Pictures, videos, music, and other types of media can help engage your class, but how do we find and use media in a way that sets a good example for students? As students navigate the confusing landscapes of copyright, citation, and media use in their course work, can we help them chart a path to success by engaging in practices they can emulate?

Creative Commons licenses make it easy to use media with confidence and avoid copyright pitfalls. This session will explore what Creative Commons licenses are, how they work, and how to find Creative Commons media. Come ready to talk about how you’re using media, how your students are using it, and explore the ways Creative Commons media can be integrated into your classroom.

Discussion Questions

  • What types of media do you use in your classroom?
  • Where and how do you search for media to use in your classroom?
  • How do you credit the media you use?
