  8. 8. EXAMPLE
  9. 9. IDEA ● Warsaw CC Summit 2011 ● OER on the radar of policymakers ● affiliates requested support ● current efforts decentralized and uncoordinated ● need a network to share and discuss ● need best data, toolkits, arguments ● let’s not miss opportunities that arise!
  10. 10. MISSION ● Foster the creation, adoption, and implementation of open policies that advance the public good. ● Do this by supporting advocates, organizations, policymakers, and connecting policy opportunities with those who can provide assistance.
  11. 11. PRINCIPLES ● ‘Open Policy’: publicly funded resources are openly licensed resources ● Default aim for policy licensing: Open Definition (with preference for CC BY and CC0). ● Do not recreate the wheel; leverage expertise ● Work from existing policy recommendations: Paris OER, BOAI, Panton Principles, Communia, etc. ● Free for anyone to join. Contribute and abide by mission and guiding principles.
  12. 12. WORK PLAN ● Link to, catalog, and curate existing policy resources. ● Build new resources and/or services only where capacity or expertise does not currently exist. ● Connect policy makers to experts. ● Provide baseline level of assistance for all opportunities. ● Share information with openly with members and the public, using open licenses (of course), multiple languages, transparent fashion.
