Intellectual Property and Copyright Policy
To support principals in introducing the policy to their staff, conversation cards have been developed to promote behaviour consistent with the policy. These cards can be used in a workshop format or during team meetings to prompt discussion about what a good practice response to various scenarios might look like.
The conversation cards include a general facilitator guide. Below is an example of one way the cards could be used to run a 30-minute activity.
- — practical copyright examples for schools covering a wide range of topics such as, copying for exams, YouTube, using images from the internet and copying sheet music.
- — quick answers to common copyright questions asked by school and technical and further education (TAFE) teachers.
- — information for teachers who create or compile resources for students, including how to attribute other creators
- — warning notices schools must display near photocopiers, printers, scanners and devices used by students to copy content.
