Digital Foundations: Creative Commons

Have you ever wondered if you have the right to use an image in a presentation or on a website? Or maybe you’ve wanted to adapt an existing piece of music, change up a design, or include someone else’s infographic in your paper? Creative Commons licenses can help answer some of these questions by clarifying the intentions of authors for how they would like their work to be shared, used, and reused by others. This workshop will cover the basics of Creative Commons licenses—what they are, how to find CC-licensed material, and how to license one’s own work.

Led by Talea Anderson

Digital Foundations Workshops

The CDSC offers a series of intensive workshops for WSU students seeking hands-on instruction in the foundations of digital literacy. Facility with digital tools has become a fundamental prerequisite for joining any contemporary profession and, as with reading and writing skills, college instructors across the disciplines expect students to arrive on campus with a foundational level of digital literacy. Such expectations mean that many students never receive explicit guidance in how to write emails, organize files, or engage in online communities. These workshops fill that general education gap by helping students cultivate essential skills and develop good digital habits for the future. We intend the workshops to serve all interested students, regardless of major or prior experience. Workshop sessions will be 30-40 minutes, with 20-30 minutes for questions and one-on-one assistance. Grad students, staff, and faculty are also always welcome.
