Open Educational Resources: Availability, Adaptability, and Affordability

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials in any  medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an  open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions. This workshop will explore the impact of OER use in higher education,  discuss copyright and open licensing, and explore avenues for identifying existing OER that can  be remixed and reused. The presentation will cover updates on Canadian initiatives and  highlight the emergence of open educational practices in teaching and learning.
