Copyright Workshop

15.40 – Wednesday 5th July


Copyright the Card Game

This workshop will be a taster session based on Copyright the Card Game delivered by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker, the team behind the game’s development. The game has proved to be a valuable way of teaching librarians about copyright in an interactive and engaging way. During this workshop participants will play an abridged version of the game, as well as get ideas about how to use the resource in their own teaching and professional development.
