My Co-op addresses a full range of co-operative education pre-placement and integration topics for students in a single, easy-to-read volume.

My Co-op employs an activity-based approach. Instructive text is presented as a series of short readings accompanied by graphics and illustrations. Chapters include key terms, detailed definitions, in-text questions, and an icon system that relates readings to corresponding activities and their accompanying line masters. Line masters and assessment tools are available as a consumable workbook or as a free download to adopters.

  • Engaging Student Activities: Accompanying activities aim to address higher-order literacy, numeracy, thinking/inquiry, problem solving, research, and group work. In addition to exploring the text, students create their own content through research and other experiential learning opportunities.
  • Soft Skills Development: Students are encouraged to develop and exercise various positive attitudes and behaviours in the workplace, such as personal responsibility, self-discipline, self-motivation, and personal hygiene.
  • Foundational Resource: My Co-op is a new and easy way to ensure consistency of delivery and to save time preparing and delivering a co-operative education program.
