This resource on People Learning and Development was written by two groups of HR students in the HRMT Employee Development and Coaching class at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. The resource was created in 2021 and is licensed under a Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license

We would like to acknowledge with gratitude that the resource was written on the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem Peoples.

Content by in large reflects a North American lens of the application of employee learning and development in organizations. Gender-inclusive language is intentionally used to promote gender equality and eliminate gender bias. The word choice, phrasing, and organization of the content in each section reflect the different writing styles of the various authors.

This resource would not have been possible without the support of Kwantlen Polytechnic University, especially Urooj Nizami (Open Education Office),  Karen Meijer-Kline (library) and Christie Reddy (student assistant and KPU alumna who transferred all the content into Pressbooks). In addition, Dawne Bringeland served as the content editor, and Robert Cahill provided copyediting.

Lastly, this project was funded by an OER Creation Grant from Open Education at KPU and was supported by the Open Publishing Suite (OPUS) team.
