Scholarship Opens, Copyright Walks In: Copyright Support for Open, Multimodal Assignments

Tuesday, Oct 20, 2020

12:00pm – 1:00pm

Presented by Maryam Fakouri
Open assignments ask students to deliver messages in multimodal ways-they might create a video response a text or an infographic displaying research outcomes. Because multimodal projects intersect with teaching, scholarship, law, technology, and campus policies, they are where copyright librarians should be. During this interactive presentation, attendees will:

  1. Identify legal issues in multimodal projects in order to work with classes. These include copyright ownership and protections, students’ rights, and using copyright-protected works.
  2. Compare multimodal projects in order to prepare for assignments with varying levels of complexity.
  3. Situate themselves in order to teach diverse stakeholders about copyright.
