NSCC acknowledges we are in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded territory and ancestral homeland of the Mi’kmaq Nation. Our relationship is based on a series of Peace and Friendship treaties between the Mi’kmaq Nation and the Crown, dating back to 1725. In Nova Scotia we recognize that we are all Treaty People.
NSCC College 101: Study, Strategize and Succeed is an adapted version of University 101: Study, Strategize and Succeed by Kwantlen Polytechnic University Learning Centres CC BY-SA. The NSCC edition (created in June 2019) includes information and links to student supports specific to NSCC.
University 101: Study, Strategize and Succeed exists because of the contributions of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Learning Centre team. The source material depends heavily on Learning Aids developed by Alice Macpherson and Christina Page, as well as workshop materials developed by Marti Alger, Laura Aguilera, Kim Tomiak, Adam Vincent, and Lyn Benn. Megan Robertson provided invaluable feedback on the initial drafts of the project.
Rawia Inaim, Emily Tan, Vijaya Jammi and Anmol Mangat contributed to the visual and multimedia content in the book, generously lending their technical expertise. In addition to his graphic design contributions, Graeme Robinson-Clogg also designed the printable worksheet activities.
The KPU Learning Centre team are focused on student learning, development, and success. We hope that this project contributes to the academic success of the students were are privileged to support in our work.
This book was made possible through the support of a KPU Open Education Resources Grant. Many thanks to Rajiv Jhangiani and Caroline Daniels for their support in this project.
