Ha, it’s very hard to think of this kind of work as ‘completely finished’ – even if you’re out of things to change or add, someone else might want to pick it up and do something to keep the book evolving. 5 years is a long time, though, so kudos to you for keeping on with the project (and all by yourself too)!
Great news about your coworker piloting course materials in the Fall. Student and instructor feedback from beta-testers can be invaluable, and give you some practical insight into how effective the book is at meeting the learning objectives. And a bonus: they become part of the community of practice around the book! This morning, I noticed a link to a collection of resources for collecting student and instructor feedback, if you wanted to take a look and pass along to your coworker: Open Ed Group Toolkit.
Would you want to collect feedback here in the platform, or would you want to collect responses via an annotation tool like Hypothes.is (available on Pressbooks)? Once you’ve clarified this, you could share a post in the Contributor Marketplace, with:
- Project name
- Fewer than 50 words about your project
- Roles to be filled
- Contributor requirements
- Relevant links (eg.: to the book)
This should give anyone interested in sharing their feedback some details about the book and how they can get in touch with you to get started.
Looking forward to seeing the call soon, and helping to amplify it in our channels!
