    Through a collaborative and open process, we are hoping to build not just an educational resource, but also a community of practice around this book.

    To that end, we will be holding a preliminary chat for authors Wednesday, May 10 at 12 p.m. EST. You can join by clicking this link.

    In this call, you’ll have a chance to:
    *talk about your plans for your chapter
    *hear about other authors’ plans for their chapters
    *ask any onboarding or logistical questions

    If you’re not able to attend, follow this thread–we will post a recap of the discussion here.

  • @zoe Thank you very much for the invitation and looking very much forward to joining you and all authors in the preliminary chat on Wednesday, May 10.

    @markpoepsel I saw your comment in the chat as we were finishing the call. Don’t worry. Rebus will coordinate a peer review process around the book!

  • @lizmays Cool. I see it in the agenda for July…just wondering how it’ll work. Sorry to get ahead of myself. I’ll author a chapter first and then we can figure out how to get it peer reviewed. :D

    The video of that session (unedited for expediency) is available to watch here.

  • @lizmays Thank you for recap, and sorry that I wasn’t able to make call, I have the June 7th on calendar, thanks!

  • administrators

    @poetabook You are welcome! We’ll look forward to chatting then, and please feel free to raise any questions here in the meantime.

  • @lizmays Hi all I’m attaching a draft of the Resiliency Sidebar for Chapter One: In addition to overall feedback on whether this is even on the right path at all, I had a couple questions: 1) re the tone - It is more introductory/motivational than instructional, but I got the vibe from call that it could be conversational, but just checking if this is suitable tone, or if should be more scholarly 2) I was wondering if it would make sense to link some of the concepts to other sections of the text that will explore those in much more depth 3) Again, assuming its on right path, what do you think about the third section being from the voice/perspective of an “innovation veteran” student, like 5 tips for surviving failure… Thank you all in advance![0_1496090604186_ResiliencySidebar.docx](Uploading 100%)

    Hi @poetabook, @michelleferrier and I will take a first read of this and get you feedback asap. (One note: For some reason, it seems like the file did not upload. Could you please re-upload? As long as it is under 2 MB, it should work. If it is over, you can email it to Michelle and I as a Gdoc. 1. The notion of how conversational to be has come up for several, and we will try to provide clarification on this once we get a sense of where most pieces are falling on the spectrum. 2. Yes, that is a great thought! 3. Love this idea. Go forth! So that we can provide more specific feedback, can you try to reupload the file? I apologize for the inconvenience.

  • @lizmays no problem, error code says I don’t have enough privileges to perform that action, but I will send shortly as google doc, thanks

  • administrators

    @poetabook Thanks so much. Our developer thinks this may be a bug. Apologies again for the inconvenience.
