    Intellectual Property in Academia Workshop Series: Faculty Ownership and
    Plagiarism Online Workshops

    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

    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
    (http://www.utsystem.edu/OGC/IntellectualProperty/cprtindx.htm#top) and
    the Crash Course Tutorial. (http://www.lib.utsystem.edu/copyright/)

    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.

    Director and Chair of The Writing Program at Syracuse University, will
    moderate this workshop series. Rebecca Moore Howard
