EPFL promotes the unrestricted sharing of research findings by its scholars, aligning with its commitment to Open Science. Within the Center for Digital Education, we are of the opinion that Open Education has the potential to contribute significantly to Open Science. Through (video) lectures and (interactive) exercises, we can effectively disseminate the insights gained from scientific research, enabling researchers to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to utilise open data sets and tools. Furthermore, we are confident that, given the current technological landscape, a substantial portion of our educational activities can easily extend beyond traditional classroom settings with minimal additional effort. This is why we advocate for the accessibility of publicly funded education to the broader public.
This hybrid workshop will demonstrate Open Education and open a discussion on how you can open up your teaching materials, including videos, quizzes, slides, and other resources, by licensing them under Creative Commons. We will cover legal and technical considerations, using third-party materials, quality management and maintenance of open resources, and adopting interoperable formats, among other topics.

We encourage you to bring your own course materials - start with your MOODLE page, or your mediaspace.epfl.ch channel - to discover the difference between viewing rights and copyrights, what to consider when selecting a CC license, etc.
