The Copyright & IP Officer provides at least two copyright workshops at the Laucala Campus each semester as well as at various campuses during the year. These sessions give staff greater awareness of copyright as it affects them in providing educational resources for students, online or offline. Similar workshops are provided for students to raise awareness of Copyright and Intellectual Property.
The Copyright & IP Officer is also available to:
- provide workshops tailored to the specific concerns of staff in your department or school;
- attend staff meetings to talk about copyright;
- provide tutorials to students on copyright and IP issues.
To organise any of these sessions, contact the Copyright & IP Officer.
