Summer 2019 Updates

Are you still using the Media Innovation & Entrepreneurship open textbook in your course? Please take a moment to let us know by filling out the form below.

Also, the arrival of summer means it’s time to update this living, dynamic text for Fall 2019.

If you would like to suggest changes or updates to a chapter this summer, email us and we’ll review your recommendations as we prep to release v3.

A few changes we know we’ll be making (and please let us know if you can help!):

  • Adding chapters on design thinking and entrepreneurial ecosystem building campus infrastructure (thanks Ann Grimes, Geoffrey Graybeal and Michelle Ferrier)
  • Updating the chapter about changes in the journalism industry to include additional, current examples (thanks Mark Scarp)
  • Adding some formative quizzes and interactive elements to help students self-reflect on what they just read (please let us know if you can help)
  • Improving the glossary now that we have glossary capability

If you are interested in contributing to this CC BY-licensed open resource or to this process, or if you have suggestions on how to improve the text, please let us know (email Liz or Michelle).

Also, we’ll be reconvening the community of practice in a call later this month.

This will be an opportunity for adopters and contributors to have a conversation about potential enhancements we might make this summer and also to build a collaborative to share other resources across institutions.

The call will be held June 25, at 2 p.m. EST. You can join the call day of at

We hope to see you there!

Michelle & Liz
