Friday, November 19, 2010
2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
11:00 AM - Noon PST
Charles Lowe and Pavel Zemliansky,
Editors of Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing
an open textbook series for college first year writing classes
Charles and Pavel will discuss the principles behind and production processes of Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing. Writing Spaces is a peer-reviewed, edited collection of individually authored essays on writing. The traditional proposal and peer review process employed by Writing Spaces not only gives the college teacher-as-author a line on her CV, one that should be more favorable to tenure and review committees than some other models of open textbook production, but also serves to build the ethos of the project within the open textbook movement.
