and how the work should be

Take a look at the
Activity – Creative Commons Licences
Working in pairs, look at the different kinds of
Creative Commons licences available. Decide
which kind of licence you think is best for your
school, and why.
Alongside the guidance documents, there are six
supporting documents, with workshop activities,
and step-by-step walkthroughs to help staff find,
use and make open educational resources.
Resources are packaged in PDF and editable
bundles for quick download, and are available

Leicester City Council has given
permission for staff at community &
voluntary controlled schools in the city
to openly license the educational
resources they produce in the line of
What does the permission mean?
• “Educational resources”
• “Openly licence”
• Why do we need a local policy in place?
• What about voluntary aided schools,
foundation schools (or trusts), and
• Recognising current practice
• Digital literacy
• Empowering schools and staff
• Promoting & sharing great work
• Ensuring Public Value
• Equality of access to learning for all
• Open & collaborative practice
Who owns Intellectual Property Rights
to the materials you produce?
• Moral Rights
Key questions for schools
• Do staff know about open licensing?
• Are all staff aware of the new permission?
• Which is your schools preferred open licence?
• What resources should/could schools and staff
• How staff be supported to share work openly?
Key questions for School Governors
• Is the local authority the legal employer of your school staff (this will be
the case for community and voluntary controlled schools)? If so, have they
got an OER policy in place?
• Do you have a school OER Policy in place? If not, you can review and
download model policy documents.
• Do staff at your school know about open licencing? Find out if they are
aware of OER and how to find and use them. If not, the OER Guidance for
Schools is a great place to start
• How can staff be supported to share their work openly? Sharing work
under open licence is a great way of promoting your school, and
showcasing high quality work. Staff may not want to share work openly – if
not, find out why. Your school community should be proud of its work.
• Find out about the types of open licences available, and the benefits and
limitations of these. The Understanding Open Licencing document
outlines these. The governing body should play a key role in deciding
which type of licence the school recommends for staff.
Clarity of Licensing
Page 41 of the OER Guidance for Schools will help you here. The model policy document also has a recommended
example of what your licence and accreditation should look like. The Creative Commons licence selector can be
useful, but you may want to add information or edit fields.
Activity: practical issues
A staff member applies to you to because they have accepted a commercial offer to
sell materials they have developed for their class.
How do you respond?
A staff member has created some excellent resources. You suggest they openly licence
and share their resources more widely. The staff member refuses point blank.
Why do you think they might not want to share their resources?
As Head of Department, you are looking to embed open sharing of educational
resources in order to support professional development and collaboration.
What key practices would you implement to support staff in sharing their resources?
