OER Soup_open education conf
The theme of the OER20 conference, which was moved online due to a concern over too many good people being in close proximity to each other, was Care in Openness.

However, one of the best parts of the whole show was the Quilt of Care and Justice, crafted by Frances Bell. A real quilt! Obviously, in these strange times, real things have been largely banned, if it involves more than two people getting physical. But the quilt going underground only made it stronger.

For most, that's a new thing - but there are those that have been practising this art for a long time. And as ever, it's not about the technology, but the pedagogy... This is a visual remix of a …
