Enlisting students to edit a textbook

Christopher May believes that because students usually adress their work to their instructors, they lack experience in the writing process of wider publications. In May's course on Biopsychology, he wanted to engage students in a different way by enlisting their help for a project that went beyond the boundaries of the course. This is an example of what has come to be called Open Pedagogy. Within this practice, students are empowered to create value-adding contributions to work targeted to and tailored for a wider community.
