Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

Higher education staff and students are guided on how they find and use OER as well as create and share their work as OER using the Forum’s just published higher education resource the National Forum Open Licensing Toolkit– (itself an OER). Guest speaker Jennryn Wetzler, Assistant Director of Open Education at Creative Commons, brings a wealth of experience and will describe how the use of open licenses and OER can be used to enhance teaching and learning. This webinar is facilitated by Dr. Catherine Cronin, Strategic Education Developer, National Forum, who also focuses on how the National Forum is supporting the use of open licensing and OER, particularly for current Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund projects. This webinar supports the Forum’s current strategy to promote agile, responsive approaches to teaching and learning in an open digital world and to provide targeted support for those who guide and support the use of technology in teaching and learning.

Specifically, those over a hundred years old, without identifying features or sensitive features such as developmental anomalies.
