National Copyright Seminar Series 2020

Copyright for Educators Webinars

Register Below


The rapid transition to remote and online learning during COVID 19 has led to a huge increase for copyright advice and copyright education requests from Australian schools and TAFEs. In response to the increased demand, the National Copyright Unit (NCU) is offering a series of free webinars to help teachers navigate copyright while teaching during these unprecedented times.

These free webinars are open to all Australian schools and TAFEs (excluding Victorian TAFEs) and are targeted to teachers and teacher-librarians/librarians. The webinar covers topics such as:

  • Basic introduction to copyright;
  • What schools and TAFEs are allowed to do under the various educational licences;
  • Free education use exceptions - flexible dealing, exam copying and disability access exceptions;
  • Guidelines for schools and TAFEs about teaching students online and remotely during COVID-19 and in the future, including special COVID-19 arrangements;
  • Using Netflix, YouTube and Audiobooks in class, including virtual classes;
  • Practical case studies and FAQs; and
  • Finding and using ‘Creative Commons’ licensed material and ‘Open Education Resources’.

If you would like to register for the webinars, please choose your preferred date and register via the hyperlinks below (there will be a limit of 100 people per webinar). Please note the webinars will differ for schools and TAFE, so please ensure that you choose the correct webinar type for your institution.
