New Delivery Model
for Graduate Certificate
We're thrilled to announce a new delivery model for our new Graduate Certificate in the Social Economy and Co-operatives. The blended-learning option, designed for working professionals, offers a combination of online courses and two short residency periods — one in September and one in April. The course includes both theoretical and practical, hands-on, experiential learning. It's the perfect option for practitioners looking for a deeper understanding of co-operatives or simply to upgrade their skills.

This new option is available beginning September 2016 and can be completed in only nine months of part-time study. Students from across Canada and around the world are welcome to apply.

The certificate is a joint offering of the Centre and the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy.

New Online Teaching Resources

We have a new web page devoted to online teaching resources on co-ops. Currently there are videos of seminars, lectures, and special presentations, as well as case studies and Centre booklets that lend themselves well to teaching purposes. The page is under development and we invite you to watch for links to many more resources available locally, nationally, and internationally.

Find out more about this new repository here.

Students are reminded to apply to participate in the Co-op Case Study Competition that will take place during the Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation conference in Calgary, 1 June 2016.
