The Project team attended Ascilite 2013 at Macquarie University in Sydney and presented a concise paper and a Symposium on the GDinHE module. In the Symposium we invited attending participants to consider three of the challenges in developing and delivering a truly collaborative Open Educational Module.
The participants identified potential barriers and possible solutions to each of the three challenges. Their views were captured in the following tables.
Challenge 1: Alignment and compatibility of institutional curricula models (including credit levels and teaching periods)

Challenge 2: Enrolment and Assessment of ‘open access’ versus institutional participants and ensuring equal access to institutional owned technologies and licensed resources

We invited the Symposium participants to be part of the first pilot running of the GDinHE module and we look forward to continuing the discussion.
