Project Description

This project adopted the Open Educational Resources (OER) In the Workplace: An Intermediate Integrated Skills Textbook. The OER was designed to support learners at Canadian Language Benchmark 5 and 6, and aims to build both language and intercultural competence. It was adopted by seven part-time language skills classes at Bow Valley College.

The key knowledge transfer objective of the project was to produce a set of recommendations for the successful adoption of OER by ELL instructors in post-secondary contexts. A secondary focus was to collect feedback on the specific resource from learners and instructors.
