Open Education Handbook Booksprint

5,336 views

Published on

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!
