This picture was created by Juhan Sonin and is entitled “My current resume on Wordle”. I liked the cloud illustration highlighting and representing some of the main categories and tags related to résumé writing so I have chosen it for my Course description page. Its objective is to spark learner interest in résumé writing and ignite writing skills creativity by illustrating that ideas are often interconnected and interwoven.
I’ve also chosen and uploaded on my WikiEducator pages the following pictures:
- “Job resume with Glasses by Flazingo Photos“, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.5, which I found on Flickr. This is a merely illustrative photo, which I thought was appropriate to include on the Introduction section of the course Home Page.
- “Wikimedia Commons Pencil icon by David Peters“, licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0, I included in the section: Benefits of learning how to write a résumé of the course Home Page. The purpose of this image is to convey that the focus of this course is on improving EFL learners’ writing skills.
My take-away lesson from this section the DS4OER course has been to become aware of the importance of a proper attribution when working with open content materials. In my academic papers and presentations, I have always attributed the authorship of these materials in a visible way. However, I have neither added links to these images nor have I included their types of license. I have come to realize during this lesson the importance of attribution and corresponding ethical practices involving OER images for instructional material purposes.
