Many conversations around open education (OE) focus on a Eurocentric framework of copyright and intellectual property rights that are sometimes in tension with Indigenous knowledge systems. In this session presenters will discuss an ‘in the works’ edited volume which centres in Indigenous ways of knowing, culture, experiences, and worldviews within the work of open education pedagogy and advocacy work.
