College instructors might prepare learning packages students can use as a resource in their courses. Learning packages might also be prepared to act as a supplement to a chosen textbook. Please note, each term a learning package is adopted, even if there are no changes, it must be submitted to James Yochem, copyright coordinator, in the LRC for copyright approval.
The fair dealing provision in the Copyright Act permits use of a copyright-protected work without permission from the copyright owner or the payment of copyright royalties. Conestoga’s Fair Dealing Policy allows short excerpts of copyright-protected works to be copied, printed and scanned for educational purposes, including for distribution to each student enrolled in a class as part of a learning package.
When copying or communicating short excerpts from a copyright-protected work under the Fair Dealing Policy, the source must be cited and, if given in the source, the name of the author or creator of the work must be provided.
