Going Open - the challenge of change
The implementation of an open education policy will involve a significant culture change and over time it will be likely to provoke difficult questions. In particular you may expect to have discussions over intellectual property rights of individuals and the organisation, and for the possibility to be raised that some materials may not to be openly licensed as the contents have a marketable value. By using the present guidelines you will be able to anticipate that discussions will arise and treat these as opportunities to maintain the dialogue about openness in your community.
Answer the following questions, and find out, where your organisation or you as teacher and trainer stand with relation to "open education readiness". Your answer will lead you to our recommendations and practice examples to learn from and move on to the next level of openness.
