Would performance of a video as part of a professional development
course (for college employees) be considered an educational exemption
("face-to-face teaching")? Is there any distinction made, in copyright
law, between regularly scheduled classes and this sort of situation? It
would seem harmless enough, but I'm curious to see the group's opinion.

P.S. Thanks to all of you who answered my question last week, re:
public peformance of films.
