The Association for the Educational Application of Computer Technology at the Post-Secondary Level (APOP):

- Supports the implementation and use of ICTs as an educational resource

APOP offers professional development activities for technological skills in teaching and in learning to improve professional practices.

They are offered in a variety of formats:
- Workshops in technopedagogical skills adapted to the diverse needs of teaching personnel (APOP_mobile)
- Targeted activities in response to specific needs, offered to a homogeneous group of teachers in the same discipline, department, or program, (APOP_taxi)
- Made-to-measure individual support in developing and carrying out a structured technopedagogical project (APOP_tandem)
These activities are accessible to member establishments of the Collective Professional Development Fund (CPDF) as well as to non-members. Additional information is available from the institution or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
L’APOP performs and disseminates a variety of guided activities dealing with targeted and current themes in technopedagogy. Webinars, interviews, lunchtime chat sessions, and presentations are offered in collaboration with academics and partners. These activities take place in the Cantine, an open web space with free access and no registration, where collaborative exchanges and thematic discussions are on the menu. Guided activities can be viewed in the website section of Technopedagogical capsules.
