Strategic goal

Achieve a fiscally sustainable and scalable OERu network

Strategic objective

Improve community engagement for OERu planning, implementation, technology innovation and technology integration

  • Focus: Design processes and support mechanisms for the establishment and operation of Academic Volunteers International (AVI)

Strategic approach

  1. Incremental design is the preferred modus operandi to ensure agility of the OERu network.
  2. Open communication with a transparent public record of decisions aims to build community and facilitate long term sustainability.
  3. To scale capability development the OERu advocates a "pay it forward" model, where the beneficiaries of new OERu skills are encouraged to repay their learning by helping a new community member in the future.

Key performance indicator(s) for 2015
