In June of 2014, 5 Geography faculty from 4 post-secondary institutions in British Columbia converged at UBC to create a first year regional Geography textbook in just 4 days. Supported by a librarian, instructional designer, illustrator, programmer, and a Book Sprint facilitator, we ended the four day book sprint with an open textbook created completely from scratch. Find out how we did it and what we learned by doing it.
