The 6R’s of Indigenous OER: Re-imagining OER to Honour Indigenous Knowledge and Sovereignty

Date: Thursday, March 10, 2022
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm
Registration: https://events.ctlt.ubc.ca/events/the-6rs-of-indigenous-oer-re-imagining-oer-to-honour-indigenous-knowledge-and-sovereignty/Open

Education is grounded in Western notions of copyright law and ownership and it often has a goal of making all knowledge available for all people. Within Canadian Copyright Law there is tension with Indigenous Knowledges, Ways of Knowing and Being. Within the open education community there needs to be careful consideration for Indigenous Knowledges and self-determination, which are deeply rooted in community defined ethics and protocols, and that do not fit into ordinary academic contexts.

Join us for a chat with Kayla Lar-Son who will explore some of the concerns around OER and Indigenous Knowledges, while exploring tools, principles, and practices for engaging with Indigenous communities.

One of the priorities, when we are teaching, is to ensure that our course content and educational resources are accessible to all our learners, regardless of any physical limitations that they might have. In this workshop, we will talk about design practices that can help ensure the online course content and open educational resources are more versatile and useful for all students. Learn about useful processes, resources, and tips for getting started with accessibility. Designing for accessibility is a must and benefits all learners.
