I am exciting to be participating in Mid-Year Festival (MYFest), a three-month series of professional development events and activities hosted by Equity Unbound, June, July, August 2022. There is a fantastic lineup happening throughout all three months, on four themes:
- open educational practices, open publishing, and digital literacies
- critical pedagogy and socially just education
- community building and community reflection
- wellbeing and joy
There is a lot happening, and I can only attend some of the synchronous sessions due to time zone or other commitments, but there are a lot of ways to participate asynchronously as well. I’m also really impressed by the care that has been put into ensuring people in many different time zones can participate!
Some of the things I’ll be attending in June include sessions on ungrading, on entangled pedagogy, and open learning (among others!). I’ll also be participating in the daily create activities (well, maybe not every day, but will do at least a few a week), and in conversations with others on our blogs through the MYFest blog network.
Anyone can participate in this choose-your-own-journey set of events, and registration is pay-what-you-can.
I’m looking forward to connecting with many folks over the next three months, some old friends and hopefully many new as well!
