Open Educational Resources & Creative Commons - Application, Impact, and Benefits

  1. 1. Open Educational Resources & Application, Impact, & Benefits with Paul Stacey Associate Director of Global Learning Creative Commons November 26, 2013 Except where otherwise noted these materials are licensed Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 (CC BY)
  2. 2. “The air and oceans, the web of species, wilderness and flowing water – all are part of the commons. So are language and knowledge, sidewalks and public squares, … Some parts of the commons are gifts of nature, others the product of human endeavor. Some are new, such as the Internet; others as ancient as soil and calligraphy.” Part 1: The Commons as a New Paradigm Part 2: Capitalism, Enclosure and Resistance Part 3: Commoning a Social Innovation of our Time Part 4: Knowledge Commons for Social Change Part 5: Envisioning a Commons-Based Policy and Production Framework

  4. 4. “The goal of the Sharing City is to create jobs and increase incomes, address environmental issues, reduce unnecessary consumption and waste, and recover trust-based relationships between people. With more than 10 million people living within 234 square miles, Seoul is in a good position to demonstrate the benefits of tech-enabled sharing.” “Shareable U. It’s part campus sustainability, part new economics, part DIY, and part open education. What brings all these movements together on campus is a desire to create more value for less money via increased collaboration between people, departments, institutions, and communities.”
  5. 5. Impact #1: Open Policy Public funds should result in a public good “buy one, get one”.
  6. 6. TAACCCT Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College & Career Training • Grantees must license new development with Creative Common license (CC BY) • CHEO resources will be publicly shared
  7. 7. SGA Requirements • Work that must be licensed under the CC BY includes both new content created with the grant funds and modifications made to pre-existing, grantee-owned content using grant funds. • Only work that is developed by the grantee with the grant funds is required to be licensed under the CC BY license. Pre-existing copyrighted materials licensed to, or purchased by the grantee from third parties, including modifications of such materials, remain subject to the intellectual property rights the grantee receives under the terms of the particular license or purchase. In addition, works created by the grantee without grant funds do not fall under the CC BY license requirement. • The Department will ensure that deliverables developed with these funds are publicly available.
  8. 8. Impact #2: Open License SGA Requirements • All successful applicants must allow broad access for others to use and enhance project products and offerings, including authorizing for-profit derivative uses of the courses and associated learning materials by licensing newly developed materials produced with grant funds with a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). TAACCCT
  9. 9. Impact #3: Open Educational Resources SGA Requirements • This license allows subsequent users to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the copyrighted work and requires such users to attribute the work in the manner specified by the Grantee. • The purpose of the CCBY licensing requirement is to ensure that materials developed with funds provided by these grants result in Work that can be freely reused and improved by others.
  10. 10. OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses and supplemental resources such as textbooks, images, videos, animations, simulations, assessments, … Core Concept – 4R’s OER are learning materials freely available under a license that allows you to: •Reuse •Revise •Remix •Redistribute
  11. 11. Impact #4: Design & Development Find and use existing OER! Partner with other grantees developing health curricula. Develop content using open file formats: See Appendix B of Round 3 SGA
  12. 12. Impact #5: Pedagogy Teaching and learning methods can take new forms to leverage the open nature of the content. Why not a commons-based peer production model of education? • Eliminate disposable assignments • Use student work to contribute to and improve the course. • As a built-in part of the education process develop globally distributed resources in the form of public goods. • Goods evolve and advance over time as prior work is built upon, added to, and improved by teachers and students. • Teaching and learning is applied to real social needs/problems - intrinsically motivational. • Use social constructivist and connectivist modes of learning.
  13. 13. Impact #5: Storage & Access SGA Requirements • • All grantees are required to submit their deliverables to DOL at the end of the grant period. The Department will ensure that deliverables developed with these funds are publicly available. DOL solution TBD. Recommend you implement your own.
  14. 14. Impact #6: Marketing
  15. 15. Impact #7: Partnerships & Scale Open shifts education from a solo proprietary endeavor to a collaborative shared process. Find partners. Form networks around OER. Scale adoption and use.
