open textbook projects

Would you like to help create and publish an Open Textbook designed to meet the needs of History of Applied Science and Technology courses at colleges and universities around the world?

“Into the Unknown: Technology, Science, and Their Impact on Society” is in development by lead editors and authors at the University of Maryland University College and the University of North Dakota, and is looking for contributors. “Into the Unknown” is one of a handful of Open Textbook projects being undertaken with the support of the Rebus Community for Open Textbook Creation.

The editors are looking for chapter contributors on a range of topics — see the précis for the full outline. Chapters will be organized around the theme of the transformative impact of technological and epistemological changes on worldview and human behavior as they relate to everyday life and global choices.

Rebus will also be looking for volunteers for tasks from reviewing to proofreading in future.
