Abstract

In this work in progress study and course redesign initiative learner perspectives on a blended online and land-based learning Indigenous Studies course at a regional college are explored. The inclusion of Indigenous pedagogies through an Indigenous resurgence paradigm and digital learning technologies inform a course design mix. The design incorporated Mahoodle and the creation of a land-based learning experience with an Indigenous land-based survival expert and knowledge keepers. The online and land-based interconnected aspects of the course were represented by learners through their ePortfolios. Our interim discoveries will focus on the relationship between Mahoodle and Indigenous land-based learning, while identifying the issues that presented challenges and solutions from the pilot course delivery. In this best practices session, we plan to show video clips of the land-based experience and ePortfolio examples so they may be seen and understood in the context of the project.
