 This is a Blackboard Collaborate session.


The webinar starts at 10:05 a.m. and we kindly request participants to enter the webinar at least 15 minutes prior to the start time and no later than 10:10 a.m. 


Open Access and Open Data in the Classroom is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.


Open access to research and data allows research results to be freely shared among scholars and students with few restrictions. In this session, we’ll discuss the basics of open access and open data. You’ll learn how to teach your students to confidently locate, evaluate, and use open access research and data.


This workshop is an elective session for a certificate of completion in Fostering Proactive Learning Environments.


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
