As editor and coordinator of this project, Stuart MacKinnon would like to start by acknowledging all the time and effort that was contributed by the fourteen authors of this lab manual. We were able to put together the first edition of this lab manual on such a short timeframe only because of this dedication.
The fourteen authors of this lab manual are grateful to the following colleagues from British Columbian institutions who dedicated their time as subject matter experts and lab reviewers: Bernard Bauer, Wendy Hales, Trish Jarrett, Sarah Peirce, Matteo Saletti, and Stuart Toop. Nina Hewitt from UBC would like to thank Kelly Hurley for video editing assistance and Greg Henry for background context that guided lab 12. More broadly, we would like to acknowledge the BC Geography Articulation community for the encouragement during the project, and for setting the stage from which this entire project started. Also, we would like to thank Erin Fields and Amanda Grey for the essential librarian, copyright, and Pressbook support that was provided throughout summer 2020. The first edition of the lab manual could not have come together without the two of you. We are also appreciative to all the instructors who are, and will be, using this lab manual for any continual feedback they provide.
For the creation of the second edition of the lab manual, we would like to thank Chani Welch and Karla Panchuk for their work on the revisions. Specifically, we would like to recognize Chani Welch for her time editing the labs and instructor notes for content, consistency, and effectiveness; and we would like to recognize Karla Panchuk for her time reviewing all the first edition labs and for her editorial support based on her instructor-based Pressbook expertise. We would also like to acknowledge Katharina Holt for her diligent work identifying and addressing accessibility considerations throughout the lab manual.
