I'm editing a series of open textbooks for Philosophy courses, and am learning a lot along the way. Here is a blog post about some things I've learned about accessibility and publishing open textbooks on the Pressbooks platform: blogs.ubc.ca/chendricks/2020/0

I'm the series editor for a series of for Introduction to Philosophy courses, and we now have two books published (out of nine planned)!

Philosophy of Mind: press.rebus.community/intro-to

Ethics: press.rebus.community/intro-to

Looking for chapter authors for some parts of an Introduction to open textbook I'm helping to edit. Also looking for editor for Aesthetics section. Open textbook is free of cost, licensed to allow re-use (CC BY). This is a volunteer activity; we have no money, sadly, but a lot of enthusiasm!


My uni has a small grant program for open textbooks and other open educational resources. I was privileged to be able to sit on an adjudicating committee and see all the interesting proposals! Results publicized soon. So excited to see these projects come to fruition.
