NRT Seminar: Using copyrighted photography and video
Oct 29 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Please join CASBBI for a conversation with Emilie Algenio (Open Educational Resources and Scholarly Communications Librarian, Mason) on using copyrighted photography and video in assignments and presentations.

Topic.

Photographs and videos, on the face of it, are freely available on the internet. It is very likely that they are also copyrighted. If this is the case, how can you reuse pictures and video clips for your Digital Story Assignment? Emilie Algenio, from the GMU Libraries, will lead the discussion and answer questions about this topic. Participants will learn about how copyrighted material works, and receive useful resources for getting started.

About the Speaker.

Emilie is the Open Educational Resources and Scholarly Communications Librarian for Mason Publishing Group. She oversees OER creation and adoption, and assists with copyright related to OER, online and classroom teaching, and MPG publications. Emilie’s role as an educator focuses on open access and publishing. She earned a Masters of Library Science from Simmons College, and completed Harvard University’s CopyrightX course.

HUDS Affinity Group: The Art of Saying No @ Zoom
Nov 18 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Historically Underserved Doctoral Students (HUDS) Affinity Group: The Art of Saying No

Faculty from underrepresented groups (e.g. Black, Latinx, Indigenous, bi or multiracial, Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, etc.) are often asked to do service activities that take a lot of time but do not count toward renewal, tenure or promotion. This is especially true for women professors. In this session, Dr. Supriya Baily (CEHD) and Dr. Gabrielle Tayac (CHSS) will discuss the art of saying no and how saying “no” can allow you to focus your time and energy on initiatives and activities that will have the most impact and matter to you the most.

Register here.

About HUDS:

HUDS provides a welcoming and safe space for students who don’t always feel reflected or supported on campus or have faced or experienced social, economic, and historical challenges. The mission of the group is to bring doctoral and MFA students together and promote a sense of community through resource and information sharing and access to mentorship and networks that positively impact educational and career outcomes. The group also serves to increase access to critical services based on unique identities or specific needs. Finally, the HUDS Affinity Group names and addresses systemic issues that hinder the likelihood of educational success of Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Indigenous, Biracial, Multiracial, Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, African students as well as working students with families, military and veteran students, and first-generation students. *This list is not exhaustive.
