Earlier this year the Copyright Literacy duo, Chris Morrison and Jane Secker took the difficult decision to postpone their annual copyright education event by yet another year to June 2022. Icepops is the International Copyright Literacy Event with Playful Opportunities for Practitioners and Scholars. The conference was first held in 2018 at the University of Liverpool as a satellite event to the LILAC conference. In 2019 it was held at the University of Edinburgh. It is sponsored by the Information Literacy Group.
However, given the interest in copyright during lockdown, the team have decided to hold an online event this summer called I Can’t Believe It’s Not Icepops!
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Icepops! will be a free online event taking place on Friday 25th June 2021 from 11am-3.30pm and the call for contributions is now open. We would like to encourage anyone who has some copyright education or copyright literacy news to share to submit their proposed contribution on the call for contributions form.
The event draws on the spirit of the original Icepops conferences, so we’re looking for playful, games-based or creative approaches to copyright education. The format of the sessions includes lightning talks and World Café presentations, to be held in break-out rooms. We’ll also be drawing on our experience of running weekly webinars on Copyright and Online Learning in a time of Crisis for the education community since March 2020.
The deadline for submissions is Monday 24th May and we look forward to receiving your proposals.
