I have been thinking about what would be an interesting THATCamp learning/production that would be of broader benefit beyond our own DH work in our classes and communities. For this session, I would like to propose for our unconference a radical knowledge production that would be open access, freely available, and unblind peer reviewed edited eBook available via Amazon. If several of us have some coherence of ideas and praxis, then it would be possible to write up some of what we have already done (including materials already crafted for our teaching and/or research activity) and collect that together for a helpful collection of examples that would be widely available to faculty and students globally, digitally, and freely.
There will be a brief initial TALK presentation of no more than 10 minutes in which I will present my most recent book: 10 Strategies for Your Success in College. [I have set up the Amazon page to include a preview that gives you access to the front matter, including the brief and detailed Tables of Contents, along with the unblind “peer review” section of responses by various experts in the field.] This is my first experiment in more broadly accessible and available publishing models.
The potential and wholly insane goal of this session is to produce by noon on Sunday an eBook draft with the work of several of us: giphy.com/gifs/okkultmotionpictures-excerpts-xkmQfH1TB0dLW
