Looking for new ideas to increase copyright literacy on campus? This session will be the soft launch of the Canadian version of Copyright the Card Game, originally created by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker in the UK and adapted by the presenters, a group of Canadian copyright educators. The game is an open educational resource, designed to make learning about copyright fun, engaging and memorable. Teams compete to answer questions about common copyright scenarios, using cards in four categories: Works, Usages, Licenses and Exceptions. In this interactive session, the audience will be invited to play the game and afterwards participate in evaluative discussion. The primary goal is to gather feedback on the Canadianized content of the game in order to make adjustments and proceed with development of a French version.
