Heywire8 aims to establish a thriving national OER ecosystem. We arrange open think tanks where:
  • We reflect on why we are doing this and what's in it for us (value proposition)
  • We take stock of New Zealand OER initiatives and celebrate our OER achievements
  • We plan what we are going to do and how will we do it.

Following the WikiEducator traditions of thought leadership established with the Tectonic Shift Think Tank, we hope that our experiences with the Heywire8 Think Tanks will create a model for inspiring and informing other countries in building national OER collaborations. More importantly, we hope that Heywire8 will be an important catalyst to establish a thriving New Zealand community of OER content collaborators building on the solid foundations established by the national eLearning community.
