If you are quick you might just grab yourself one of the last places at the second International Copyright-Literacy Event with Playful Opportunities for Practitioners and Scholars (trying saying that with a lolly in your mouth!). Chris and I are really excited about the line up of amazing speakers we have at the conference, coming from around the world to share their exciting ideas about creative ways to teach about copyright, open access and related areas of information literacy. We are delighted to be hosting the event at the University of Edinburgh and to have a keynote from the Open Education team’s Charlie Farley. Melissa Highton, the Director of the Learning, Teaching and Web services directorate will be opening the conference and the local team are working hard to ensure you have an enjoyable time.
This year in the evening we have a musical treat, with a house band made up of conference chairs, our keynote Simon Anderson and other delegates performing. There is still time for last minute additions to the bill so drop us a line if you wish to take part (copyright stand up comedy anyone)? The event will be taking place at Teviot Row House, which is Edinburgh’s Student Union building and the oldest student union building in the country.
The following day we are offering tours of St Cecilia’s Music Hall and Museum and we have a lunchtime meeting to discuss the emerging international copyright literacy community of practice. More details and booking for these events have been sent to delegates, but get in touch if you wish to book a place. Joining instructions will be going out to delegates later this week.
We look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh and have a safe journey and if you are looking to book a place at the conference then please do this immediately using the CILIP booking system.
