'Institutional strategies for OER' will consider a variety of current national and international open educational resource (OER) projects.  It will explore the obstacles the projects have faced, and the basis of their success, with a particular focus on the impact of institutional strategy.  The event will include an examination of the effect of government policy, and how it encourages or inhibits sector engagement in OER.

This event is aimed at those involved with policy and strategy related activities within their institutions.
