OERu/Strategic plan 2014 - 2017/Strategic plan 2015 - 2017/Annual report 2014
Annual report 2014
A key recommendation arising from the proposal for action "Getting it done" at the 2nd meeting of anchor partners in Canada, was to establish institutional responsibility beyond the individual course contributions to progress completion of key components and processes required for the successful implementation of the OERu. The need for a multi-year plan with concrete targets was highlighted to hold the network to account for the implementation of agreed targets.
During 2014, the OERu network trialled an organisational model comprising a number of working groups and established an OERu Management Committee to provide oversight and coordination of activities in progressing identified operational priorities. A number of partner institutions including Charles Sturt University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the OERF, Thomas Edison State College, Thompson Rivers University, the University of Southern Queensland, the University of Tasmania and the University of Wollongong took on additional responsibility to convene the activities of the working groups supported by volunteer members from across the OERu network.
The OERF, through the strategic planning working group identified a number of operational priorities for 2014 with corresponding targets and commenced an open consultation process to develop a multi-year strategic plan for the OERu.
The subsections of the 2014 annual report have been prepared by the conveners of the working groups focusing on three components: the aims and objectives, main outputs and recommendations for 2015 and the future.
