Friday conundrum

I have gotten about 15 articles for a physician who is presenting a
lecture to a group of physicians and nurses at our institution.  

He wants to provide copies of the articles(in a digital format) and says
well I am giving it to them for them to use under fair use 

" I can distribute these to the attending staff providing they use them
under the 'fair use' law, correct?"    

I am thinking NO    however when we get into lecturers  and education
use  I am really murky on what is okay and what is not?    Opinions Dear
