Local Salary negotiations HTA, 2.5.3 in October:
Digital teaching methods, teaching aids and rights
NAR has got a particular focus on copyright and reuse of digital teaching material. We have addressed these issues in meetings with the parties at UiO.
UiO refers to the current policy for intellectual property rights, https://www.uio.no/english/for-employees/support/research/funding/units/hf/imv/data-ethics/ipr.html
NAR is pleased that UiO recently submitted a proposal that an agreement on the reuse of teaching material has to be in place with the individual teacher in advance.
NAR has requested UiO's opinion when it comes to compensation for reuse of teaching materials. The employer is in principle positive to a compensation or remuneration in the event of re-use, but they have to come back to the practical schemes. NAR interpret this as a positive signal and hope that the practical schemes will be in place shortly.
Many members experience that digital teaching requires a lot of extra work. Extra work gives no compensation despite the fact that we announced in June that the “dugnad” is over. We have received reports of lack of technical equipment and a need for help with video recording, etc. UiO will invest extra resources to help out, and we will follow up on this.
