custom resource development & publishing

InPraxis provides customized resource development for public and private organizations, from concept to design and production. InPraxis develops student and teacher resources, based on current research, that meet the needs of curriculum and classroom teachers.

All of our resources advocate a constructivist, student-centred approach to learning that encourages students to think critically and creatively, and make connections between their lives and what they are being asked to learn. We recognize, through our teaching background and extensive involvement of teacher reviewers in all of our projects, the importance of including teaching supports, including strategies for differentiating instruction and addressing multiple perspectives, assessment tools and approaches, technology-based links and strategies and the provision of the background information that supports teachers in accurately and effectively teaching for understanding.
  • Virtual Apprentice courses, developed for the Alberta SPCA, support learning in an online environment for high school students in Alberta Career and Technology Studies courses in the Agriculture strand– 1040 Introduction to Animal Basics and 2020 Animal Husbandry/Welfare –These courses offer students accurate and current information related to the care and welfare of companion animals and livestock and are accessible on www.ctsanimals.ca.

  • Urbanization
  • Critical Issues Guides, developed for Alberta Canola Producers, focus on a range of topics and issues related to agriculture, including urbanization, biofuels, biodiversity and consumerism, among many others. Examples of titles we have developed include:

Alberta Canola Producers’ Grow Guides can be accessed on the Canola Learning Centre, including How do people in different communities grow and manage crops?; How does agricultural land use depend on and change Alberta’s environment?; and How do environmental factors affect Canada’s food production?.
