In this workshop, members of the Open.Michigan initiative will teach
you how to find openly licensed content and show you how to remix it
to create new open educational resources (OER). Included will be an
overview of copyright law and we will discuss how this applies to the
creation and use of OER. Examples of OER use and reuse will illustrate
how these resources can have an impact on local and international
learning communities and how they have been used in specific contexts.
Participants will also get a chance to generate examples of OER and
learn how these resources can be accessed and adapted online. Please
bring your laptop and some of your own learning materials or resources
to this workshop and we will help you make it open on the spot.
Examples of OER can be found at: http://ur1.ca/2lhe9 and
