Crowdsourcing a Library Publishing Course

January 28th, 2014 by  | 2 Comments

The PKP School is developing a new course on building library publishing programs, but instead of having one or two people create it, we’re opening it up for anyone to help crowdsource the curriculum.

Please drop by the draft syllabus and add your thoughts: http://tinyurl.com/leskmap

    Really interesting Kevin, thanks​!​

    I think that you would be really interested in some recent research that I have come across explaining crowds, open innovation, and citizen science.​ ​In particular I feel you may find these two emerging pieces of research very relevant:

    - The Theory of Crowd Capital

    - The Contours of Crowd Capability

    Powerful stuff, no?

    Thanks for sharing these! I’m looking forward to reading through them. Great to see the connection with my own institution (Simon Fraser Unversity).
