Do you teach communications or media studies at the introductory level in a tertiary institution in Australia, New Zealand, or the Asia-Pacific? Are you frustrated with the textbooks currently out there? Are you interested in creative commons or OER?
We are currently seeking partners to be involved in a Creative Commons-funded project looking into the process and practice of ‘hacking’ a textbook in the humanities. The goals are to produce a rigorous, useful, and accessible textbook that contains regionally-appropriate concerns and topics, and to document the steps so as to provide a production model that others in the future can follow to produce more open textbooks.
The project will run from late September to early December, 2013. If you are interested in being involved, please send us an email.
