The enabling environment of the internet brings far-reaching changes to Intellectual Property issues. Using the internet as a resource for teaching and learning is becoming an imperative in Higher Education. However lack of awareness about online copyright laws frequently leads to unintentional breaching of these laws especially in terms of images. This workshop for Year 1 students in the Health Sciences Faculty aims to educate students about OER, to develop their capacity to source appropriate material (especially images) on the World Wide Web, to raise an awareness of online copyright issues and to assist the students in understanding and respecting copyright laws. The link between health and human rights is used as the main topic for guiding students' searches.
