AAUP National is inviting faculty upset about the Purdue Global NDA to join with them in supporting a statement posted here. Please join us by adding your name!
Purdue Global’s NDA states that any work product, including all course materials "or other intellectual property that arises in any part in the course of … employment at Purdue Global, is commissioned and owned by Purdue Global as a work-for-hire and may not be used, duplicated or distributed outside of Purdue Global."
“Asserting ownership over the faculty’s teaching-related materials undermines standard academic practice, violating faculty rights to their own intellectual property as well as their academic freedom,” Scholtz says. “This type of agreement would be unprecedented for a public, non-profit university.”
More information available through the press release here.
