Creator Fest



At Creator Fest educators from across the country work together to build the future of education. Alongside their peers, instructors cultivate the open educational resources that they need for their classrooms. As an OpenStax event, educators who have adopted one or more of our textbooks will benefit most from Creator Fest.


Creator Fest is an annual (un)conference hosted by OpenStax. Unlike traditional conferences, we bring together the OpenStax user community to collaborate and put knowledge into practice. Instructors develop ancillary resources like test banks, problem sets, and enhanced Powerpoint slides. We provide structure, support, and post-project editorial review to equip. The resources created are then shared with the entire educational community.


Each year, Creator Fest takes place in Houston, Texas. Most activities will be held at the Bioscience Research Collaborative on the southern edge of the Rice University Campus. The venue is just steps away from the world’s largest medical center and a quick metro-rail ride from the museum district and downtown Houston.


The next Creator Fest is scheduled for March 24 - 27, 2020. Take a look at the schedule here.
