Diversity at Work: Web-based Simulation Activities
To address the changing labour market needs of Alberta’s newest workers, skilled immigrants need easy to access resources that directly address language in the workplace to prepare them to more quickly and successfully move into employment in Alberta. Online resources can be flexibly used to support a range of language learning opportunities – from full-time English language programming to English language tutoring services.
This project developed an online resource that can be used by ESL teachers across the continuum of English language programming in Alberta, both for teacher-directed study and to support self-study. The online simulation activities will support adult ESL learners to practice making adaptive decisions in workplace communication. This practice supports these learners to build on their language proficiency, to communicate effectively and appropriately in the Alberta workplace.
