With funding from Alberta Open Educational Resources, Bow Valley College and NorQuest College collaborated to create Open Educational Resources (OER) in the form of e-textbooks. This partnership project produced two e-textbooks intended for immigrant adult learners who require English language programming:
- In the Workplace: An Intermediate Integrated Skills Textbook
- In the Community: An Intermediate Integrated Skills Textbook
These e-textbooks support language development within thematic topics relevant to economic and social integration needs of immigrants in Alberta. The e-textbooks target learning materials at Canadian Language Benchmark 5 and 6 incorporating four language skills, reading/writing and listening/speaking. These e-textbooks integrate language learning with Essential Skills and intercultural communication development. An instructor’s guide is included as an e-textbook companion resource.
