GBC and CultureLink partnered on this social innovation project to help Canadian newcomers (with advanced degrees) on their journey to belongingness in Canadian workplaces. The goal of this research is to shed light on the actual needs of this sector and contribute to capacity of settlement organizations, human resources’ training departments, and job training centers to effectively and efficiently bring newcomers into the workforce.
This is a qualitative research report that interrogates the extent to which Web 2.0 (interactive and social medial tools) and other digital technologies are being used in the Community Work sector in the GTA. Simultaneously the project examines students’ digital capabilities and training. The research findings are based on 21 cross-sector agency interviews and a combined total of 104 students across two different years of study. The findings speak to the need for critical digital fluency in pedagogical approaches to help students gain literacy but also have the flexibility to adapt as the tools shift and change and a recognition that non-profit agencies rely on these tools for a different types of work, concluding with suggestions on how GBC can best support both curriculum development and our non-profit partners in an era digital transformation.

Currently, palpation skills are taught using textbook readings, online videos demonstration and occasionally students practicing on healthy student. We reviewed the literature and ascertained that a head to neck palpation manikin does not exist. The applicants, who are simulation lab experts, are collaborating with GBC Mechanical Engineering Design students to construct a soft-skin adjustable (normal and abnormal glands) head to neck manikin with 13 pressure sensors strategically located to accurately reflect actual glandular landmarks.
