Indigenous Knowledges and Open Education Symposium

October 22, 2021 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Open Education (OE) Working Group invites you to join the inaugural Open Education and Indigenous Knowledges Symposium to learn about and discuss the intersections between open education and Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing.

Many conversations around OE focus on a Eurocentric framework of copyright and intellectual property rights that are sometimes in tension with Indigenous knowledge systems. The goal of the Symposium is to center Indigenous ways of knowing, culture, experiences, and worldviews within our advocacy work.

This event is organized by the Students’ Union Okanagan and the UBC Okanagan Open Education Working Group, in partnership with Indigenous Programs and Services, the Centre for Teaching and Learning, and the UBC Okanagan Library.
