Planning the OERu way

Open for business.jpg

The OERu is distinctively open and subscribes to open planning processes. The OERu Council of Chief Executive Officers recommended the development of a strategic plan at the inaugural meeting of the Council in November 2014. The OERu network is conducting our first open strategic planning consultation.

Strategic planning essentially aims to answer the questions: "Where are we now?", "Where should we go?", and "How do we get there?". We are now open for business to collectively answer these questions leading to the approval of the OERu Strategic Plan 2014 - 2017 at the November meeting of the Council.


Open organisation

The implementation of the OERu is a large and complex project. In order for the resulting answers from our open strategic planning exercise to be actionable and meaningful, the OERu has organised the process using a number of working groups recommended during the 2013 series of meetings.

This strategic planning portal will be used to host the open planning consultations. We invite you to join our open planning activities.


What we're planning to achieve
