Introduction and methodology

Most of the teachers are also, sometimes without realising, authors. We have to create our lessons, contents and workbooks for our students. Then we have to distribute them, to our students, to the other teachers, or even to the public domain if we decide so.

However, we have to be careful, especially if we decided to reutilise resources from other authors. Can we do it? How does the copyright exactly work? To what extent can we use theses contents?

In this session, we are going to explore the concepts of copyright and licensing to make sure that our content is well protected.

This session is the most theoretical of all, and probably the most boring. A good way to present it is to make a quiz (for example with Kahoot! or Quizizz) and progress through the content while the learners assess their own knowledge about the topic.
