Welcome to Studio
— Copian's website devoted to workplace education case studies
Our searchable directory features case studies — in both official languages — of exemplary workplace education delivery models within the context of literacy and essential skills (LES) and beyond.
Studio, in Latin, means to study, to pursue eagerly or to be eager for.
What is Studio?
Studio is your work room, your resource centre, your meeting place and your connection to knowledge and expertise in the field of workplace learning and essential skills. Browse the collected resources and review case studies of best practices in workplace education programs from across Canada.
Find a case study that works for you and helps to meet your workplace needs. Use the Conversation Corner as a comments/feedback section to tell us what you think and to share your findings with others who could benefit from your experience with a particular resource.
Please be advised that Studio is a work in progress and we are in the early stages of posting to our new website. We’re very excited to be with you. Copian has compiled a list of organizations from across Canada that have produced case studies of workplace education programs. Information about these resources will be added to our directory regularly. If you’re wondering how you or your organization can become a contributor to Studio, please contact us by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note the program descriptions contained in these case studies were accurate and up to date at the time the documents were produced.

These guidelines are intended to help you understand the process for writing the case study report.
Many of you may have already conducted a case study or written up such a report for your workplace. If so, these guidelines can simply complement the experience you already have in identifying best practices in workplace education. For those who are somewhat new to the situation, the guidelines are developed around a series of three questions: What is case study research? How do I write up my case study report? What are the criteria for case study inclusion in the Studio Project and examples of topics?
