Executive summary

We will cement our OERu partnership by completing the equivalent of two subjects. The existence of the subjects will enable us to launch a university-wide awareness-raising program about OERu and OEP in general. With the recent commencement of a new Director, Learning Resources, recruited from the UKOU, we will better position our OERu offerings within the new CSU Online brand (and possibly a CSU Open sub-brand). We will additionally contribute to national initiatives around OEP.
