The Digital Library Federation’s Digital Library Pedagogy group is partnering with FemTechNet to develop a DOCC (distributed open collaborative course) on 'Legal issues for multimodal scholarship & pedagogy.' The idea for this DOCC emerged from the What’s on the Digital Library Pedagogy Menu? working lunch at the 2016 Digital Library Federation Forum.


The target audience includes both librarians and disciplinary scholars and graduate students interested in creating multimodal scholarship or cultivating their students as creators of digital scholarship.

Potential topics

Potential partners or key faculty members

  • Composition & rhetoric scholars and people who publish in e.g. Kairos
  • Digital media & communication scholars
  • Legal experts (such as scholarly communication librarians or university counsel) on intellectual property, privacy, security, FERPA, etc.
  • Librarians who have partnered with disciplinary faculty to create multimodal scholarship and/or pedagogy

Potential course activities

  • Creating curricular material as OERs — “teaching as an open workflow"
  • Contributing materials to Project CORA or Humanities Commons or #DLFteach wiki or DLF OSF

Defining 'open' for this DOCC

  • Conversations in ‘all may come’ but private spaces, which in turn can generate open materials?
  • Not making participants list public? Opt in rather than opt out?
