education. The speakers and breakout sessions will cover the topics that faculty at Portland State have asked about:

  • Author¬ís rights and Open Access publishing alternatives
  • Fair use (and the public domain)
  • Library resources (e-reserves, subscriptions, licenses, etc), photocopying, and coursepacks
  • Visual media and copyright
  • Using digital materials in Blackboard
  • Mechanisms to manage & share innovations, technology, educational materials created at PSU
