Open access publishing is rapidly growing in popularity, while materials
for re-use in education and training are increasingly being sourced free
from the web.  This workshop will equip participants to use open licensing
with confidence when they make knowledge available on the Internet, and to
understand the key issues for reusing open licensed materials published by
others.  ****

** **

It will provide a simple “how-to” guide to the Creative Commons licensing
framework, the international standard which sets out allowable uses of
knowledge published free on the web.  Participants will learn how to
publish using open licences, what to consider when re-using open licensed
materials, and how to advise other knowledge producers.  ****

The workshop will include the facility for participants to post questions
and to receive facilitator replies via the website and / or by email. Find
