Copyright remix – Fair Dealing in Image Resources for a Digital Age

August 27, 2009

See the news below about the recent Ako Aotearoa grant  that Dr. Su Ballard, from the School of Art, Otago Polytechnic has been awarded. I’ll be working with Su on this over the year. This is a great step for New Zealand tertiary education resources.

Copyright remix – Fair Dealing in Image Resources for a Digital Age

Practical solutions for the use of the digital image in a diverse range of teaching and learning contexts that will be available to all educators in New Zealand

The southern hub is delighted to support this exciting project that investigates the use of the digital image and the associated delivery of software and copyright information in the tertiary classroom.

Dr Susan Ballard of Otago Polytechnic and her team will draw on scenarios from student work to review current practice as it applies to the digital image (both still and moving) on and offline, examine digital images within the nexus of copyright, privacy and IP and recommend steps for evaluation and host outcomes in a digital hub. This information will enable the development of an open online and accessible for all electronic database (d*hub) of information about the use of the digital image.

We wish Susan and her team well and look forward to May 2010 when we expect d*hub’to ‘go live’.

    Wow, let me know if I can be of any help. I imagine probably most in the initial ideas – pointing out issues and considerations from just another perspective. Congratulations.
