Centennial releases OER textbook on global citizenship

August 27, 2021
Centennial College has released an updated Open Educational Resource (OER) titled Global Citizenship: From Social Analysis to Social Action. The 10-chapter OER is designed to provide students with information about global consciousness and how they can work toward social change. It includes interactive features such as Youtube videos and concept pieces, and considers the principles of Universal Design for Learning to accommodate learning differences. “The team thought critical thinking practice was just as important as updating the content, so that’s a strong element in this online textbook,” said Centennial professor Paula Anderton. “These are skills that will be useful to students well beyond this course.” The resource was created through collaboration between Centennial faculty, staff, and students, and is free for students.
