Looking for new ideas to help your staff or users understand copyright?This session presents the Canadian version of Copyright the Card Game, originally created by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker in the UK and adapted by, a group of Canadian copyright educators that includes the presenters. The game is an open educational resource, designed to make learning about copyright fun, engaging and memorable. One desired outcome of this session is to gather feedback from non-copyright specialists on the Canadian content of the game in order to make adjustments and proceed with the development of a French version.

At the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
– Distinguish between and give examples of the main elements of Canadian copyright: Works, Usages, Licenses and Exceptions.
– Critically apply their understanding of copyright principles and licences to address common scenarios encountered in educational settings and other environments.
– Feel more confident about answering simple copyright questions and resolving potential copyright issues in their own use of information.
