Accessibility Evolves: Dawson College’s Student Inclusion Solution Assistive Technology Lab

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

I recently learned that Dawson College has an AT space where students with varying needs can receive the tailored support of an adapted services counsellor. My curiosity about this unique space and its mission led me to contact the college’s counsellor Rosie Arcuri as well as to speak with her predecessor Roch Ducharme, who was recently appointed the Director of CRISPESH (Centre de recherche pour l’inclusion des personnes en situation de handicap).

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Let’s face it; sometimes you need a break from marking. After the last few 50-60-hour weeks where you have marked too much and slept too little, take some time to unwind. In my position as Profweb editor, I don’t think I can recommend a glass of wine in a cosy chair beside the fireplace. I can however suggest a few fabulous activities, to take your mind off marking, based on articles that have appeared in the French Edition of Profweb in the fall of 2018.

After experimenting with the use of smart pens for peer learning and the integration of video games to stimulate deep learning, we turned to the possibilities offered by virtual reality. This technology has allowed us to provide our students with immersive experiences that contribute to developing greater empathy for topics we discuss in our respective courses.
