Free CoPILOT event at Glasgow Caledonian University – Wednesday, 12th February 2014

Unesco IL LogoCoPILOT (Community of Practice for Information Literacy Online Teaching) are holding a free event at Glasgow Caledonian University on Wednesday, 12th February 2014.

The workshop will provide a practical introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER) for teaching information literacy. Though a mixture of presentation, group work and hands-on activity, participants will learn to find, evaluate and consider adopting OER for use in their own practice.

Participants are invited to identify opportunities where OER can enhance their current teaching, and to bring their own materials along to the session to release as OER.

At the end of the session, participants will:

  • Gain an overview of Creative Commons licencing and be able to add a chosen licence to a resource
  • Be ¬†introduced to the OER repositories to find existing resources and to add their own
  • Reflect on personal attitudes and behaviour in relation to Open Practice

A free sandwich lunch will be provided.

The workshop is free, but participants must book in advance. A full schedule for the day is available from the booking page.
