Through an interdisciplinary entrepreneurial program, academic librarians observed gaps pertaining to a lack of patent knowledge among students and faculty. As an example of libraries leading forward, a group of UCF subject librarians sought to address this issue by discussing how the library can help to integrate patent awareness into a broader STEM library instruction program. Our newly developed peer observation group provided the perfect opportunity to collaborate on how patents could be taught across disciplines.
Join us for an engaging and informative session as we share best practices, successful case studies, and lessons learned. In particular we will offer insights on how to: (1) recognize the value and usefulness of patents and intellectual property, (2) understand the value of peer observation and the steps to start a program at your own institution, and (3) recognize the collaborative benefits of team teaching.
