That's Mine! How to Cite, Modify, and Create OERs using Creative Commons
Seibert, Heather; Reeves, Delores
Open Educational Resource use is on the rise. Due to budget restraints and a general shift of sharing information, many institutions and creators are opening their creative works for other educators to freely use, modify, and share. However, how will those creators be given credit and their intellectual property be protected? That is where the Creative Commons license comes into play. This interactive workshop will go over how to cite open resources, as well as how to create a Creative Common's license for your own work. We will be creating our own works, modifying works already under the Creative Commons License, discovering other open material, and determining how to cite them. Attendees will take with them the knowledge and confidence in using Creative Commons, where to find them, cite them, and use them at their institutions. We will also briefly go over some of the problems and pitfalls with Creative Commons and some of the general assumptions and mistakes when pertaining to Creative Commons.
