Have you ever needed guidance on how to apply Creative Commons licensing to a new early grade reading program teacher’s guide? Or wondered how to properly attribute text adapted from an existing resource for your student reader?
If you have experienced these or similar issues related to the publication of early grade reading materials, the Reading within Reach (REACH) initiative invites you to attend the upcoming training “Guidance and Best Practices on Using Creative Commons Licensing for Early Grade Reading Program Resources.” During the event, participants will receive information, guidance and resources regarding Creative Commons licensing and USAID policies for open licensing of early grade reading program materials. Presentations will be followed by participant discussion and experience sharing.
The training will take place Monday, December 11, 2017 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (EST) at the URC office at 5404 Wisconsin Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD, 20815. The event will be available as a webinar for people who are unable to attend in person.
Presenters will be Professor Michael Carroll, Director, and Meredith Jacob, Assistant Director of the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at American University; Gayle Girod, Chief Innovation Counsel for the Global Development Lab, and the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment; and Rebecca Rhodes, Acting Team Lead, USAID Reading Team. The training will be facilitated by Aristarick Lyimo, Training Specialist, and Alison Pflepsen, Reading Program Specialist, of REACH.
The training is organized by Reading within Reach (REACH) on behalf of the Global Reading Network. REACH is supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by University Research Co., LLC (URC).
