What's New with Creative Commons

Education Innovations with Creative Commons - from OER, to Pedagogy, to Policy

You may be familiar with Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools, but do you know that they are involved with numerous initiatives that are positively impacting higher education and Open Education Resource Adoption?

Join Paul Stacey, Associate Director of Global Learning for Creative Commons, for an interactive webcast on what is happening at Creative Commons relative to higher education and student success. Learn more about:

  • The U.S. Department of Labor’s multibillion-dollar TAACCCT program requires use of CC BY license on all new curricula developed with grant funds. The $2 billion size of this initiative makes it the biggest Open Education Resource initiative in the world. Creative Commons has been assisting grantees in understanding the licenses and the Open Educational Resources involved.
  • The Open Policy Network, a coalition of organizations committed to advancing policies that require open licenses for publicly funded materials.
  • The recently launched Institute for Open Leadership (IOL) to train new leaders in education, science, and public policy fields on the values and implementation of openness in licensing, policies, and practices.
  • Major open textbook initiatives in British Columbia, WA, CA, Oregon, and beyond supported by Creative Commons.
  • How open pedagogies are used that leverage the openly licensed nature of the resources and where students are asked to become co-creators of knowledge as a public good shared globally.

Join Paul Stacey during Open Education Week on March 12, at Noon MDT to learn more and ask your questions.

“What's new at Creative Commons" will run for 60 minutes.
