Can I Use This? Working with Open Educational Resources and Exploring Copyright in Teaching and Learning

August 24, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 22–26, 2022: https://institute.ctlt.ubc.ca/summer-institute/summer-institute-events

If you are preparing resources for your teaching, from PowerPoint slides to online modules, chances are you’ll want to incorporate readings, images, video clips, problem sets, or other materials from different sources. There are millions of open educational resources (OER), from full courses and textbooks to tests banks and images, that are available for others to freely use. Such openly-licensed resources can impact teaching and learning through contextualization, time savings and lowering student access barriers such as costs.

This session will focus on the pragmatic elements of reuse, the essentials of copyright, and the basics of working with OER that are licensed to allow revision and reuse. It will address common questions concerning copyright and the use of OER for teaching and learning, including:
a) What makes educational resources “open”?
b) What are the key considerations in using, adapting, or creating OER?
c) How do UBC’s Copyright and Fair-Dealing guidelines impact teaching and learning?
d) What support is available at UBC for working with OER?

Participants are invited to bring their questions, needs and favourite open resources to share.
