Dear Blend-Onliners,

The following was posted to the Educause Openness Constituent Group, and I'm re-posting here, as it may be of interest:

2012 is a significant year for open education. We are celebrating 10 years since UNESCO adopted the term "Open Educational Resources" (OER). In joining the global celebrations, the OER Foundation in collaboration with the COL OER Chairs and Creative Commons Canada will host a free OCL4Ed workshop.

When: 20 June - 3 July 2012
Where: Online
Cost: Free
Registration: Open
Twitter Hashtag: #OCL4Ed

Open content licensing for educators (OCL4Ed) is a free online workshop designed for educators and students who want to learn more about open educational resources, copyright, and Creative Commons licenses. OCL4Ed is an international community learning opportunity, with participants from 48 countries already signed up.

Reserve your seat today for this free online workshop which is scheduled to coincide with the UNESCO OER World Congress.
