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.
