- Delivery and evaluation of our first undergraduate subject for OERu – “Model United Nations”.
- Development of 3 new subjects for delivery in 2016 – towards the Graduate Certificate in Global Citizenship.
- Collaboration with other partner North-West University to find ways to share development of open-materials for a Research Methods subject, or collaborate on components which can be assembled in different ways to meet similar but not identical Research Methods subjects for local needs and also inclusion in upcoming OERu courses.
- Participate, review and evaluate a range of OER offerings such as the the “Digital Skills for Collaborative OER development” program for potential local re-use as sustained staff development activity for staff with an interest in or allocated to projects to develop online/distance programs or open/community facing website resources. (An inclusion in the newly approved Technology Enriched Learning Strategy.)
- Liaise with staff developing online resources and face-to-face workshops for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with regard to any re-usable OERu subjects or processes that might be useful.
- Develop an Open-Education Policy and Guideline, that will enable/support and guide a range of open-learning initiatives, including OERu subject and course development, including formalising a local Approvals process for new MOOCs/open-courses.
- Open Subject and course development – as a new open, online pathway to further formal study at UOW. The LHA Graduate Certificate in Global Citizenship is our first attempt to create a new pathway to study which is online and flexible and open to anybody around the world.
- Building staff skills and organisational capacity for open and online/distance course delivery as significantly different to the blended learning to support face to face teaching which characterises much of our current eLearning effort and experience.
