The pace of change in our world is unprecedented, and Sheridan College looked to break the mould on how public safety education had been done when it came to creating community safety. This included how we perceive community safety, how students could learn to leave a mark and even how they access knowledge. In this presentation, we discussed the importance of interdisciplinary and inter- professional approaches, and how a zero-textbook approach can facilitate student learning and adaptability.
