MEDEV is holding an open educational resources (OER) 'licensing policies' workshop (inclusion of embedded third party rights), 10:30-14:30 Friday 22 June, JISC, Brettenham House, London, WC2E 7EN, sponsored by the PublishOER project (JISC OER Programme Phase 3). Led by MEDEV, Newcastle University, PublishOER partners include Elsevier, Rightscom, JISC Collections and the Royal Veterinary College (with Nottingham Veterinary School).
This workshop seeks to develop new ways of complementing OER resources with high quality embedded third party published content by investigating and testing new business models. It aims to deal with high-level strategy issues (rather than implementation/execution issues such as specific clauses or terminology). For more information about PublishOER please see http://www.medev.ac.uk/ourwork/oer/publishoer/

The field is changing rapidly, driven by user communities and by technological opportunities; your experience and views would be fully attributed and invaluable. In return, we hope to ensure a stimulating session for everyone who attends and an opportunity to shape national policy.
A discussion paper will be available in advance. It will include a high-level discussion of the issues and a brief report on the issues actually encountered by the project team members developing prototype resources.

This workshop is designed to help determine what licensing parameters would be appropriate to the type of resources being developed by bringing together independent experts to provide a strategic perspective and insight into key licensing issues. We are especially interested in policies that would help ensure the widest availability of complex digital resources that contain content from different sources.
