May CopyTalk: Creative Commons Certificate

2018-04-25 | District Dispatch

The newly developed Creative Commons (CC) Certificate program was created for librarians, educators, and government in response to the continued growth in the use of CC licenses globally and the corresponding need to help people acquire Commons knowledge and skills. This session will review the CC Certificates program including content, feedback from the beta, building a train-the-trainer program for CC country chapters (and other partners) who want to offer the CC Certificates and certify others, and remixing the CC Certificates into University courses to train the next generation of librarians and educators.

Our speaker, Cable Green works with the global open education community to influence open licensing, open content, and open policies to significantly improve access to quality, affordable, education and research resources so everyone in the world can attain all the education they desire. His career is dedicated to increasing access to educational opportunities for everyone around the world. He’s a leading advocate for open licensing policies that ensure publicly funded education materials are freely and openly available to the public that has paid for them. Cable has twenty years of academic technology, online learning, and open education experience and helped establish the Open Course Library. Cable holds a Ph.D. in educational psychology from Ohio State University and enjoys motorcycling and playing in the mountains with his family. He lives in Olympia with his wife and two boys.
