Description of Proposal

This train-the-trainer workshop offers graduate students a deeper understanding of copyright law and how it relates to their works and the works of others.

Some takeaways are a high-value experience with in-person assistance, curriculum that can be used for similar workshops in the future, and fostering relationships between participants who will benefit by learning from each other.

This workshop will help attendees who deal with reproducing, creating, sharing, publishing, commissioning or digitizing content. The format includes both lecture and hands-on activities, covering copyright basics and relevant exceptions. This is an introductory session; no prior knowledge or experience is expected.
