The role of the Reference Group is to:
  • provide input into the development of a Metadata Code of Practice for application of metadata across the education sector
  • support the work of Standards Australia's IT-019-1 Sub-committee in developing this Metadata Code of Practice
  • report to AICTEC on progress of the development of this Code of Practice.
