Community First: Open Practices and Indigenous Knowledge

Pine branches in background reads Community First: Open Practices and Indigenous Knowledge

As my capstone project for my time as an eCampus Ontario Open Education Fellow, I worked with Skylee-Storm Hogan to write a white paper on Open Education and Indigenous Knowledge.

This white paper looks at the current state of Open Education Resources in Canada and the integration of Indigenous Knowledge into OER. Spoiler – it is pretty sparse and there’s more work to do. We also provide some recommendations of how OER creators can think critically about sharing Indigenous Knowledge and work on building relationships with Indigenous folks.

You can see the complete report here.

Gettin’ Air with Terry Green

I was recently a guest on the Gettin’ Air with Terry Green podcast. Gettin’ Air is all about technology-enabled and open learning practices in Ontario Post-Secondary Education.

Terry and I had a great chat and we talked a bit about my work at the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre, Active History, the eCampus Ontario Open Education Fellows Program, and the Beyond the Lecture OER.

Basically, I gushed about all the open projects I have had the privilege and opportunity to participate in. Thank you Terry for the invite! This was a ton of fun to record. Check out the show notes fore more information.
