Following the webinars that took place in June, the ALT Open Education 
Special Interest Group is promoting three further  webinars on Open 
Education during November and December. The webinars are open to all, 
and details are shown below.

I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by cross-posting.

*1. How to write an OER workshop (for staff development)*

*Wednesday 5th November  13.00 - 13.40*

This workshop will look at how advocates of  Open Education can use and 
reuse existing OER materials for training sessions cascading the OE message.

By exploring the huge variety of materials that exist, this webinar will 
demonstrate how your workshop can represent the OE agenda itself and act 
as an example of how reusing materials can be an effective and efficient 
choice when designing and creating learning activities.

Presenters: Alex Fenlon and Ella Mitchell

*2. Title: Creating and using video resources for language teaching.**
**(Open Educational Practice)**
**Tuesday 25 Nov  13.00 - 13.40**
The University of Warwick Language Centre and the Centre for Applied 
Linguistics are partners in an EU project called Video for All. The 
project’s mission is to support language teachers in all sectors in the 
exploitation of video for teaching. The Language Centre has been 
innovating in the use of digital media for some time and is the subject 
of a Jisc Digital Media case study. Video for All will produce exemplar 
practices for teachers which are searchable and available as Open 
Educational Resources. However, challenges are evident. The presenter 
has recently co-authored a submission to the Education Policy Analysis 
Archives (EPAA) for a special issue exploring “Models of Open Education 
in Higher Education”. This webinar will discuss some of the issues we 
are dealing with in the hope that the OER sig will be able to contribute 
to our discussions and offer feedback on our decision making process.

Key words:

Streaming media; creative commons licensing; repositories; repurposing 
and remixing; copyright.

*3. Creative Commons - understanding the basics (CC for Dummies)**
**Thursday December 11th 13.00 - 13.40*

Creative Commons (CC) licences are a simple way of retaining copyright 
whilst allowing others to reuse your work. The range of licences lets 
you define how others can reuse your material. This session will 
demonstrate how simple it is to use CC licences and what they mean in 

We will also introduce the UK repository JORUM, demonstrating how to 
apply CC licences to materials as you deposit.

Presentation: Vivien Sieber and Siobhan Burke
Moderator: Alex Fenlon
