Copyright advice and training
We provide general information and advice on copyright issues to the University community, as well as information sessions and workshops:
- for teaching and teaching support
- for researchers and creative practitioners (offered through the Research skills program)
- tailored to the specific concerns of staff in your department or school (including attendance at staff meetings)
- to your students as part of your lectures.
We send a regular Copyright Interest Group Newsletter to QUT staff via the Copyright Interest Group.
For copyright advice and to arrange training, contact the University Copyright Officer. Note that the University Copyright Officer is not able to give legal advice.
