About the course
This course will explore the main copyright issues related to lawfully accessing, using and producing audiovisual works in educational settings. Primarily aimed at teachers, students, academics, researchers, librarians, and other people dealing with audiovisual works in education, this course will help attendees understand the conditions under which audiovisual works can be used lawfully for educational purposes; and how mash ups and other derivative works can be created and exploited within and beyond educational settings. In particular, the course will address the challenges posed by copyright law in relation to moving to online teaching.
What areas will the course cover?
Participants will gain a good understanding of the basic principles underlying UK copyright law, including protection criteria, protected subject matter, economic and moral rights, authorship and ownership, and lawful reuse, among others. Participants will also learn about the copyright exceptions that specifically apply in educational settings, as well as those which allow everyone to creatively reuse existing materials. Participants will be provided with a suite of open access educational resources that they will be able to use in their own copyright training. In general, by the end of the course participants will be able to make more informed decisions around the copyright issues they face.
