An experienced instructor…
All courses are taught by attorney Gretchen McCord, who has been practicing, and teaching, copyright law since 2001. Gretchen cut her teeth on copyright issues as an academic librarian, prior to attending law school, and continues to work with librarians and educators today. This unique background gives her an insider’s valuable perspective on the joys and challenges of today’s librarians and educators.
…Who Speaks Your Language
Gretchen has a gift for explaining complex and sometimes confusing concepts in a way that makes them suddenly make sense. As a past workshop participant puts it, “She has the ability to take a subject as amorphous as copyright and turn it into a fascinating workshop full of examples and down-to-earth explanations.”
“Her credentials are only part of her story. Knowing how to convey information is her specialty.”
