UTAS Policy Enabling Open Education

UTAS has developed and implemented a number of supporting strategies and policies to support the development of Open Educational Practices by UTAS staff.

  • The development of Open Educational Practices is part of Divisional planning.

    Ensuring that UTAS staff are  well supported to take up Open Educational Practice is part of the S&E Division's five year plan.

  • Embracing Open Educational Practices is a UTAS curriculum principle.

    The use of Opening Educational Practices to "enhance and extend curriculum offerings through being a member of a vibrant community of practice sharing high quality resources" is provided as the University's tenth curriculum principle.

  • Using Open Educational Practices counts towards teaching performance expectations.

    Teaching staff are also encouraged to use and develop a range of learning technologies and online resources such as MOOCs and Open Educational Resources and this is formally recognised within the University's Teaching Performance Expectations.
