The ethos of the University, as an educational charity, encourages learning, free sharing of ideas, growth of novel ideas, and ongoing professional development based on what is learned. In keeping with this ethos we expect participants to have unencumbered access to tools and materials during the summer school. In order to fully benefit from this learning experience, we would expect such free access to continue for a reasonable period of time after the summer school. In addition, the University would look to use, share, and develop within an educational context the tools and materials provided by collaborators at the summer school. We expect that contributors used to university collaboration are already familiar with this context. If however any participant has any issue with this, please contact Adam Wyner (a.z.wyner@swansea.ac.uk) for clarification or modification.
