Question

07 Is a lecturer that works for University of Groningen allowed to share student work with third parties?

Answer

Copyright law states that copyright is transferred to the supervisor when work is done under supervision of that person. This is referred to use student work without permission. Still, this is not recommended. The piece was not created to be shared on the internet but as an assignment in the learning process of the student. The student should be safe to rely on it that his or her work is dealt with confidentially.

However, it may be different when the goal of the course is to learn student information skills, like making a blog. In this scenario the student materials are and can be published on the internet. Still, it is wise to discuss with the students what the consequences of publication could be. The student will have to learn how to use visuals without violating copyright and which kinds of re-usage is allowed based on the limitation on copyright to make quotations.
