Writing a Book on a Wiki

Working Topic Ideas

  • Practicing What We Preach -- Implementing professional development with principles of good teaching practice

Writing Concept:

  • Use a protected wikispace; Allow all to read but not edit
    • Generate interest in the book before it is completed/published
    • Those providing comment or collaboration will have a stake in the book and may, in turn, generate more interest among others
  • Invite readers to comment in the Discussion space
    • Give attribution for ideas/contributions used from Discussion comments
  • Invite a select few as Collaborators
    • Give edit access
    • Named as collaborators when published
  • Blog when new concepts/ideas/sections are added
    • Drive traffic to the wiki
