Tony Bates: Writing an open textbook: Teaching in the Digital Age

Tony Bates: Writing an open textbook: Teaching in the Digital Age | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:


I’m writing this book more or less on my own, although I do have some support from an instructional designer and I’m anticipating getting some help with marketing once the book is complete. I’m also getting a lot of useful feedback, because I am publishing as the book is being developed (the first five chapters are already available here) and also publishing excerpts in this blog.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This article is a report on the process of writing an open textbook. Those who know Tony Bates, know he is an insightful and skilled writer with great experience as an online teacher and distance education researcher.  


For insights into teaching, open education, distance learning... any kind of learning, this article is a doorway to some thought provoking work.
