Key points
  1. OERu partners retain decision-making autonomy regarding all aspects associated with local course approvals, assessment and credit transfer recognition.
  2. The partners actively involved with providing assessment services and exit qualifications for the OERu 1st year of study have collaboratively developed the OERu credit transfer and course articulation agreement template. These have been reviewed by the respective registrars.
  3. The agreement is based on the OERu credit transfer and credit accumulation scheme guidelines approved at the 2015 international meeting of OERu partners.
  4. At most institutions, the articulation agreement would be signed by the Vice-Chancellor, President or Chief Executive.
  5. As the OERu is implementing a phased launch of the 1st year of study, we are widening consultation of the credit transfer agreement to partners who may be interested in offering assessment services and/or recognition of transfer credit for designated 1st year of study courses.

Invitation to provide feedback

  1. OERu partners interested in providing assessment services and / or recognising transfer credit towards local qualifications are invited to provide comment and feedback on the OERu credit transfer and course articulation agreement template by 30 September 2017.
  2. In the traditions of our open planning model, we assume silence to mean assent.
