EVENT TIMES : 12:30 - 16:30

This half-day workshop explores the growing interest and participation by higher education teachers/institutions in open educational resources. In the session, you will investigate a range of ‘sharing’ websites and repositories, and will consider the benefits and risks of openly sharing their teaching content; you will hear case studies from university teachers engaged in open sharing and have the opportunity for hands-on practice in using an online repository to publish your work.

You will also explore some of the key issues of concern to those engaged in the open sharing movement, including:

i) an exploration of the copyright and IPR implications of open sharing and examination of the potential risks, with reference to real examples

ii) consideration of the practicalities of creating materials to share, how to take account of copyright and IPR issues when creating resources and offers some practical solutions in how to minimize risks.

This event will be of interest to:

  • Teachers who wish to develop as ‘e-teachers’
  • Teachers and learning technologists engaged in, or who wish to engage in, the creation of online learning materials
  • Anyone wishing to create, share or use online content
  • Anyone interested in issues around the publication of teaching resources online (including copyright and IPR)

This workshop is the third of three events running over three consecutive afternoons at UCL. It stands alone but complements the other workshops in the set.
