Maada’oonidiwag – Sharing Anishinaabe pedagogies into a Western OER- presented by Jamie Kechego and Lorie Stolarchuk

March 4, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 6:20 pm BST

Aanii and Biindige! Sharing personal Anishinaabe perspectives when weaving Indigenous Ways of Knowing into Western ways of teaching and learning was central to creating a module within an Open Educational Resource (OER).

This session explores lessons learned while creating the OER module on Indigenous Pedagogies, which included videos, images, text, and exercises. OER Videos were filmed in many settings, including a visit to a Reserve and Residential School memorial. The videos are embedded into an eCampusOntario project on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) – Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA). Universities Canada’s principles on Indigenous education recognize that universities across Canada must commit to closing the education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

Out of 13 principles developed in close consultation with Indigenous communities, principle 11 states that universities need to “recognize the importance of providing greater exposure and knowledge for non-indigenous students on the realities, histories, cultures and beliefs of Indigenous people in Canada.” Mino-bmaadizin (the good life) was tied into the module’s design, knotted with references to nourishing learning spirits beyond the four walls of a classroom by including land-based and place-based learning. Teachings from the Medicine Wheel framework embraced the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental dimensions. Jaimie shares her personal connection to the Indigenous Pedagogy principle featured in each video. The goal as we advance would be to braid other Indigenous voices and connections to the various topics for future open educational videos.
