This book was created by upper-year kinesiology students in a Fall 2020 seminar class entitled “Sport and Culture” at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. This term was a very different learning experience for all of us, as we had to do our courses online due to the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic threw a lot of challenges our way, but we adapted as needed, and we think our class was still very successful. KNPE 473 focused on looking at big social issues through a sport lens and then funneling out beyond sport to look at these issues from a broader sociological perspective. As a class, the 25 students, our Teaching Assistant, Niya St. Amant, and our professor, Dr. Mary Louise Adams, worked together to create learning objectives, grading contracts, and this book.
In this text we are going to explore the economic history and economic potential of Indigenous communities in Canada. What institutional arrangements hold them back economically and what institutions assist them going forward? What norms do Indigenous communities hold that inform their priorities and economic behavior?
This interactive exhibition features the preliminary research reflecting the diverse and inclusive practices of our cohort. Join us as we explore inclusive practices from spaces and communities to workplaces and systems. Our individual exhibits have been classified into five categories, inspired by the ‘Five Elements’ in Taoism. The belief is everything in the universe is made of five elements: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. These elements are interconnected and fluid. The focus is on ‘energy’ and ‘process’ and how all things can be inclusive and unified. In many ways, the journey to inclusion is reflective of this interconnected, fluid process.
This textbook is intended to provide an introduction to environmental science and sustainability at Trent. The textbook is adapted from the well-known Canadian text Environmental Science by the late Bill Freedman, a professor at Dalhousie University. The book is about environmental issues that are particularly important in Canada, and the ways they are being dealt with by governments and society-at-large. This book was written from the ground-up to provide Canadian information and examples. This national context is integrated throughout the text, along with North American and global data that provide a broader perspective. Special Canadian Focus boxes illustrate important examples of environmental issues in our national context. At the same time, Global Focus boxes enhance the international context for learning about issues, while In Detail boxes examine particular topics in greater depth.
The information in this short digest offers ready-to-go, step-by-step activities to complete relevant assessments that build students’ awareness of these key concepts and challenges them to build on their developing skills in the areas of research, writing, and digital citizenship. Faculty are encouraged to adopt the activities as is; adapt them to their own learning environments; and | or extend them to capture more skill development.
This pressbook is an Introduction to Infection Prevention and Control Practices for the Interprofessional Learner.
Experiential education, or learning by doing, takes many forms and experiential learning activities can be embedded in a postsecondary course, comprise an entire course, or serve as the focus of a complete term of study. Experiential learning can be introduced early on in a program of study to provide students with early exposure to authentic experiences tied to their discipline or related professions, built into the upper levels of a program to give students an opportunity to experiment with applying what they are learning in their courses, or set as a capstone experience to help launch them into the world of work prior to graduation.
This text is an introduction to Enterprise Management.

Using straightforward language and everyday object lessons, this book aims to make the basics of ventilation more accessible to non-specialist healthcare professionals. By the end of this book, learners will understand how ventilation works from initial patient assessment to weaning.
Tēnā koutou and welcome to Media Studies 101, the open educational resource for media studies studies in New Zealand, Australia, and Pacifica. We have constructed this text so it can be read in a number of ways. You may wish to follow the structured order of ‘chapters’ like you would in a traditional printed textbook. Each section builds on and refers back to previous sections to build up your knowledge and skills. Alternatively, you may want to go straight to the section you are interested in — links will help guide you back to definitions and key ideas if you need to refresh your knowledge or understand a new concept.
Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice is a fictional novel that looks at how an Anishinaabe First Nation, in northern Ontario, deals with an unknown event that leaves the community isolated, without power or phone service, and limited food sources as winter sets in. In 2018, Dr. Anna Rodrigues approached author Waubgeshig Rice with the idea of collaborating on an open educational guide for his novel, Moon of the Crusted Snow, when she discovered that OERs for books written by Indigenous authors were lacking. That collaboration resulted in an online educational guide launching in 2019 that was well received by educators across Canada. In early 2021, Waubgeshig and Anna decided to update the guide and, at that time, Dr. Kaitlyn Watson, from the Teaching and Learning Centre at Ontario Tech University, joined the project. As part of this update, themes from the original resource have been expanded and a new theme which explores connections between the novel and the global pandemic have been added.
Richard’s intention, after over 60 years of study and field work, was to publish his final thoughts on the subject and make them readily available for all scholars to use, free of cost, wherever they may live. Knowing that his time was limited, and that he would be unable to respond to reviewers’ comments, he chose, of necessity, not to submit his manuscript for peer review. It was his wish that the book be offered as-is.
In this book, I share with you what I have seen work for myself, for other poets, and for our students. The chapters will provide you with approaches to writing and reading poetry, suggestions for discussions and prompts for poems, explanations of key terms associated with poetry, some poetry history, and many poems to explore.
The following resource is a compilation of current literature that captures the importance and benefits of outdoor, nature-based play in early childhood education programming, and highlights the role of risky play in children’s development. Outdoor play in natural settings provides opportunities for both healthy development and is a potential means to address childcare shortages.
Psychology can be considered as the scientific study of brains and behaviours. This is an admittedly broad definition: in this course, you will have the opportunity to learn about just some of many ways that psychological science plays a role in our lives. Thank you for being with us as we begin to lay the foundation for further exploration into this discipline.
This edition represents the collection of seminal ideas that have shaped the postsecondary institutions in Canada. The chapters in this edition correspond to the animating ideas that are relevant in this era of increased participation of the public in tertiary education. The chapters that have been chosen to present the reader with the salient issues concerning functioning, accountability, policy framework, inter alia, constitute the sessions of a course on post secondary policy and governance offered to adults who either work at or aspire to work at universities and colleges. This text is interactive insofar as it offers stimuli for the engaged student to co-construct knowledge and their own gloss of pertinent issues. This text introduces concepts through various examples and contemporary cases and provides a plethora of resources primarily from Canadian context for further engagement. Finally, it offers an activity, through case studies, for students to play the part of various roles in the postsecondary sector to bring together the ideas explored in the text.
Why is writing important in science? It’s not enough to simply have an idea, or discover something. Credit for the finding will go to the person who first published the work. This is what motivated Darwin; more than 20 years after his data collection voyage he received a letter from another naturalist, Alfred Wallace, who had made similar discoveries and was developing a theory of natural selection. Darwin went into a writing frenzy and finished a quarter of a million words within one year. Scientific writing is different than creative writing, although both can be improved by storytelling. Writing for science requires clarity since the goal is to explain new discoveries or concepts.
