Welcome to OERu: Developing an Agenda Together, and welcome (back) to SCoPE seminars! After a hiatus from our monthly seminars we are excited to kick off the academic year with this important step in the implementation of the OERu.
About this seminar
During this two-week seminar we will review progress of OERu implementation and discuss development of the agenda for the next meeting of OERu anchor partners. This seminar builds on earlier SCoPE discussions from 2011:

I'm glad to be able to listen in. I'm looking forward to learning how things develop. I was a very enthusiatic Wikieducator, but lost my way when the OER university initiative began as it opened doors for universities, but closed doors for me as an independent educator. I will be lurking if that's acceptable as I don't represent a university.
Nellie, if you don't represent a university in this discussion my guess is you're not alone! Welcome back to SCoPE, and as you know, lurking to learn is always acceptable here. Heck, I do it all the time :-)
Hello Sylvia and all.
I am a day late and a dollar short, but here finally (OK only a week late).
