The OER & CC Training Arena is a virtual space where OER Superhero faculty can learn more about topics to help in the fight for open education to ultimately banish high-cost materials from higher education.
Superhero faculty will learn about Creative Commons (CC), copyright fundamentals, fair use, sharing work through CC licensing, and finding and using open education resources (OER).
Each “station” in the Arena is equipped with the necessary information for learning more about these essential areas, and practice challenge activities are suggested.
The Arena is designed so participant instructors can quickly work through each topic. It will be important to keep the station modules and activities short and repeatable with busy workloads. This training should take 3-4 hours total to complete. The approximate time for each module is listed on each station.
The Arena’s goal is to foster greater awareness of OER and Creative Commons within the university and encourage instructors to engage in copyright and copyleft sharing and promote open pedagogy and a culture of sharing.
