Pushing the frontiers of “open education and research"

A session at JISC Conference 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

1:30pm to 2:30pm

How to exploit the new opportunities with appropriate licencing and risk management techniques

Adopting the right intellectual property rights (IPR) and licensing strategy is essential if colleges and universities are to take advantage of technological innovation and engage with other sectors such as creative industries. IPR and licensing issues will often present risks when creating and sharing research data or Open Educational Resources (OERs) for example. Yet, by improving training and using simple tools as part of an IPR and licensing strategy, colleges and universities can minimise risks and develop opportunities to support their staff working in teaching and research.

This session will explore how free, re-usable training resources and support tools dealing with IPR and licensing (funded by JISC and the Strategic Content Alliance) are reducing training costs, saving staff time and improving competencies to reduce IPR-related risks.
