An Examination of How Open Educational Resources Fall Short of Being Equitable, Inclusive and Disruptive
Dr. Jacquelyn Meshelemiah

The goal of open educational resources should be to create educational environments where all learners have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. In this session, the presenter will discuss the importance of creating open educational resources that are truly accessible, inclusive, and disruptive. She will demonstrate:
  • How innovations around open educational resources may actually perpetuate inequity
  • How OER facilitators can disrupt traditional ways of educating learners

Open Education Can Support "Land Back"
Jessie Loyer

Right now, Indigenous people are asking questions about how we can live well together and take care of each other; Indigenous youth articulate a simple call to action: "land back." How can open education contribute to "Land Back" and other Indigenous sovereignty movements? As well as an introduction to this concept, we will consider how Open Education creates tools in response to these issues, and ask how these tools might avoid tech solutionism and instead, might be used as tools for justice and liberation.
