Teaching Terminology with Tools That Engage Students

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The foundation of many courses relies on students learning new vocabulary: geography, biology, marketing, tourism, economics, physiotherapy, and the list goes on. For many disciplines, these important words must be mastered before a teacher can dive into the course subject matter. Finding ways to help students learn terminology through context and meaning, while making it fun and interesting, is a challenge. Teaching English for Tourism and other courses in the Bilingual Tourism Program (CEGEPs Limoilou and Champlain-St. Lawrence) has given me the opportunity to try different approaches and test various tools.

Empowering Students with Liberal Education and Technology

Gabriel Flacks Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Enabling student empowerment by offering students access to a personalized and inquiry-based education is a hallmark of the liberal education model. When a student is invited to share their academic work with the local and global community, it helps them to devote the requisite energy, passion and creativity to their efforts, which promotes accelerated learning. Technology can be used to support the liberal education model and, further, can provided tools to teach more effectively and enhance curricula. Using Web 2.0 tools has allowed my students to bridge academic and non-academic interests, to connect to global partners and collaborators and to engage with online media in real-time.
