iSkills: Picture this! Using Creative Commons images in your teaching

Using images in your teaching, whether on slides, handouts or videos, can really enhance the student’s experience and making learning easier. However, most images are subject to copyright, and there can be a lot of complications using copyright material in your teaching. This session will focus on how to find and use images not subject to copyright restrictions such as those in the public domain or under creative commons licences. We will cover searching for images with Google image search, Bing image search and a selection of other useful image websites.

Subjects to be covered include:
