If you use images in your teaching...

TASI (the JISC Technical Advisory Service for Images are looking for case studies to use in a free
workshop focused on strategies for locating images suitable for use
within teaching and learning with particular reference to avoiding
problems with copyright. There will also be an online tutorial on
searching for images. Case studies may illustrate either
A) the problems people have experienced with using copyright protected
images in their materials or
B) success stories about using copyright-free images.
The case studies will be very short but will illustrate to users of an
online tutorial the benefits involved in changing the way they search
for images.

Possible subjects for the case studies could include:
i) students that have had work rejected due to the inclusion of
copyright protected images
ii) lecturers that have had to remove content from VLEs or
iii) legal problems with use of copyright protected images on websites
iv) benefits of using a copyright free repository/Creative Commons
resources in terms of peace of mind, time saving etc.
v) discovery of good locations for the provision of images perhaps
within a certain subject or field of study which are free to use

Please email David Kilbey ( if you would like to
contribute and *please copy me* so that I can construct an annotated
summary of resources available as a list on the website and as a
pamphlet. I think this would be useful and while I know about the
'copyright cleared for teaching' collections of the Archaeology Image
Bank and Vroma, and the free use collections of images in
Flickr and of those under various commons
licences held at Wikimedia Commons, I haven't used them for
teaching myself, so couldn't comment on their quality and there must be
more that I don't know about (yet)!
