Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning, and research materials in any medium that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others—and therefore are free or low-cost to students. Most OER are openly released with Creative Commons Licenses that state specifically how the material can be used, reused, adapted, and shared. Learn more about OER and Creative Commons with librarian Joanne Spadaro in this 1-hour introductory workshop for faculty and staff. 
The workshop will cover: 
  • What is OER? 
  • Why use OER? 
  • What is Creative Commons? 
  • Where to find OER? 
A light lunch will be provided. Please email spadaroj [at] (Joanne Spadaro) or call516.876.2896 by Oct. 18, 2019 to RSVP
