Academic Freedom, Privacy, Copyright and Fair Use in a Technological World

Distance Learning
Educational Policies Committee

This position paper of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges examines the increasing use of technology in education and the fundamental, academic implications of this increase for the traditional understanding of academic freedom, privacy, copyright and fair use. It is third in a series of four related papers that have already discussed academic freedom in a more general setting and instructor-student contact in distance education. The fourth paper will discuss more specific details of technology implementation in both the academic and the collective bargaining setting.
