12:00 PM - 4:00 PM OLC: Introduction to Copyright and Fair Use


Copyright infringement lawsuits against institutions of higher education are not hypothetical: numerous universities around the country have been named in lawsuits alleging various types of infringements involving everything from posting articles and book chapters to e-reserves, course web sites, or learning management systems to streaming video and digitizing orphan works. In this workshop, you will learn how to avoid copyright infringement through application of Six Rules for Course Design as well as Fair Use guidelines.
 

While there are complexities to copyright and fair use, this workshop distills them into Six Rules for Course Design. Recent court decisions provide a measure of clarity to the parameters of fair use. The transformative use doctrine has taken on greater significance for educators relying on fair use. The growing body of Best Practices in Fair Use provides useful guidance for lawfully utilizing a wide range of resources.

This workshop was developed for faculty members, instructional designers and online program administrators.

This is a synchronous workshop.

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM TLTC- Empowering underrepresented student to enhance retention: Language, psychology & service needs

The workshop aims to use constructive language to define the general demographics and characteristics of underrepresented populations in post-secondary education and encourage a move away from language that has intentional or unintentional negative connotations.  The use of language and the assignment of labels to define and categorize underrepresented populations have proven to have a psychological impact on the perceived sense of self worth, belonging, academic potential, etc.  By providing a general understanding of the demographics and characteristics of underrepresented populations, the workshop will then address how best to “customize” support services for underrepresented populations that address their social and academic needs to enhance retention in post-secondary education.   

This workshop is part of the inclusion and diversity workshop series sponsored in part by the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center, the Office of Inclusion and Diversity and The Graduate School. Participants who attend at least four workshops (there will be additional offerings in the spring semester), complete a short pre-workshop reading and write a short reflection are eligible for a letter of completion from the TLTC and either the Office of Diversity and Inclusion or The Graduate School.  For more information, please contact TLTC staff (tltc@umd.edu).  Readings will be emailed to registered participants a few days prior to the workshop and the reflections will be posted at our inclusion and diversity workshop blog (http://blog.umd.edu/cteinclusion).  Participants may use a pseudonym for posting reflections, but we ask that you identify yourself to TLTC staff for keeping track of your workshop completion purposes.
