This post is a reminder that there’s still time to stick with that new year’s resolution to share your creative and playful ways of teaching copyright. Yes, the Icepops 2019 call for contributions is still open until 4 February 2019, so make sure you get your proposals in before then.
Contributions are rolling in and plans are well underway for the event which takes place on 26 June 2019 at the University of Edinburgh. We will be building on the success of the 2018 event, expanding the popular word cafe ‘show and tell’ section and bringing the musical theme of the event into the evening social (more information to be revealed). We are looking at contributions around the following themes, but are happy to consider anything relating to copyright education and creativity:
- Universal Copyright Literacy: bridging the gaps between lawyers, IP teachers, specialists and copyright muggles
- Engaging and creative approaches to copyright education including using games, music and performance
- Copyright education as part of digital and information literacy initiatives
- Copyright education in the cultural heritage sector
- Teaching copyright as part of scholarly and open practices
Speakers qualify for a discounted rate of £100 to attend the conference (details here). Although accommodation isn’t included in the event fees we really hope some of you will be able to stay until the next day as we have some tours of St Cecilia’s Hall (Georgian concert hall) lined up for the following morning.
If you have any questions, drop us a line (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to seeing your contribution and then seeing you in person in Edinburgh in June.
