About this event

WELCOME

Hello :) Welcome, and thank you for your interest in #MYFest22

The "Mid-Year Festival" (MYFest) will be a “recharge and renewal experience” exploring:

  • open educational practices, open publishing, digital literacies,
  • community building and reflection,
  • critical pedagogy, socially-just education and
  • wellbeing and joy.

Equity Unbound will host this open education festival experience virtually throughout June, July & August 2022, co-created with co-organizers from around the globe (Egypt, US, Canada and South Africa).

MYFest emerged out of conversations among educators identifying a need an equitable, inclusive, and nurturing virtual learning experience in 2022. MYFest hopes to build community and foster agency, by offering a choose-your-own-pathway learning opportunity that is glocal - global, yet meeting local needs.

Participants in MYFest include higher education educators, K-12 teachers, educational developers of any kind (including learning/instructional designers/technologists), librarians, informal educators, coaches, facilitators, and open learners everywhere.

Choose-your-own-learning-journey! Offerings will be interspersed throughout the three months, with a "buffet approach" (choose sessions that interest you) and "NO FOMO" principle: we will avoid scheduling overlapping events, so you can attend as many as you want within reasonable timezone limits.

The event is "pay-what-you-can" and "attend-what-you-want/can.

Formats include one-off workshops, deep conversations in the style of Virtually Connecting hallway conversations (which try to capture the conference water cooler conversations often had in hallways between sessions), and longer "tracks" where people will work together over several sessions to solidify and build on their learning in community. While some events will be announced as synchronous sessions, there will also be asynchronous material and activities, as well as a curation of artifacts and video recordings.

Remember after that to choose the number of tickets you want for each type of ticket before you "check out".

If this cost is still prohibitive (e.g. if you do not have institutional funding), we still want you to participate!
