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

March 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


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.

This event is part of Open Education Week at UBC which runs March 7-11, 2022.
