The OER by Discipline Guide: University of Calgary developed by Libraries and Cultural Resources staff supports faculty in locating quality open educational resources in their subject area by providing curated lists of OER organized according to the faculties, departments, and subjects at UCalgary. The Open Educational Resources within this guide have been evaluated by faculty, librarians, and other relevant parties prior to inclusion. The lists of OER in each discipline are not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to provide a sample of the key resources available. This guide will be updated periodically as new resources are identified, evaluated, and adopted.

Canadian Settlement in Action: History and Future book cover

Canadian Settlement in Action: History and Future

CC BY-NC-SA (Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike)  42 H5P Activities    English

Author(s): Alexandru Caldararu, Julie Clements, Rennais Gayle, Christina Hamer, Maria MacMinn Varvos, Lynn Sutankayo

Editor(s): Nicholle Carriere

Subject(s): Society and culture: general, Migration, immigration and emigration, Ethnic groups and multicultural studies, Racism and racial discrimination / Anti-racism, Social discrimination and social justice

Publisher: NorQuest College

Last updated: 21/02/2024

The OER textbook is an introduction to key issues in the settlement sector rather than a comprehensive exploration of this dynamic and multifaceted field. Maria MacMinn Varvos situates the history of settlement services in Canada, including a look at delivery models and perspectives. She also explores the relationship between literacy levels of women and its affect on their settlement. Alexandru Caldararu introduces and situates social justice and anti-oppressive practice in settlement worker practice. He also presents a detailed discussion on climate migration and its implications on settlement. Christina Hamer presents types of migration-related trauma and the mental health challenges many newcomers face before arriving in Canada. Rennais Gayle discusses the settlement experiences of older arriving immigrants, particularly focusing on family dynamics. In her chapter, Julie Clements provides an overview of how settlement workers can effectively navigate intercultural communication contexts. Lynn Sutankayo delves deeply into how related concepts in settlement act as a conduit towards further understanding of issues in gender, sexuality, and culture. While the textbook chapters can be read in the order presented, each chapter presents a unique issue and can also be enjoyed in non-sequential order.

The Language of Medical Terminology is an open educational resource (OER) that begins with a focus on the practice of breaking down medical terms into their component parts. This is practiced through the beginning of the book in order to develop a solid foundation on medical term parts, their meaning and how to understand the full meaning behind medical terminology as a whole. The OER then continues onto the use of abbreviations, anatomy and physiology, body systems, common tests and procedures and finishes with content focusing on medical professionals in health care. This OER serves to provide the basic knowledge necessary to work in the health care setting.
