There are a significant number of post-secondary programs in Canada dealing with CED, co-operative and community development and local economic development. CCEDNet’s Practitioner and Sector Strengthening Committee compiled them into a handy list some time back.
We recently communicated with these programs as well as our many members involved in post-secondary education to draw their attention to the resources available on our website which may be of interest to teachers and students.
We have just completed a major update of our on-line CED Toolbox, which now contains over 600 resources organized into 38 themes and is keyword searchable. For student research projects as well as teachers seeking curriculum materials, it is a convenient first stop.
Since the fall of 2012, our national webinar series has offered sessions with leading Canadian figures in CED on current topics of most interest to our members. These sessions are free for members and cost $20 for non-members, but we are pleased to offer complimentary access to interested students who would be willing to share their reactions in a 400-600 word blog post on our website. Please contact us for more information about this offer.
Social Economy E-books
To conclude its activities last year, the Canadian Social Economy Hub published books synthesizing the major findings of the 6-year national research program and compiling the key products addressing public policy and the social economy. They are available as free e-book downloads.
Finally, of practical interest to many students, we post jobs related to CED on our website.
E-newsletters and Social Media
We hope you will find these resources useful, and invite you to share them with anyone who may be interested.
