First Sher­brooke Col­le­gial Part­ner­ship for World Book and Copy­right Day

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Lennoxville

Justin time for UNESCO World Book and Copy­right Day, the three Sher­brooke col­leges: Cham­plain Col­lege – Lennoxville, Col­lé­gial du Sémi­naire de Sher­brooke and Cégep de Sher­brooke, joined forces to raise aware­ness con­cern­ing copy­right laws with their re­spec­tive stu­dents. This ped­a­gog­i­cal ac­tiv­ity was an ideal cause to unite them in pro­mot­ing the re­spect of copy­right laws.

Dur­ing the ac­tiv­ity held si­mul­ta­ne­ously in the three ed­u­ca­tional es­tab­lish­ments, the stu­dents had an op­por­tu­nity to win gift cer­tifi­cates from three lo­cal book­stores by sim­ply an­swer­ing a short quiz on copy­right laws pre­pared by the three Col­leges.

The draws were made pos­si­ble with the help of the im­por­tant spon­sors: Bishop’s Uni­ver­sity COOP, COOP du Sémi­naire de Sher­brooke, COOP du Cégep de Sher­brooke and Re­naud-Bray. Twenty-five gift cer­tifi­cates were won by stu­dents at­tend­ing Sher­brooke’s three Col­leges.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the ini­tial edi­tion, it is hoped this will be­come an an­nual event and there will be many other ped­a­gog­i­cal col­lab­o­ra­tions. The or­ga­niz­ers are al­ready look­ing to­wards the 2016 edi­tion and to form­ing an Eastern Town­ship’s Col­le­gial Part­ner­ship.
