From the French Side: A Summary of Innovative Approaches from Winter 2017

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Our collaborators from the French side of Profweb have submitted an impressive range of publications on pedagogical initiatives during the winter 2017 semester. While our team has worked closely together over the past few months to ensure coverage of college network activities and to translate a number of the French articles, some of the publications are available in French only. These are very worthy of your attention and we have prepared the following summary with hopes that it will inspire you to read on.

A New Spin on Oral Presentations with Tablets and YouTube

Heidi Quinsey Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

I believe that it is important for students to have the ability to express themselves. Working on oral presentations plays a crucial role in helping them to develop this ability. I became disenchanted over time with the traditional ‘one shot, make-it-or-break-it’ way of managing individual presentations for my classes. More recently, I have enlisted the use of tablets and YouTube in my Humanities: Knowledge course as means of capturing my students’ oral presentations and offering them a way to improve their ability to prepare these presentations.

Bringing Some Fun and Friendly Competition to the College Classroom with Kahoot!

Terri Connolly Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

As teachers, we are often looking for new ways to diversify and enhance our teaching strategies. In the fall 2016 semester, I was introduced to Kahoot during a library information session with my Introduction to College English students, given by Nathalie Faure, the Library Technician at our college. The level of excitement and enthusiasm was such that it prompted me to try Kahoot with my first and second year students. I can attest that Kahoot is not only fun, easy to use and engages students, but it is also a tool that can be adapted to different levels and course content.
