Signature Learning Experience

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead

Signature Learning Experience

Centennial College’s Signature Learning Experience is a commitment to provide students with an education that opens up a world of knowledge and insight that reaches beyond the skills of the career for which they are studying. This distinctive educational experience integrates the principles of global citizenship, social justice and equity. Global Citizenship & Equity (GCE) Education prepares students to succeed for the global marketplace.

Global Citizenship & Equity is Centennial College’s Signature Learning Experience (SLE) that prepares students to excel in a diverse world. The SLE has four core components:

  • GNED 500: A required General Education course, Global Citizenship: From Social Analysis to Social Action, which explores the nature of diversity and discrimination in our society and builds global citizenship and equity competencies in every student.
  • Embedding/Integrating GCE into Curriculum: The integration of GCE learning outcomes in all Schools at both program and course levels.
  • GCE Student Portfolio: The portfolio is a collection of artifacts that demonstrate learner’s growth with GCE concepts and ideas over the course of their program.
  • Faculty and Staff Training: Professional development opportunities for members of the college community related to GCE.

Understanding the role of equity allows students to deepen their knowledge of how personal and social responsibility addresses the injustices of our world at the personal, professional and global levels.

GCE at Centennial College is an educational initiative that encourages students, staff and faculty to think critically about their commitments and actions to bring about personal change that can work to advance their career goals.
