Dave, here is an example of “content that gets created BY a course not BEFORE it.”

David Wiley recently had a wonderful post that cited an example of an open pedagogy project by Robin DeRosa ” My open Textbook: Pedagogy and Practice”.

The DeRosa highlights a process of creating engaging content with the added bonus of involving students in the creation of the textbook as an educational activity that is part of the course so that they become co-creators. Their active participation elevates and inspires an iterative effort to improve the content through the classroom discussions and their own reflection.
