UC IP Mini-conference







Juggling on the Berlin Wall, Nov. 1989, by Yann Forget
2-5pm 11 June 2010.
University of Canberra (North Access)
Building 6, Level B, Room 45 (6B45)


The University of Canberra is currently reviewing its policies relating to intellectual property (IP) which will impact staff, students and the broader community. The Faculty of Health is hosting a free mini conference on IP as it affects academia.

The Faculty of Health is committed to the open sharing of ideas, information and practice. As part of its commitment to a caring and inclusive society, the Faculty is hosting a workshop to discuss the role of intellectual property in universities. It will hear from innovators in open sharing, access and commercialisation, and identify the fundamental characteristics of transparent intellectual property policies.

All are welcome to attend, please feel fee to sign-up on the wiki or email leighblackall@gmail.com or james.neill@canberra.edu.au.


The conference will also be ustreamed and recorded and can be followed using the hashtag #ucip

We gave a free workshop to the University of Canberra's Moodle Snippets event on how to find and use free content. Here's the video recording.


The sites we used were:

Thanks Sue Demoor at UC for organising the event, and making the recording.



After the seminar on openness in academia, James and I collaborated on developing the first in a series of workshops about open academia in practice: copyright options and how to find, use and contribute free media resources.

Over the weekend and a bit before, James and I had fun getting an outline together on Wikiversity and a nice colourful blog/website to front end it all.

8 people attended, all creating a Wikiversity account and learned about copyright options, how to use the Creative Commons Search engine, and how to bring findings back to their Wikiversity user page.

I attempted to Ustream to workshop out, but the computer lab we used would not allow a connection to Ustream. So I recorded with my phone, uploading when I was at a usable Internet connection (home). Recordings as follows:
Over the next few days we will be soliciting feedback in the form of comments on the workshop blog.

In terms of promoting the workshop, a broadcast email was sent out by the Teaching and Learning Centre sent out the week before, posts where made on Yammer, another broadcast email was sent on the day by James, and I sent direct invites to the Copyright office and the Library a few days before. Among the 8 lecturers who attended, it was wonderful to see Pat Tandy from the library, and for her to confirm that the Library is ready to support lecturers finding open educational resources to replace restrictive resources.

Unfortunately I haven't heard anything back from the Copyright Office. To date my efforts to engage people responsible for the Intellectual Property and Copyright Policies remain unanswered. James, myself and a growing number of people in the University need the Policy to address some perceived and real barriers staff may have in using and publishing free education and research materials - not to mention the opportunity UC has to be a leading institution in Australia in the development of progressive IP and Copyright policy.

James and Leigh will be running a workshop about the different copyright licensing options; and how to find, use and contribute free and open media resources, including images, slides, and audio/video.

Be in 7D4 (computer lab) at the University of Canberra from 1-3pm on Monday 29 March 2010
