Geography Textbook Sprint

June 9, 2014 – June 13, 2014 all-day

BCcampus has a unique opportunity for Geography faculty to participate in an innovative open textbook project. We are looking for 6 Geography faculty to take part in a 4 day “textbook sprint” June 9-12 in Vancouver.

What is a textbook sprint?

A textbook sprint is a collaborative, face to face book writing event. For 4 days, 6 faculty, along with a number of support personal such as a graphic designer, programmer, facilitator, technical support and open educational resource librarian, will work together to create a 1st year Regional Geography textbook.

A textbook sprint is a facilitated event. This book sprint will be facilitated by Adam Hyde, a skilled and experienced book sprint facilitator who has facilitated the creation of over 70 books using the book sprint methodology.


Dates: June 9-12, 2014
Location: UBC Vancouver (Point Grey)
Because this will be an intense week that may involve working outside of normal business hours, accommodations & meals for participants will be included on site. Participating faculty will receive $2000 for their participation.
