Resources for Canadian Medical Trainees

Long Description:
The first comprehensive open textbook on Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology and Prescribing Competence for medical students across Canada. There is well documented evidence that knowledge and appropriate prescribing of medication reduces patient mortality and disability, and improves the cost-effectiveness and sustainability of the healthcare system. There is a large learning gap amongst medical students, strong interest in a national resource amongst medical school faculty, and the lack of any national online resource. This open textbook provides access to these resources in a coherent, organized manner.

The goal of this OER is to support newcomers to Canada who are entering college institutions. When international students come to Canada, not only must they learn the new content for their particular program, but they must also learn new behaviours, such as studying in a new language, adapting to new customs, and communicating in new ways. This OER is designed to provide newcomer students with the skills and strategies they will need to adapt successfully and fully integrate into the Canada college system.

Grammar to Accompany Deutsch im Blick
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This book is a distinctive Grammar edition to “Deutsch im Blick“, an OER textbook housed at the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL) at UT Austin and authored by Dr. Zsuzsanna Abrams. This book was developed having in mind university students who speak English as their first language. Although this material was developed for university students, we believe that its content is also applicable to high school students, adolescents, and adults learning German. This Pressbook and “Deutsch im Blick” take the place of a traditional language textbook by providing varied activities that facilitate the students’ progress in linguistic skills and cultural understanding. Our approach to language instruction is interactive, conversational and fundamentally task-based. We see grammar as a means for enabling effective communication, which is why our explanations of grammar are concise and not overly technical.

Digitally accessible, visually appealing courses

Short Description:
This book was written to help educators and instructional designers to design visually appealing courses (and curricular materials) that are also digitally accessible. I argue that applying graphic design principles reduces barriers, lowers cognitive load, and improves learning. I created the Graphic Design E-Learning Checklist to help instructional designers improve the look and feel of their courses while designing for inclusivity at the forefront.

Long Description:
In Graphic Design for Course Creators you will read about how to use and apply graphic design theory to improve the look, feel, and usability of your courses. You will also learn how to improve the digital accessibility of your courses while making strong design choices backed by learning science. For example, by learning the differences between images that aid in instruction and those considered seductive details, you will improve the learning experience of your students. Additionally, tips on selecting and combining colors will help you communicate appropriately while learning how to use color contrast will ensure more learners can access the materials created. Graphic Design for Course Creators contains checklists and questions to review for every chapter so that you can confidently make design choices your educational stakeholders will love.
