By its nature, Independent School teachers have had the freedom and flexibility to create their own curriculum. What happens to that curriculum once a teacher departs the school? Who has ownership of this intellectual property?

As students and faculty become more deeply immersed in making and creating "real solutions to authentic, real world problems", an interesting question arises. What about intellectual property rights? Who owns the ideas? Are there different rules for faculty and students? When is it appropriate to investigate patenting?

In business and higher education, the answer is cut and dry, but in independent schools, it’s murkier. Join Vinnie Vrotny in a lively discussion of the issues more schools are sure to encounter. This session will explore these questions and provide guidance on how to create a policy that fits your school’s culture and preserves the uniqueness of your program.
