When: Wednesday, March 9, 2022 - 12:00

As part of Open Education Week 2022, UL Library’s Head of Information Services, Michelle Breen will join Dr. Angelica Risquez from UL’s Centre for Transformative Learning for a webinar on how academics can safely engage with open education.

Open education is defined as a way of carrying out education, often using digital technologies, with the aim of widening access and participation for everyone by removing barriers and making learning accessible, abundant, and customisable for all. (EU Science Hub, European Commission, 2016, CC BY). However, many might be reluctant to engage in open education because of concerns around intellectual property and copyright of their own material. As part of Open Education Week 2022 (#OEWeek), this session will provide some practical advice on protecting the authorship of your teaching materials while also engaging with open education principles.

Date: Thursday, March 10, 2022
