The Femedtech Quilt of Care and Justice in Open Education

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Femedtech Quilt of Care and Justice in Open Education project began in mid-2019 and it was originally intended that the physical quilt would debut at the UK OER20 conference in April 2020. Whilst we had always anticipated that a digital version of the quilt would be part of the story, the importance of that element has increased significantly. Sadly the physical quilt has yet to make it's actual debut in the world, but the stories of the squares, and of the construction of the quilt can still be shared.

The FemEdTech quilt is a quilt of activism, and makes material concerns and practices of our community. Inspirations for this work include the Quilts of Gee’s Bend, Faith Ringgold, the Digital Embroidered Commons , Geek Art, the Quilted Banner displayed at https://britishtextilebiennial.co.uk/, Stitching the Border, The Colorful, Radical Quilts of Chawne Kimber, the LearnHigher Quilt and the Quilt of Comfort.

The quilt is made up of squares produced by open practitioners across the globe, and many of the personal stories behind each square have been recorded on the website. The quilt was always intended to exist in physical and digital form, to be as accessible and open as possible, so please do browse the quilt website, explore each section of the quilt, and read many of the stories of it's creation.
You may enjoy this video about the quilt that was premiered at the online OER20 conference.

Learning Outcomes: Explore the stories behind a collaborative quilting project that has spanned across the globe and networked a community of open practitioners.
