Engineering: Copyright for Administrators new Finished 11:00 - 12:00 Department of Engineering, Oatley Meeting Room 1 (Seminar Room)

Students frequently ask for lecture materials and to be made available to them through Camtools or Moodle to help them prepare for lectures, solve problems or revise at a later stage. What are the copyright implications of this?

This one-hour session will take you through legitimate ways to upload course materials and provide a case study of the issues encountered by an administrator in the Department when sorting out an existing Camtools site. The session will focus particularly on how we can use images within lecture materials online and provide tips and tricks for ensuring that uploaded materials comply with copyright requirements.

Editing your work new Finished 12:00 - 14:00 Department of Engineering, Lecture Room 4

This session is designed to provide tools and resources to help you edit your own writing. Its aim is practical – to provide participants with concrete methods for improving the quality of their writing as they move from first drafts to finished, professional-level, work.

The methods can also be applied to the editing of other people’s writing – for example, that of co-authors.

Besides that, the session will introduce other editing resources and discuss when and how to work with professional editors.
