Anyone interested in publishing a course open educational resources (OER) is invited to a training session for dScribe with the Open.Michigan folks.
Anyone with an interest in publishing a course or their own material as OER and learning more about the Open.Michigan initiative is invited. This session in particular will offer training on dScribe and cover basic information about copyright, intellectual property law, identifying common copyright issues in traditional course materials, and using Open.Michigan’s content clearance application, OERca.
SI alumna Emily Puckett Rodgers, open education coordinator with the Open.Michigan Office of Enabling Technologies, says dScribe is short for “digital and distributed scribes.” It is a participatory and collaborative model for creating open content that brings together enrolled students, staff, faculty, and self-motivated learners to create content that is openly licensed and available to people throughout the world.
The training session will be from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 7 in the Turkish-American Friendship Room, 4004 Shapiro Library. Lunch will be provided; you are asked to RSVP for the session.
