Since the start of TU Delft OpenCourseWare as a small pilot project in 2007, 10 years ago, the TU Delft open policy has seen a strong development through open education, open research, open software, open science and open valorization.

In these 10 years we have published 200 OpenCourseWare courses, 68 openMOOCs, many videos on iTunesU. We started multiple project on reuse of OER in blended courses, produced open textbooks and many more.

Around the same time as OpenCourseWare the library started with promoting open access publishing. In 2016 44% of peer reviewed articles of TU Delft staff was open access. In 2016 this resulted in an open access policy that states that Open Access publishing is mandatory for all (co)authors at TU Delft.

In 2017 TU Delft incorporated Openness as a core value into its long term strategy via the TU Delft Strategic Framework 2018-2024 and institutional educational vision. This marks the adolescence of openness in our university, and acts as an important lever to fully mainstream openness in all departments and fields of our university.

During our presentation we will highlight the road we’ve taken so far and the lessons we learned along the way. For instance we will illustrate: how we organized our support organisation, which enabled us to mainstream the publication of educational resources institution wide. How we upscaled the initiative to maturity and bigger scale activities, resulting in the establishment of the Delft Extension School and incorporation of openness in institution wide policy. How the open approaches taken since 2007 has had an impact on TU Delft Campus education and on a global society

And we will share how we have been and are planning to operationalize openness towards open mindsets and open approaches in the primary processes of our university.
