The LinkedUp Project will be creating an Open Education Handbook as one of its deliverables. The first step in this process is a one-day (10am – 4pm) booksprint to be held at C4CC, London on Tuesday 3rd September. During the booksprint participants will be involved in group discussions, constructing the table of contents, agreeing on chapter themes, negotiating with others on concepts and hopefully coming up with some agreement on basic definitions!
Note that most booksprints aim to write a book in under 5 days! We’ll be taking a slightly less pressurised approach and will be drafting the handbook over a longer time period of time (delivering a final version next year). The handbook will also become one of the first activities of the soon to be launched Open Education Working Group.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
If you are interested in open education and would like to be involved in this important initiation event then please register on the EventBrite page. Places are limited.
Note that all those who take part in the handbook booksprints will given attribution (using names and affiliations) in the about section of the handbook.
