The 6R’s of Indigenous OER: Re-imagining OER to Honour Indigenous Knowledge and Sovereignty
March 10 @ 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 POSE open 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.
Kayla Lar-Son is Metis and Ukrainian Settler, originally from Treaty 6 Territory. She is currently the Indigenous programs and services librarian for the Xwi7xwa library at UBC and the program manager librarian for the Indigitization program. Kayla is also a co-host for masinahikan iskwêwak the Book Women podcast.
The Program for Open Scholarship and Education is a four-month flexible and blended program jointly presented by the UBC Open Working Group, the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology and UBC Library. The program will help educators gain foundational knowledge of open scholarship, open education, and open research. Register for POSE here.
