Pulling Together - OERs to Indigenize Post-Secondary with Dianne Biin

I talk with Dianne Biin about a project she led to create a series of open, professional learning guides to support Indigenization in post-secondary institutions. Dianne describes the work and collaboration that went into bringing those guides to fruition and discusses the decision to publish these guides under an open license. She also offers a critical perspective on openness in the context of Indigenous knowledges.
