How is Pearson Supporting Organizational Behaviour Courses in Canada?

Here at Pearson, we are in a constant process of adapting and updating our resources to best suit educator and learner needs. We understand that today’s students are learning in different ways than in the recent past, and that this can have an effect in the classroom, whether in-person or virtual. To help students improve their learning experience and to give instructors access to the very best teaching tools, we’ve developed new and dynamic resources for your OB courses! 

Please explore the information below to learn more about Pearson’s work in Organizational Behaviour education. 

Introducing Organizational Behaviour: Concepts, Controversies, Applications, 9th Canadian edition!

Created specifically for students in Canada, the 9th edition of Organizational Behaviour strives to build a framework for understanding OB in our diverse workplaces, reflecting the many types of people and jobs in the world today. By incorporating current business trends and events, as well as in-text features to boost student engagement and motivation, this title presents a rich context of organizational behaviour with real career benefits.  

This title is available through our all-in-one learning platform, Revel, which provides interactive assignments and assessments to enhance the student experience. Revel is based on the latest learning science and is easy to integrate with any LMS, while also being intuitive for both students and instructors.

Teaching and learning have changed. How can Pearson help you stay in front of these changes?

Recent events have reshaped how students learn and instructors teach. Today’s classroom is not always an actual room, and students are using online resources more than ever. Our research into this, which involved hundreds of educators across Canada, revealed several trends arising from this educational shift. Namely, instructors are facing new challenges when it comes to: 

  • Student Engagement 
  • Class Preparedness 
  • Employability Skills 
  • Academic Integrity 

We strive to make our resources as applicable, compelling, and clear as possible to address these issues. Organizational Behaviour: Concepts, Controversies, Applications contains various learning tools within Revel to maintain students’ interest and foster the core competencies required for success in this discipline. These tools include Mini Simulations, Video and Podcast assignments, case analysis, and much more.

Revel facilitates active learning to help students succeed.

The Revel platform was designed by learning scientists to empower students to actively participate in their educational experience.  Built to maximize one’s learning potential, Revel allows students to read and practice in one continuous experience. Interactive content and assessments are integrated throughout the narrative and provide opportunities for students to explore and apply concepts, all in one mobile-friendly, portable experience. Some key aspects of the platform are its ability to:  

  • Manage Cognitive Load – smaller bits of content in a low-stakes environment 
  • Facilitate Active Learning – interactive learning assets to apply to content 
  • Provide Formative Assessments – end-of-section and chapter questions to self-regulate learning 
  • Allow for Retrieval Practice – students practice strong study and learning skills

Course Currency, Inclusivity, and Indigenous Content

Canada is a country rich in a variety of cultures, nationalities, and ways of thinking – it’s imperative that educational resources strengthen this aspect rather than silence it. Always striving to minimize bias in our content, Pearson is dedicated to creating resources that reflect the diversity, depth, and breadth of all learners’ lived experiences. What this means in practical terms is we have hired subject matter experts with the skills and knowledge to critically review ALL of our content, with a lens on identifying opportunities to make them more inclusive and ensure they are providing real examples of diverse experiences and perspectives.

Pearson Canada has adopted the “Nothing About Us Without Us” principle by working with Indigenous reviewers, content contributors, editors, and authors to ensure the accurate and respectful representation of Indigenous Peoples, histories, cultures, and perspectives. Pearson is also working with Indigenous academics, professionals, and members of Inuit, Métis, and First Nation communities, to increase Indigenous content across all publishing products.
