Faculty Brown Bag Lunch Chat: How are we dealing with stress remotely?

Offered in conjunction with Campus Mental Health Services.

Thursday, July 30, 12:00pm-1:00pm

RSVP at You will be sent an access link after RSVPing.

The past few months have presented faculty with challenges that few could have anticipated, and those challenges brought with them new sources of stress. At the same time, we became physically isolated from our familiar workplace support structures, and from the impact of being able to inspire students face-to-face.

This Brown Bag Lunch is a chance for faculty to talk informally about the impact the past few months has had on them, both personally and professionally. It is a chance to hear from colleagues with similar concerns and challenges, to learn from each other, and to think about the supports we need.

In this session, we will discuss the exclusive rights granted to copyright holders and how fair use can provide for exceptions for certain – but not all – educational purposes. Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of the limitations of such exceptions, how these exceptions are applied differently depending on the delivery mode of a course, and best practices for avoiding copyright infringement in online learning spaces.
