2014/03 Policy #81 (Use of Teaching Materials in a UBC Credit Course) We are pleased that the Board of Governors has recently approved a policy that we believe supports instructors in what is, and will continue to be, a rapidly changing learning environment. Policy #81 (Use of Teaching Materials in a UBC Credit Course) has four core elements: 1. It confirms that teaching materials are owned by the UBC instructors who create them. 2. It supports, but does not require, sharing and collaboration by enabling UBC instructors to use and revise the teaching materials developed by their UBC colleagues in UBC credit courses without the administrative burden of seeking and recording explicit permissions. 3. It encourages, but does not require, UBC instructors to share their teaching materials freely and openly beyond the borders of UBC using open source licensing. 4. It recognizes that, in certain situations, UBC instructors may prefer that their teaching materials not be used across UBC, and therefore enables them to restrict such use.
