Open Access/Open Educational Resources - October 25, 2021

Open Access/Open Education Resources

Monday, October 25, 10:00am - 11:00am

Open Access and Open Educational resources both support and expand research, scholarship, and affordable educational opportunities. Each has a different focus with Open Access centering on scholarship, including publishing and presentations, and Open Educational Resources concentrating on a wide variety of materials for teaching, which range from textbooks to test banks.

Join us and learn more about Open Access publishing and how you can utilize Open Educational Resources to support your curriculum while saving students significant textbook and materials expenditures. You will also learn about how you can obtain a professional development certificate by completing our *New* Open Access and Open Educational Resources Canvas short course and take a look at our guide:

Copyright/Creative Commons Licenses

Wednesday, October 27, 1:00pm - 2:00pm

While we all have a basic understanding of copyright, the vast amount of information available makes it confusing. Understanding copyright is important for your author rights, as well as others. As open access and open educational resources grow, it is important to understand your rights and how to use Creative Commons licenses to designate the global use of your creative resources.

Join us for a copyright, fair use, and public domain refresher and gain understanding of how you can apply Creative Commons Licenses to your works. See our Copyright guide for more information:

"Antarctica: Seasons of Water and Ice" Reception - November 4, 2021

Public Reception: "Antarctica: Seasons of Water and Ice"

Thursday, November 4, 5:00pm - 7:00pm @ John C. Pace Library, 2nd floor

Join us for a reception for "Antarctica: Seasons of Water and Ice," an exhibit featuring the work of UWF Professor Dr. Wade Jeffrey. The artwork was created during two oceanographic research trips to western Antarctica during 2019. The images from these expeditions present a contrast between the long days of summer and very short days of winter, and show some of the diversity of Antarctic vistas, from gray to blue skies, and open water to icebergs and sea ice. The artwork will be on exhibit October 23rd through December 12th.

This event is presented by the UWF Libraries; The Art Gallery at UWF; UWF Department of Art and Design; UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities; UWF Center for Environmental Diagnostics and Bioremediation; and the Reubin O’D. Askew Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies.
