The objectives of this session are to:

  1. Situate the OERu implementation within the context of maturity model phases of
    • Initial / Aware: (chaotic, ad hoc, individual heroics) – the starting point for use of a new or undocumented open project.
    • Repeatable: openness is at least documented sufficiently such that repeating the same steps toward openness may be attempted.
    • Managed: openness is quantitatively managed in accordance with agreed-upon metrics
    • Optimising: openness management includes deliberate principle/process/practice optimization/improvement.
  2. Discuss decision proposals for refining and improving OERu operations.
