How we work


We do not follow or seek to implement any one specific methodology. We do not believe that there is one ready-made method or process which will fit all our projects and products, and solve all our problems.

Instead, we help OU curriculum production teams to improve how they work by experimenting with multiple new practices and techniques. We are developing a structured approach to experimentation, learning from success and failure, and stabilising and scaling new production methods and techniques.

As we learn together from this experimentation, we seek to develop better ways of working for the whole OU community to share, to support our targets for student satisfaction, staff motivation and financial sustainability.
