I Can’t Believe it’s Not Icepops!

Icepops is the International Copyright-Literacy Event with Playful Opportunities for Practitioners and Scholars.

Following the success of Icepops 2018 and Icepops 2019 and the postponement of Icepops 2020 / 21 we decided to run an online event called I Can’t Believe it’s Not Icepops!

The event was held on Friday 25th June 2021 from 10.30am-3.30pm BST. The programme includes links to the presentations and recordings of the lightning talks. You can also access further details about speakers including their abstracts. Please note our World Cafe sessions were not recorded, but there are further resources available from World Cafe presenters.

The event was devised by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker and is run in conjunction with the CILIP Information Literacy Group and ALT Copyright and Online Learning SIG. The day will include a world café, lightning talks, and an evening social

Details about the previous conferences are available including the presentations and photos from 2018 and presentations and photos from 2019.

Icepops 2019 attendees

Icepops is aimed at copyright specialists and non-specialists, librarians, archivists, curators, learning technologists, educational developers, teachers, lecturers, publishers and creators involved in copyright education. The focus is on all levels of education from schools to higher education and continuing professional development. UK and international delegates are invited to share their experiences with colleagues.

The event was partly inspired by the IFLA one day seminar held in August 2017 on Models of Copyright Education in Information Literacy Programs.

What people have said about Icepops:

It was fun! (as well as informative and relevant to my work). I liked the fast pace which kept our interest throughout the day. All the presentations were interesting and food for thought.
The games hackathon was my fave session. It combined everything we learned about during ICEPOPS in an active, fun, social way. It was also placed right at the time of day when our attention might have lagged.
Thank you for all your work putting it together! I hope to stay in touch with people I met there. This is an important and growing community in the scholarly communications and information literacy worlds.
