Balancing Fair Use and Student Access in Selecting Course Texts: A Workshop for Instructors

May 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm  |  Humanities 2, Room 259



About the workshop: Understanding how to balance equitable access to course texts with our ethical and legal responsibility to uphold the values of intellectual property can often be challenging. This workshop will help faculty navigate the complexities of copyright and fair use and focus on best practices and resources for choosing course texts for our Humanities classrooms. Faculty will come away with a better understanding of how to protect themselves while at the same time lowering textbook cost for their students.

All faculty instructors (Senate and non-Senate) are strongly encouraged to attend this workshop. Graduate student teaching fellows and associate-ins are also welcome to attend.

Workshop activities will be facilitated by Phillip Longo, Lecturer in the Writing Program, and Annette Marines, Arts and Humanities Librarian at McHenry Library.

Lunch will be served
