What

The OpenMed Training Week will be introduced by the Opening Keynote: Why Open by Juan Carlos De Martin, co-director of the Nexa Center.
The module Open Licensing and Copyright in Education prepared by Politecnico di Torino will be presented by Eleonora Bassi.
This module introduces the concepts that lay the foundations of Open Educational Resources: Open Licensing and Copyright. Initially, the essentials of copyright will be examined in order to better understand the concept of free licenses and public domain. A focus on the Creative Commons Licenses will follow, studying the basic conditions and how to combine them for creating the proper CC licenses to use. The final part of the module will be devoted to the sibling artifacts of the OERs: open data and open scientific publications. They will be introduced in the general frame of Open Science, the new paradigm that combines the ontological openness of Science with the new opportunities given by the Internet and the digital technologies.
