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

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

A number of my discussions with educators across the college network in 2018 have revolved around the adoption of inclusive pedagogy (IP), Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Assistive Technology (AT). 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).

Need Some Motivation Right About Now? Try Out Some Suggestions From The French Side’s Fall 2018 Publications

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.

Simon Côté-Massicotte Editor, Profweb

Virtual team teaching, or VTT, consists of having students from different colleges, often in different regions, collaborate on assignments or projects in a synchronous manner using online communication tools, in class. Invaluable in courses where the student is invited to learn about other cultures and languages, VTT has the potential to enhance almost any course.

Ready, Set, Connect! Pedagogy and Multidisciplinary Collaborators

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

As technology has become ubiquitous in the workplace, college students have to learn different forms of communication and acquire technology skills. In 2017-2018, Lisa Deguire and Marie-Sophia Grabowiecki, engaged their students and themselves in a cross-campus and cross-discipline project to meet those objectives. Thanks to the support of the ECQ and the Virtual Team Teaching Network (VTTN) students from the Cégep de Jonquière and from Vanier College were introduced to the concept of collaborating at a distance in a simultaneous live cross-campus collaborative debate. The project was aptly dubbed “speech and debate isn’t just for arguing” and was presented at both l’AQPC and RASCALS conferences in June 2018.

Schoology: an LMS that Truly Connects You with Your Students

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In the digital era, learning management systems (LMS) have become a central part of our educational practices. Whether you send an electronic message to a student, post grades online, share a homework assignment in the cloud, or set up a web-based activity, chances are you use an LMS to accomplish this. With such a variety of tasks on offer, clearly no two learning management systems are the same. Schoology is an LMS with a strong emphasis on communication and collaboration, making it particularly useful for use with non-traditional course formats (active or flipped approaches, blended learning, distance teaching, etc.).
