This workshop is open to all. Graduate students register through GradProSkills. Everyone else can register on this page.

Learn how to get, collaborate on, and share research or creative works with Creative Commons (CC) licences. Researchers frequently use these licences to enable open scholarship or open science processes. Whether you need images for a presentation, are seeking information for your own work, or want to mix sounds into new music, Creative Commons licences enable you to access and share with people around the world. In this workshop you will find out what the Creative Commons is and how to use CC licences. We will practice working with CC content and look at the ramifications of applying different licences to our own work. We will also explore some useful tools for finding CC-licensed work.

In this workshop, participants will:

1. Understand how Creative Commons licences function in conjunction with copyright and open scholarship processes

2. Discover sources of open access, CC-licenced creative or research works

3. Experiment with using CC licences, including proper attributions
