Finding and Using OER
Mar 8 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Finding and Using OER

Whether adapting an existing OER, transitioning your course materials into the Open, or creating an OER from scratch, you will likely be using materials created by others. Because Open doesn’t just apply to the finished resource but all of the elements within the resource, it is important to ensure that everything you include in your OER respects licensing requirements. In this session, we will walk you through some strategies for finding open content to adapt or include within your learning resources, as well as best practices for attribution. We will also provide you with guidance for developing your own search plan and documentation, including a workflow and templates for curating resource details.

This session will cover:

  • Identifying open educational resource repositories and online spaces for finding content
  • Developing a search plan for finding resources across platforms
  • Developing a workflow for curating resource details for use in an open educational resource project
  • Identifying terms of use and licensing of resources and attribution practice

The 6R’s of Indigenous OER: Re-imagining OER to Honour Indigenous Knowledge and Sovereignty
Mar 10 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The 6R’s 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.
