I’ve come across a book chapter that I want to give out to my students. Can I photocopy it and hand it out to them?

Yes. You can photocopy and hand out copyrighted works as long as they fall within the guidelines described on the Queen's Fair Dealing Policy web page. If you want to hand out material that is in excess of these guidelines use the Copyright Advisory Office Clearance and Permissions service. If you want to provide multiple articles to students on a regular basis, for example, every year that you teach the course, and you know what articles you want to include in advance, you should consider creating a Copyright and Course Packs.
