An introduction to Intellectual Property Rights for those engaging with Open Practice.

Alex Fenlon, Operations Manager – Online Learning, Higher Education Academy

Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Open Practice are major movements in global education. In the UK, HEFCE, the funding body of English universities, has supported the growth of OERs and OP through its UKOER programme administered by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and Jisc.

At recent Changing the Learning Landscape (CLL) workshops, which aims to embed learning technologies in academic practice, there was much interest shown in OERs and OP as a way of accessing and producing open learning materials.

A central question from participants at the CLL workshops remains Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). Many participants were unsure about the legal standing of sharing and using materials. Jisc has produced a number of resources to support IPR issues. Here, Alex Fenlon, an expert in IPR at the HEA will be giving a talk covering the basics of IPR related to OERs and OP.

This webinar is suitable for anyone involved in HE who would like to learn about IPR and how it relates to academic practice. The webinar will involve a presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions. Though the webinar is being run primarily for participants of the CLL CPD workshops, it is open to others as well.

This webinar is free to attend.
