    1. Administrators who are charged with the development of open education policy may not fully understand the opportunities inherent in OER and OEP, partic-ularly for learners.

      The other key area of alignment: with learners.

    3. They clearly align the open education policy with the university’s mission statement and strategic goals.

      Institutional alignment is absolutely critical so the policies can be shaped for the institution and so leadership can provide aligned support.

      While I think this post does a good job of summarizing OEP, I'm disheartened to see the piece shaped so clearly from the perspective that OER is the necessary heart or foundation of OEP. From my POV, OER and open-licensing is a key infrastructural component, but is neither necessary nor sufficient in the larger and more important project to "reconceptualize and improve pedagogy and advance authentic, participatory, engaged learning" that this work rightly champions. Why must OEP always rest so heavily on OER? It's as if we have mistaken tactics for goals.

    1. Open Education

      I'd raise Open Education up from #10, but then again, I'm biased. I'd put it at maybe #7 and push the others down.

    1. This taxonomy serves as a useful guide to OER advocates seeking to diversify or tailor their outreach strategy.

      I would also stress that this taxonomy my describe where a person is at a given time, but I have also seen from experience that people move across (up?) this taxonomy, maybe starting out as a consumer and evolving into greater engagement. Not everyone starts (or ends) at the same place.

    2. benefits students

      AND faculty!!!

    3. the goal posts must be placed further than simply cheaper textbooks.

      For me, the goals should always be improved teaching and learning. Everything else is a means to these ends.

    4. Within this broader vision, significant cost savings to students are the least significant benefit of OER.

      Maybe least significant supporting the larger goals of improving teaching and learning, but perhaps most significant as a motivator to initiate change that leads toward those goals.
