Outline Audience Issues

Yes I agree with Marion. Start with the basics, targeting an individual.. but it makes sense to move to the organisational level for a number of reasons:

  1. The individual may need to argue reasons why the want to contribute OER and their reasons might need to be express to organisational management.
  2. The individual might be a consultant, change agent, librarian or other and again needs resources for proposing the organisation wide OER
  3. The individual may wish to first consider the organisational implications before adopting an OER stance individually.

And the the handbook should move completely into the organisational level with example IP Policies and copyright statements, employment contracts and other management document templates ready for use. Yes, I think that should be in the scope of the hand book, and I think it is easily achievable. You can have my organisation's policy's for a start!

So, in short:

  1. Basic
  2. Individual/independent/user/author
  3. Employee/academic/administrator/librarian/etc
  4. Organisation/department/faculty
  5. Institution/managers/contracts/HR/IT
  6. Global/consortium/multinational collaborations/etc

This seems like a natural progression from micro to macro to me...
