Workshop on textbook writing, August 25-31, 2019, Dublin, Ireland

Dublin Textbook writing Workshop

A textbook writing workshop was held in DCU Dublin, Ireland hosted by Dr Roisin Nash from GMIT. The workshop was designed to facilitate the coming together of partners form different universities who would co-write chapters and to further develop the draft textbook outline developed in Celle Germany. The chapters were further fleshed out through discussion and feedback from all participants as to what was the most relevant information to include. Some of the chapters were drafted during this period in Ireland and feedback provided from other participants.
