This webinar focuses on an example of capacity building opportunities offered by the LIDA 103 course of the OER Foundation on “Open education, copyright and open licensing in a digital world”. Developed by one of the New Zealand UNESCO Chairs for Open Education, headed by Dr. Wayne Mackintosh, for the English-speaking world and Common Law countries, it has been translated into French by UNESCO and adapted to cover Civil Law countries by L’Université Numérique, the French Digital University. It is not a law course per se, but a course that opens the minds of learners and authors to the opportunities offered by various dimensions of “openness”, such as open access, open educational resources and enables them to address the legal complexity faced by government bodies, schools and higher education institutions when they implement open education.
- It is a free online capacity development course
- It provides free access to an online test, whereby successful learners have the opportunity to gain a Competency certificate
- It covers both Common Law and Civil Law countries
- It relies on a documented process, that is replicable in other languages, starting with Portuguese and Spanish.
