Collaborative Book Creation

Peeragogy In Action podcast, Episode #4

Peeragogy is all about forming a collaborative community with diverse skills interested in learning how to do something, and doing it! The Peeragogy Handbook, started in 2012, is one such project.

About this episode

Our panelists, internet communities pioneer Howard Rheingold and higher-education expert Bryan Alexander, focus on collaborative experiences that can help authors and publishers along their own publishing journeys. In particular, their experiences can inform the project that began when we published the Peeragogy Handbook v1 in 2012 (now in version 3). 

Howard and Bryan respond to three main questions: 1) What collaborative processes did you use in writing the book? 2) Who were the people who helped you bring your books to life? 3) How can your experiences inform the next editions of the Peeragogy Handbook?
