In the Workplace and In the Community

Today we’re revisiting two resources from Bow Valley College and NorQuest College that are now available through BC Campus as Open Textbooks.
Bow Valley College and NorQuest College in Alberta collaborated to create two new e-textbooks for immigrant adult learners who require English language programming. They are open educational resources and freely available.
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.
These resources can be used as online textbooks with interactive activities or downloaded and used as print textbooks.
