Copyright, Creative Commons and Affordable Learning

While the cost of textbooks continues to rise, the USG encourages its institutions to design and promote more low-cost/no-cost courses. However, the nebulous landscape of copyright restrictions leaves many faculty confused. What are the legal and most appropriate ways to choose free or low-cost materials? Which sources require permission to reproduce? Which ones are restriction free? This workshop will provide an overview of copyright restrictions, fair use, and the various creative-commons licenses that make course design and delivery more flexible and affordable.
