Writing collaboration

a ‘work in progress’


with one comment

This website / paper was initially put together for Ian Cook et al’s presentation at the Doing collaboration differently: challenging an unequal academy workshop at Leeds University on January 12th, 2009, organised by Shona Hunter.

It was designed both to serve as an alternative to a powerpoint display on the day – this was not a great success! – and to provide a space for discussion after the event. It is presented, and will evolve as, a collaboratively written paper on collaborative writing. That’s the idea.

All of those involved in the collaborations described have, as much as is possible, been contacted and asked to comment on the paper as a whole and on the parts in which they are mentioned. Each page has a comments box at its foot for suggestions and feedback through which a number have had their say about the collaborations described.

Anyone who comes across this paper is welcome to add their comments and, thereby, to become a co-author.

There are no plans to turn this into a published paper. It will remain, grow and change as an ongoing online experiment in collaborative writing. If you want to reference it, try…
