a good write up about a Book Sprint we did for “Hybrid Environments for Universities: A shared commitment to campus innovation and sustainability.”
In the beginning of March 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Europe, nine international experts from Germany, Sweden, Finland and Netherlands met in an education pop-up space from Steelcase Education to discuss a research question and to write a book in five days. The result of this joint adventure at Technical University (TU) Berlin is the handbook and manifesto “Hybrid Environments for Universities: A shared commitment to campus innovation and sustainability.”
The book was written in a collaborative process, a Book Sprint, that captures the knowledge and expertise of several writers who share authorship and a collective voice. The sprint process relied on high commitment from all the participants, strong facilitation, a dedicated working space supporting agile working and a fast publishing process.
