Remember to add any issues that your group would like to be tabled at the CEOs meeting on the issues list.

Suggestions for Short Term Goals

  • Implement first-year to feel we’re moving forward (not spinning our wheels);
  • Remind partners of their commitment to produce at least 2 courses for OERu;
  • If partner is unable to produce 2 courses, find alternate way to contribute; perhaps partner could pay another institution to create their course;
  • Create a position to develop and co-ordinate partner relations to build/ strengthen community
  • Review current roster of partners to determine whose still involved/whose out

Suggestions for Long-Range Goals

  • Aim to develop year 2, 3, 4; with the objective to deliver options for credentials at each exit point (ie.) 2 year diploma (60 credits) in general studies or an associate degree in something
  • Develop a concrete plan to recruit students
  • Provide academic oversight to compile streams/themes of courses that have a sensible/useful outcome and to fill in gaps of missing disciplines (STEM) and other areas;
  • Develop a robust accreditation system to permit course or block transfer for students to achieve credentials;
  • Develop a concrete academic plan to co-ordinate future courses and programs and to work out any potential overlaps or difficulties for student completion
