The CARL Open Education Working Group invites you to the fourth call  in this series of informal gatherings for individuals involved in open education (OE) in Canada (faculty, instructors, librarians, students, instructional designers, etc.). 

This month’s topic is Fair Dealing for Open Educational Resources – so why not take this opportunity to invite all your collaborators across campus (and beyond) to join us? 

Special guests Peter Jaszi (American University Washington College of Law), Prue Adler (American University Washington College of Law), and Carys Craig (York University), along with OE copyright specialists Mark Swartz (Queen’s University, CARL Visiting Program Officer for Copyright), and Graeme Slaght (University of Toronto) will get things started speaking about the recently released Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources and its application in the Canadian context.  Then we look forward to hearing how others on the call think fair dealing might be applied to OE at their institutions (that means you!).

Share what you think the benefits are of using fair dealing for OE on your campuses and beyond. Ask questions or just sit back and listen! While this month’s discussion will be primarily in English, bilingual moderators will be on hand to help ensure participants are able to contribute in the official language of their choice. 

Calls in this series take place on the third Wednesday of most months.  Settle in with your beverage of choice and prepare for some coast-to-coast sharing and networking.

If you can’t attend this meeting but would like to know about future OE CCCC events (and receive other Canadian OE news), please email Lauri Aesoph ( and ask to be added to the CanadaOER listserv.
