UMD’s general policies can be found at this link. The text below is a supplement to these policies and describes the principles I aim to follow in creating our classroom space.
Copyright and sharing
Class lectures and other materials may not be reproduced for anything other than personal use without written permission from the instructor.
Where course materials are shared publicly on the web, you are welcome to pass on the link to friends, but I ask that you check with me before making any other use of the material. It is a violation of both personal confidence and academic integrity to share other students’ work outside the context of this class without their explicit permission.
Your own work from this course is yours to use as you like. Bear in mind, though, that while the use of copyrighted material to create new transformative works is considered to be fair use, this is a complex and rapidly changing legal area.
The University of Maryland, College Park has a nationally recognized Code of Academic Integrity, administered by the Student Honor Council. This Code sets standards for academic integrity at Maryland for all undergraduate and graduate students. As a student you are responsible for upholding these standards for this course. It is very important for you to be aware of the consequences of cheating, fabrication, facilitation, and plagiarism. Cheating includes: reusing portions of coursework for credit, allowing others to prepare work, and utilizing external aids including commercial term paper and internet companies. If you have a question regarding any of the above or the code in general, consult immediately with one of the instructors.
