Proposal Abstract

As more institutions consider adopting Open Educational Resources into their classrooms, educators, librarians, and other staff are increasingly faced with questions about copyright - but navigating licensing, fair use, and open is never easy.

Creative Commons licenses are designed to help simplify the process, but they operate in this complex environment. This seminar aims to provide an introduction to OER, Creative Commons licenses, and fair use – helping practitioners reduce uncertainty about copyright in their day-to-day roles.

This session will comprise of two parts: an overview on the basics of copyright, fair use, and licensing, but focusing on the CC licenses, how they operate, and what considerations they entail; and at least 20 minutes reserved for audience discussion, troubleshooting, and Q & A with a CC expert.
