University Libraries WorkshopOpen Educational Resources (OER) are public or openly licensed educational materials for teaching and learning that anyone may freely retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute. From textbooks to assignments to media, OER offer students and instructors new and familiar ways to interact with and contribute to scholarship without the costs or copyright restrictions of traditional materials. This University Libraries session will demonstrate how you can identify no-cost options that allow for instructional flexibility and student success.

University Libraries WorkshopAs classes go online and course materials become increasingly digital, copyright considerations can be difficult to navigate. This University Libraries workshop will explore Creative Commons licenses, a more permissive licensing structure that allows you to add media directly to Canvas, instructional materials, and your scholarship without worrying about copyright. You may be used to seeing CC icons online on photos, videos, infographics, even textbook chapters and scholarly articles—but what exactly do they mean? We will identify resources where you can find a wealth of media content and Open Educational Resources (OER) to augment your instruction and scholarship.
