This textbook has been a long-drawn-out labour of love for many of us, and we’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge everyone’s contributions to this project. First and foremost, a huge thank you to the TRU Open Education Development Grant for supporting this project through two rounds of funding. Without funding, our writing retreats, editing retreat, and resource development would not have happened. We would also like to thank the Open Education Working Group for supporting open education development and initiatives at TRU. By supporting the development through an open education coordinator, open learning editors, and instructional designers, our project was enhanced by Pressbook and H5P workshops. A special thank you to Brenda Smith, Ken Monroe and Michelle Harrison for facilitating our writing sprints and the foundational development of this project.
This textbook would not look and feel the same without the support of our dedicated Open Learning editing team: Dani Collins, Chris Ward, Susan Filyer, and Carolyn Hawes. Thank you so much for polishing our thoughts and ideas, and for keeping us organized throughout this project.
A very special thank you to all of our authors for your dedication and contribution to this textbook:
