Just a reminder ....
Building an OERU will require capability development among faculty on open content licensing. FYI, with sponsorship from UNESCO, the OER Foundation will be hosting a free online workshop on Open Content Licensing for Educators scheduled for 21 - 25 March 2011.
Already 100 participants from 33 countries have signed up for the workshop.

Sponsored by UNESCO, the course materials were developed as a collaborative project by volunteers from the OER Foundation, WikiEducator, the OpenCourseWare Consortium and Creative Commons. The course will provide prerequisite knowledge required by educators to legally remix open education materials and help institutions to take informed decisions about open content licenses.
The Open Content Licensing for Educators workshop is scheduled for 21 - 25 March 2011 and will be presented asynchronously. Participants will need approximately 1 hour per day which they can allocate according to their schedules. The workshop is free and we welcome participation from all educators world wide.
Please forward this notification to your relevant line managers to distribute the invitation.
