The IP Teaching Kit provides academic teaching staff with a unique collection of PowerPoint slides, speaking notes and background information on all the main types of intellectual property (IP).
The materials can be tailored to the students' areas of study, their prior knowledge of IP, their learning goals and the time available.
IP Basics gives you the tools you need to put together an introductory lecture on IP lasting between one and two hours.
IP Advanced contains more in-depth learning material, case studies and exercises. It also looks at IP management and the role of IP in the commercial exploitation of technologies.
IP Search Tools introduces students to some of the major IP rights databases, including Espacenet, TMview and Designview.
