A Strategic Planning Process Model for Developing Open Educational Resources

Shu-Hsiang Chen, Jaitip Nasongkhla, and J. Ana Donaldson

Abstract—Strategic planning processes are considered to be a powerful tool and guideline for helping all levels of Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to develop their strategic plan, and to find their competitive advantage and place within their environment. To date, very little research has been conducted on the strategic planning to support and foster open educational resources (OERs) development. The objective of this study was to develop a strategic planning process (SPP) model for Thailand HEIs based on the concept of university social responsibility (USR) for developing OER. The final strategic planning process (SPP) model was verified by subject matter experts, focus group interviews, and the results from the Index of Item-Objective Congruence (IOC) evaluation from higher education executive administrators. The development of this SPP Model serves as a toolkit for mapping out a strategic plan along with activities for aligning the concept of USR to the outcome and creating an OER strategic plan as output, which together can connect strategic planning to universities’ sustainable effectiveness and success in the long term.

Index Terms—Strategic planning process model, SPP model, open educational resources, OER, university social responsibility, USR.
