    Intellectual property represents the property of your mind or intellect. In business terms, this also means your proprietary knowledge.

    it important?
    Like all people, creators of intellectual property want and should be rewarded for their efforts. As a teacher, do you want to be recognised and rewarded in some way for the intellectual property you create, or, do you want other people to use the material without your consent and without you being rewarded for your effort?
    The primary purpose of copyright is to provide an incentive for people to produce new works for the benefit of society as a whole. The incentive is created by the opportunity to be paid when other people use and disseminate those works. Copyright can also reward people who create works without expecting payment, when their works end up being used by others.

    Mostly, within teaching, the type of intellectual property that you will come across is Copyright, so this page will concentrate on that.
    ...
    in Australia
    In Australia, Copyright is governed by two specific Acts; these are the Copyright Act (Cth) 1968, and the Copyright (Digital Agenda) Act (Cth) 2000. For the full text of these Acts, follow the links:
    The Copyright Act (Cth) 1968
    ...
    For more information (in plain English!) about these provisions, see the relevant information sheet from the Copyright Council (above).
    These provisions, though, do not cover teachers.

    As with all Acts, breaches of the Copyright Act are dealt with by the courts. With copyright being a Federal Act, the initial hearing of the matter will usually be undertaken by the Federal Magistrate’s Court. If the matter is not settled in this court, the case can be referred to the Federal Court. In the event of appeal, the matter can go to the High Court of Australia.
    As with all criminal offences, the penalty is decided by the Magistrate or Justice hearing the case. Currently, the maximum penalty for a breach of copyright is a fine of $60 500, and/or five years in jail. In the event of a conviction being recorded, (and sometimes even when there is no conviction recorded) a civil suit can also be launched; this is usually aimed at recovering losses of earnings that the Copyright owner has lost as a result of the breach. The amount awarded is at the discretion of the presiding Magistrate or Justice.

    Arts, Queensland.
    The Department’s Code of Conduct is available from the link below. If you are not employed by the Department of Education, Training and the Arts (Queensland), please consult your employer’s own code of conduct, or similar document.
    http://education.qld.gov.au/corporate/codeofconduct/index.html (accessed(accessed 15/04/2008)
    The Code of Conduct is a most important document to consider; it controls all behaviour of TAFE staff, including teachers. Particularly, section 1.2.1:
    1.2.1 Each of us has an obligation to:
    · respect·respect the rule

    Not following the provisions of the Copyright Act is a breach of the Code of Conduct, and will be treated as such. So, not only will the teacher who has breached the Act be subject to the penalties provided for in the Act and potentially civil penalties as well, (as described above), but will also be subject to penalties which may be applied through the Code, including termination of employment.
    ...
    appropriate resources
    Therefore – there are many things to consider when selecting resources. Not only are quality, pedagogy, learning styles important, but also whether or not the material is legal to be used in the learning situation. Is there an appropriate licence or legal provision which covers the use of the material, or will permission need to be sought before the material can be used? For assistance in determining the appropriate course of action, consult your Institute Library.
    My.TAFE/ResourceBank
    TAFE Queensland’s new Learning Management System (My.TAFE) and the Learning Content Management System (ResourceBank) are both subject to the provisions of the Copyright Act. Particularly, a learning object cannot be uploaded into ResourceBank (and hence linked into My.TAFE) unless all of the copyright permissions are in place and can be demonstrated. These permissions become part of the file, and ResourceBank will not upload a file without the permissions. For assistance in gaining permissions or uploading material into ResourceBank, consult your Institute Library.

    WHAT are 'Learning Styles'?
    In your experience as an educator, you have probably pondered on why some students find it difficult to learn, whereas others find it easy. Some students learn particular skills easily and well, but are not so competent with learning other skills.
