I am taking a graduate class which is based on "notes" written by former students of the course years earlier.
This notes are a bad translation of a published book by a renowned author, and the class consists entirely on expositions from the students based on this notes and the book.
At the beginning of the course, the lecturer suggested that his idea was to collaboratively write some notes of the material covered in class, but so far, he has not given a single lecture, nor any help, insight or even references for the gaps found in the notes, everything has been done by the students. Now he is asking us to write all the expositions of the material we have found to fill the gaps in the notes.
I don't want to contribute to the notes because there is no guarantee that they will be published as a collaborative project instead of as something of the lecturer's authorship, but it might hurt my grades if I refuse to write something.
I am thinking in writing something to be included in the notes but posting it with me as an author in my blog first. Do you have any suggestions?
