The first phase of the open textbook project kicked off on Monday, April 15th, 2013 with the release of a Call for Proposals looking for BC post-secondary faculty and graduate students to review 10 existing open textbooks. These textbooks align with the top 40 subjects in the province (based on course enrollments).

An honorarium of $250 will be provided to individuals who review one of the 10 open textbooks, which have been created by faculty from around North America and have been released under Creative Commons licenses which allow for reuse and modifications.

Details on how you can be an open textbook reviewer are available on the Phase 1 Call for Proposals page. The call closes on May 24th, 2013.
