Jump to: navigation, search

Strategic goal

Foster innovation through pilot projects which demonstrate the viability and strategic opportunities for the OERu network

Strategic objective

Objective 1: Identify, design and implement OERu pilot projects to inform future improvements and innovations in the OERu model

  • Focus: Select and identify high priority pilots.

Strategic approach

  1. The OERu subscribes to a design-based research approach where pilots are conceptualised and implemented iteratively in authentic settings.
  2. Project steps are informed by a series of Probe (making a change), Sense (review), Respond (act) cycles so that each iteration is small enough to fail but when aggregated help to inform overall decision-making.

Key performance indicator(s) for 2015

(Provide recommendation for recalibrated target if necessary)
