By taking on roles we will be able to think about open education from different perspectives and evaluate the coverage of the handbook. We will also be thinking about the future of the handbook and how it can be embedded in the community.

The resources from the session are available as a PDF.

We will hear more about the other tables in due course and make sure we share all our learnings from the day.
