¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Thanks to everyone who has participated in the open peer review of our digital book-in-progress, Web Writing: Why and How for Liberal Arts Teaching and Learning, during the past month. Over 570 comments have been posted on the book to date, and two weeks remain until this phase ends on Oct 30th. Please email & share the link via social media and encourage your colleagues and students to join the conversation. We also appreciate all of the Dickinson College students who recently posted comments as part of Sarah Kersh’s digital writing course.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 This week, the Trinity College editorial team delivered a campus-wide presentation on the book, followed by a Q&A session with authors Jen Rajchel and Laura Lisabeth (via video conference), and an afternoon discussion of the manuscript with invited readers. See videos of the morning session on the updated event page. The lively conversations prompted me to *finally* finish and upload one of my belated essays for the Communities section, “Collaborative Writing, Peer Review, and Publishing in the Cloud.” Comments are welcome, as always.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Later this week, Web Writing will be the focus of the “Open Peer Review and Publishing” workshop at THATCamp New England (The Humanities and Technology Camp) at the University of Connecticut. This workshop offers a behind-the-scenes look at the CommentPress and PressBooks plugins that drive our WordPress software, and soon I’ll post a screencast video for those who wish to learn more but cannot attend in person. Admission is free — if participants post at least one substantive comment!
