Review an Open Textbook
BCcampus is looking for qualified textbook reviewers from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon to review existing open textbooks in the B.C. Open Textbook Collection. Where appropriate, we are also asking faculty to consider adopting the textbook they review in their courses, should the textbook meet their need.
An honorarium of $250 will be provided to eligible and qualified individuals who complete, submit, and permit the open publication of the review, on an open textbook in the B.C. Open Textbook Collection under a CC BY licence.
