Intellectual Property in Academia Workshop Series: Faculty Ownership and Plagiarism Online Workshops
ANNOUNCEMENT AND INVITATION
The Center for Intellectual Property at the University of Maryland University College is hosting an asynchronous online workshop series this fall that is of interest to faculty, university counsel, librarians, curricular design and information professionals. The first online workshop in the series will be on Faculty Ownership, August 6, 2001 to August 22, 2001. The second workshop will be Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism, from October 1, 2001 to October 19, 2001. Each workshop will last approximately three weeks, providing the participants with an in-depth understanding of two core intellectual property issues facing higher education in today's rapidly changing digital environment.
Faculty Ownership of Course Material in the Online Classroom
August 6, 2001 to August 22, 2001
Moderated by Georgia Harper, Esq.
One of the most controversial and timely topics facing colleges and universities today is the ownership and control of the scholarly materials created by faculty particularly those created in connection with Web-based courses. Many campuses across the country have either recently revised their policies or are in the process of studying this issue. When does a professor's creative work belong to the professor and when does it belong to the institution? How are the factors enunciated in CCNV v. Reid to be used in determining ownership? Are some factors more important than others? Can contract provisions alter the ownership question?
Georgia Harper, Esq. manages the Intellectual Property Section of The University of Texas System Office of General Counsel. She conducts local, state, regional and national workshops and seminars on copyright issues and has been an advisor to the Association of American Universities, the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges and the American Council on Education, as well as the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage in connection with its Copyright and Fair Use Town Meetings. Ms. Harper is the author of the frequently referenced online publications, The Copyright Crash Course (http://www.utsystem.edu/OGC/IntellectualProperty/cprtindx.htm#top) and the Crash Course Tutorial.

Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism in the Digital Environment
October 1, 2001 to October 19, 2001
Moderated by Rebecca Moore Howard, Ph.D.
Is the writer/reader relationship to text profoundly changed online? Can assignments be redesigned to avoid plagiarism in the online and face to face classroom? Are academic policies properly addressing campus plagiarism issues? This dynamic workshop series will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the plagiarism issues facing higher education today.
Rebecca Moore Howard, Associate Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Director and Chair of The Writing Program at Syracuse University, will moderate this workshop series. Rebecca Moore Howard (http://wrt-howard.syr.edu/) chairs and directs the Writing Program at Syracuse University and has written extensively on issues concerning plagiarism including, Standing in the Shadow of Giants: Plagiarists, Authors, Collaborators (1999); co-author of The Bedford Guide to Teaching Writing in the Disciplines (1995); coeditor of Coming of Age: The Advanced Writing Curriculum (2000); and author of a variety of chapters and articles about plagiarism, pedagogy, and composition theory.
