With over twenty years of training experience, Gretchen McCord has been praised by professionals from educational institutions, libraries, business, and more for her abilities to make complex legal issues make sense and to help participants understand application of the law in their daily professional lives. Gretchen provides both face-to-face and online workshops on a range of topics associated with copyright, privacy, and social media law. Her experience includes teaching as an adjunct at both the university and community college levels and providing Continuing Legal Education programs in several states.
Whatever the topic or medium, Gretchen’s goal for her training is for participants to leave the session with not only knowledge of the law, but the analytical skills necessary to be confident in applying the law in their professional lives. She is successful in achieving this goal because she is successful in engaging participants in an interactive learning experience.
We offer both live online workshops and asynchronous downloadable workshops on a variety of topics.
Who would think that privacy and copyright law could be so interesting? Gretchen McCord can take very unwieldy and complex legal issues and make them understandable … Her credentials are only part of her story. Knowing how to convey information is her specialty.
No two organizations are alike, and that includes training needs. We routinely work with educational institutions, non-profits, and others to provide customized training tailored to individualized needs and resources (including budgets and time).
Gretchen McCord did a fantastic job of tailoring a day-long copyright workshop for Kansas State University faculty to their particular interests. She gave faculty the grounding they needed to understand and apply the slippery concept of fair use. For what is potentially a very dry topic, Gretchen maintained a high energy level and kept faculty engaged during the entire session. At a Faculty Senate meeting following the workshop, a faculty member congratulated the Library for sponsoring the event, but all the credit goes to Gretchen.
