This morning was the first webinar for Digital Literacies and Open Practice and I was delighted to be joined by my co-researcher and good friend Chris Morrison, who is the Copyright, Software Licensing and IS Policy Manager at the University of Kent. The recording and slides are now available. Chris recently published a chapter on copyright literacy in the book Digital Literacy Unpacked, edited by Jo Parker and Katharine Reedy and published by Facet Publishing.
Chris provided an excellent overview of what copyright literacy is, how it relates to digital literacy and open practice and highlighted some of the work we’ve done in this area. He highlighted the resources on the Copyright Literacy website as well as recommending the site Copyrightuser.org. Chris also answered questions from participants on a range of topics.
The next webinar will be on Thursday 8th November at 3.30pm and will be led by Lorna Campbell from the University of Edinburgh. I’ll post more about the next webinar soon.
