Hi Jonathan, thanks so much for joining and welcome! We’d love to hear about your experiences creating these textbooks. We don’t have any math/computer OT projects just yet, but will definitely notify you when we do.
Hi @tulrich, Welcome to the Rebus Community. We have several projects that would be a match for your expertise, particularly when we get to the proofreading and image sourcing processes. @zoe, @apurva or I will reach back soon with specifics!
Hi Beth, thanks for joining the Rebus Community! It sounds like you have some great experience to offer. You can take a look at our current Humanities projects here. We don’t have an Art History project as yet, however it seems like a good topic as we expand our stable!
@nobuko.fujita That sounds like a great project, case studies and examples would be a wonderful way to engage students. We love hearing about the different ways faculty get their students involved, and look forward to hearing more about your project as it progresses!
Hi @weiszr, We’d be looking for a roughly 500-word firsthand narrative sharing your experience with the project. Ideally it would talk about the logistics of the open pedagogy assignment and how it played out, as well as lessons from a faculty point of view. For instance, how did this advance the goals of the course or help the students achieve the learning objectives? Would you do a similar project again in the future, and what would you do differently? What were the challenges. Which of those might be more unique to a more quantitative topic, and so forth. Let us know if you would be interested in contributing in this way!
Hi Katie, thanks for joining us! You might be interested in our history of science & technology project – it covers a wide range of regions & eras, and (I think) overlaps with archaeology and anthropology in places. And if you do decide to start your own open textbook project, we’d love to find ways to support you! We have a full stable at the moment, but are hoping to expand soon.
Welcome, Claire! I see you’ve put your hand up for our peer review working group, thanks for getting involved. We look forward to hearing more about what you’re up to at FHSU and finding ways to work together.
@lizmays Hi Liz, Thank you for the welcome and for the information about upcoming events and past sessions. I will definitely check the links. I did not know about the working groups so thank you for this as well. In working with Open the past few years, I have learned that I make assumptions about what faculty know about open issues. Some ideas on how to start conversations with faculty about open textbooks would be great!
