Linda Enghagen, J.D., is an attorney and professor in the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. An early entrant into distance education, her teaching career began in 1984 when she first taught Engineering Law & Ethics in the university’s video-based distance education program.
Ms. Enghagen’s early involvement in distance education led to her work on legal literacy in the information age, and to her interest in copyright law as it relates to education. She is a Copyright Law Research Specialist for the Online Learning Consortium and offers online workshops in copyright compliance in educational settings.
Ms. Enghagen has written two books on intellectual property that are targeted to the needs of faculty members, including Technology and Higher Education: Approaching the 21st Century and Fair Use Guidelines for Educators. She has also written numerous articles, including, to name a few: Plagiarism: Intellectual Dishonesty, Violation of Law or Both?; Fair Use in an Electronic World; and Copyright Law and Fair Use—Why Ignorance Isn’t Bliss. Ms. Enghagen has created several pamphlets and brochures on copyright law, and was a guest commentator on the local NPR affiliate where she discussed copyright piracy in a piece entitled Napster Worries Me.
In 1990, she became the first woman given the Outstanding Instructor Award from National Technological University. She is also the recipient of three outstanding teaching awards from the University of Massachusetts.
