A comprehensive series of seven eLearning modules were created that are available to post-secondary institutions across Ontario. These micro modules are open source and stamped with an Ontario creative commons licence, ensuring they are available and accessible to marginalized students. Institutions have the ability to customize the micro modules to align with their unique needs.
Since its launch in April 2022, the “EDI Work-Integrated Learning Modules for Equity-Deserving Students” has been downloaded 20 times, highlighting its impact and reach.
Overall, the learning experience has the capacity to increase equitable access and inclusivity to all learners wishing to engage in WIL. In doing so, it makes a direct contribution to the development of student employability skills, enriching the Ontario workforce.
