Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Open Education Events

Members of the Ontario Tech community are invited to attend events and programming hosted by the Open Education Lab throughout the year to learn about open education and how they can contribute to the movement!

The OER Incubator is a 6-week program designed to help participants learn more about the curation, evaluation, and design of open educational resources. By the end of the program, participants will create a vision and plan to integrate open educational resources into their own teaching practice!

Who can participate?

The incubator is open to anyone in an instructional or facilitation role (e.g., TA, instructor, advisor) in the Ontario Tech community. Regardless of your teaching area, the incubator will provide guidance on curating and creating OERs.

Where and when will the incubator take place?

The incubator will run weekly on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, beginning on Friday April 26. Sessions will be delivered online through Google Meet.

A schedule and preview of topics is available below, but is subject to change.
