I don't have much of a problem with this. If the school is paying me to do the work that I do then I can see how they would expect that work to stay with them when I leave. The only issue I might have is that so many educators, including me, are working for multiple institutions and possibly running their own training companies.The handbook goes on to say that "work that is the same as, directly related to, or substantially similar to a work for which that employee has been specifically assigned, hired, or commissioned by the College to create, then 'significant use' of College resources will be presumed and ownership of the work shall belong to the College."
I'm not sure how that could ever be enforced. If I'm teaching a communications course for 3 different institutions and through my own company then who gets to claim ownership over the materials I create in the process? This is where copyright law seems completely silly. Nobody owns the work. I don't own it and none of the institutions own it. It's simply a process of knowledge transfer. #OCL4ED
In my case, I simply don't worry about it. They can have it all when I leave :)
Developing open source materials for general education courses would be much easier. Basic science courses and humanities courses have many open resources available. Then it is just a matter of finding a way to get past the time, budget, and restrictive intellectual property polices.

I see the world through a lens of wonder and awe. My inspiration comes from the smallest inner workings of the natural world, and I translate that inspiration into photographs, digital art, mixed media pieces, and oral and written commentary on the world as seen through my eyes. You can visit me at my gallery and shop most Saturdays. Check my blog for more information.
Love of nature leads easily into life as a gardener. I garden on less than a quarter acre in an urban neighborhood. I grow a variety of vegetables and ornamentals and keep chickens for the eggs and the fertilizer. My goal is to turn my little urban plot into a bit of permaculture heaven.
When I’m not wearing my artist apron or my gardening clogs, I spend my days working as an educator. I am the director of education at a local college, an adjunct speech professor at a local Christian college, and hold classes online through my own company, Oklahoma School of Personal Development (OKSPD). I am passionate about helping others find their place and their passion in this world.
Finally, I am a WordPress geek and like all things Android. I am a fan of and participant in the open source movement. All of my artwork and the materials used in courses with OKSPD are Creative Commons licensed.
Connect with me on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter! I would love to share creative visions with you.
