I like the idea of a 'patchbook', which draws on the idea of a quilt, in which each contribution is distinct, as opposed to a wili, where the contributions are melded into a single whole. In this patchbook 26 authors create "a quasi-textbook about pedagogy for teaching & learning in college. Each patch of the quilt/chapter of the book will focus on one pedagogical skill and be completed and published by an individual faculty member." There are some good momements, for example, George Fogarasi saying "friends don't grade friends" or Katrina Van Osch-Saxon pleading "for educators to re-think the need for students to memorize all of the pertinent basic knowledge in a course."
