An Analysis of University Policy Statements on Instructional Recordings and their Re-Use. An Occasional Paper from Eric at Stanford.
Siebert, Fred S.
The frequently recurring provisions, to be found in the policy statements of a selected group of 20 colleges and universities, concerning the production, use, and re-use of instructional recordings (visual and oral) can be divided for the purposes of analysis and comparison into four groups: ownership and copyright provisions, faculty rights, faculty compensation, and administration and review of policies. Almost all institutions which have adopted policies assign ownership to the university. Faculty rights have four major aspects: autonomy, internal re-use, external distribution, and revision and withdrawal. Almost all policy statements indicate that the instructor is responsible for the structure and the content of the recordings. A few have specific provisions for re-use, though a majority require the instructor to sign a release for external use prior to production, and many also require department approval when the recording is to be made available for distribution. The occasion for revision is usually determined by the instructor and/or the department. Faculty compensation is quite varied across the institutions surveyed. Outside persons participating in the recording are usually paid some type of flat fee. Nearly all policies contain provisions for an administrative and review body. A list of colleges whose policies are compared is appended. (MT)
