A nice guide written for Arts disciplines.Thank you to John Casey for bringing it to my attention. It appeared in the Arts Libraries Journal. It is openly available under a CC-BY licence in the ALTO learning and teaching repository

 

http://alto.arts.ac.uk/904/

 

Abstract

This article provides an introduction to the use of the Creative Commons licence system and sets it in a historical, economic and political context. It is written from the perspective of involvement in open educational projects in an Arts university that has used the licences. A description of the fundamental features of the licences and their uses is given together with an outline of how the Creative Commons organisation works and its strategic aims. An assessment of the usefulness of the licences is provided together with a description of the challenges faced in dealing with low levels of legal awareness amongst academics. Practical advice and sources of further information and guidance are offered to help readers implement the licences locally.

OER Synthesis and Evaluation / Motives and tensions in the release of Open Educational Resources

In recent years, Open Educational Resources (OER) have been widely promoted as a way of ensuring universal access to education, supporting social and economic development and intercultural dialogue. The 2012 Paris OER Declaration recommended that states foster awareness and use of OER and countries such as the Netherlands, US, and Brazil are developing national OER strategies and policies. However, uptake of OER has been slower than hoped; to realise their oft-articulated benefits requires a much better understanding than we have at present of the factors that influence the OER lifecycle.

Tree Sitting – A Rebuttal to Clay Shirky

Tree Sitting – A Rebuttal to Clay Shirky | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it

Clay Shirky observed at the Awl last week that he and I disagree over whether the trend toward MOOCs in higher education is reversible—he says no, and he says that I say yes—and I suppose he’s right, so far as that goes. But I don’t think that goes very far.There were a few cheap shots about “teamsters in tweed” that were worth noting. A lazy trope that depends on the belief that unions are essentially illegitimate, selfish, and retrograde, it’s a sly dig that lets him insinuate without directly asserting that anti-MOOC academics are self-interested and conservative luddites, that we are somehow positioning our own self-interest in opposition to the deep public spirit of Silicon Valley. It also passes along the insinuation that academics are powerfully unionized, which is far from the truth; as Jonathan Rees points out, would that we were more like teamsters.

 

But I’d just like to note the cheapness of that critique before moving on: as if self-interest is some unique academic perversion, as if Shirky himself lacks bread and a knowledge of which side it is buttered on, and—most importantly—as if the drive to make money off of students isn’t the only reason Silicon Valley is getting on the MOOC bandwagon. Because, of course, this was my original critique of Shirky’s language of “we educators”: he rhetorically inhabits that position in order to pooh-pooh its legitimacy as an opinion. He signs up for team education in order to run up the white flag on our behalf. Thanks, but, please, no thanks.

A really daoist response in some ways. The notion that the "useless" tree is quite useful in the overall and the long term, serving a purpose in the rhizomatic interconnection of cycles.
