The course below looks fascinating, but I’m teaching:
It is increasingly tempting, when creating teaching and learning resources, to ‘borrow’ images and other teaching and learning resources from the internet and elsewhere. ‘Open educational resources’ is a term for original resources which are shared under licence.
This workshop will cover the dos and donts of ‘borrowing’ other people’s stuff (especially if you are planning to upload the results to a virtual learning or other shared environment), and enable you to safely share or protect your own resources using appropriate licences.

At the end of the workshop participants will:
- Be able to confidently use resources such as images and resources from the internet and elsewhere, attributing content creators (copyright owners), when creating teaching and learning resources
- Understand the difference between copyright ownership and licencing and how to use resources shared under licence
- Be able to clearly indicate the copyright status of any works you have created using an appropriate Creative Commons licence
- Be aware of how to deal with consent issues in using patient data in learning and teaching resources
- Exemplify best practice in ‘digital professionalism’ and manage risks when creating sustainable teaching resources
An electronic information pack will be available in advance of the workshop and emailed out to participants as well as being made available from the MEDEV website.
The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Megan Quentin Baxter, Director, MEDEV Subject Centre – http://www.medev.ac.uk/about/staff/M.Quentin-Baxter/.
