Dr. John Willinsky at the Digital Literacy Centre

This Friday, December 11, at 12:00 pm Dr. John Willinsky will give a lecture at the Digital Literacy Centre. Dr. Willinsky is a Professor of Education at UBC and at Stanford University. The lecture, titled Intellectual Properties of Literacy and Learning: The Missing Lessons, is part of the Digital Literacy Centre Speaker Series.

Intellectual Properties of Literacy and Learning: The Missing Lessons: This digital age has raised the profile of intellectual property in
ways that may well warrant inclusion in all forms of literacy education. This presentation will review the principles of intellectual property that appear most pertinent to work with students and teachers. It will then focus on what might be termed the intellectual properties of learning, which, it will be demonstrated, have long possessed a special legal status, which amounts to a public trust, that we may be able to do more, in this digi tal age, to honor.
