Abstract

Written for a symposium addressing the need to construct a positive policy and research agenda for international intellectual property law, this article explores ways to improve the design and delivery of intellectual property training and educational programs. The article draws on the author's experience as the rapporteur for the International Roundtable on WIPO Development Agenda for Academics.

The article begins by reflecting on WIPO’s changing orientation, outlining the principles and goals recognized in its Development Agenda. It emphasizes the need for an expansion of coverage in intellectual property training and educational programs. It also offers guidelines on ways to redesign these programs. The article then highlights the need for introducing a more diverse set of skills and perspectives through training and educational programs. It concludes by suggesting some innovative methods to enhance delivery of these programs.
