OER and Copyright: Free and Fair Are Not Open

This session will equip librarians and educators with the knowledge and resources to ethically and effectively use, create and share Openly-Licensed Educational Resources (OER). Bring your device to explore copyright, free versus open resources, and checkpoints for reviewing OER! Collaborate with colleagues while building collective knowledge, solving real-life scenarios, and exploring resources! Everyone will leave with links to resources and a checklist for designing OER.
