Too often, as we scramble to get the highest quality material to online students at the lowest cost, we find ourselves using copyrighted material without a clear sense of whether we are allowed to use it, how much we are allowed to use, and how to cite it, leaving us wondering how much it really matters, and even asking, “Who’s going to catch me?”
In this session, we will demonstrate simple course changes that can help you model ethical uses of information and engage your students in critical reflection to craft them into digitally literate scholars.
We will help you merge information ethics into your disciplinary content with lessons that are bite-sized, yet meaningful. We’ll present the results of our findings from a redesigned online course that supports students’ digital literacy and ethical use of information through transparent use of copyrighted, open, and licensed materials. You will learn how to guide students as they consume, evaluate, and produce information, and discover practical methods for implementing these strategies in your own courses.
