Would you like to help create and publish an Open Textbook, “An Introduction to Philosophy,” and at the same time contribute to developing a new, collaborative model for publishing Open Textbooks?
“An Introduction to Philosophy”, in development by lead author Christina Hendricks (University of British Columbia), is one of a handful of Open Textbook projects being undertaken with the support of the Rebus Community for Open Textbook Creation[su_tooltip title=”Rebus Community” content=”The Rebus Community is a project of the Rebus Foundation, a Canadian not-for-profit with funding from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.”]*[/su_tooltip].
We’re looking for people to volunteer time, with a variety of tasks envisaged, from chapter contributions, to proofreading and a host of other things. There will be space for everyone from tenured faculty to students to the general public to participate in the project, though chapters will be written by faculty or graduate students (preferably PhD students) in Philosophy.
