Abstract: Indigenous Studies courses at two regional colleges are in a process of transformation. The transformation combines Indigenous knowledge through land-based learning and educational technologies to create a fusion of learning experiences for first and second year college students. The interconnected relationships between Indigenous pedagogy, educational technologies, open educational resources, and their representation of learning through the Mahara ePortfolio are explored. This poster session will map our process and progress through narratives and displays of the projects in progress across the two colleges and their points of intersection.
