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.
