Join the OpenLab Team, City Tech faculty and staff, and CUNY colleagues at our next Open Pedagogy event, where we’ll be discussing copyright and attribution in open digital pedagogy. Working with and amongst our students and colleagues via digital pedagogy raises exciting possibilities for sharing, remixing and evolving the pedagogical work of the university. In addition, it raises important questions about intellectual property, scholarship, pedagogy, and the nature of digital communication. During this event, we’ll have a discussion about how to best cultivate an ethic of sharing and reuse while creating a community around attribution.

Our conversation will be guided by the following questions:

  • What is a Creative Commons license and how does it differ from traditional copyright?
  • What are the ethics of sharing and using the materials we produce as a community of scholars and educators?
  • What does Creative Commons and open licensing mean for our pedagogical practices?
  • How do we communicate to our students that their work is also intellectual property, to which the ethics of copyright, attribution and sharing apply?
