Target Audience: Faculty wanting to practice open pedagogy or involve students in building open textbooks and ancillary materials.
Target Release Date: Fall 2017
Making Open Textbooks With Students will be a short handbook for faculty interested in involving students in making open textbooks or similar open educational materials.
We are still looking for a few contributors, namely:
- Students who have worked with faculty on open textbook projects who are willing to write about their experiences in a 300- to 500-word sidebar.
- Faculty with relevant experience who could contribute example assignments, ancillary resources that have been tested in the classroom, a short writeup about their classroom open textbook project, or similar.
Get involved by joining the discussion below!
As the project progresses, we will also need collaborators to help with:
- Accessibility checks
- Formatting in Pressbooks
