PD Day at LaSalle College: Sharing Ideas and Collaborating!
College LaSalle will be hosting a PD day on February 25th, 2016. At the end of the fall semester of 2015, I had the opportunity to discuss with Julie Anne Roy, the Educational Support Coordinator who has been organizing the event. An impressive array of professional resources from LaSalle College, as well as other educational establishments and organizations will be in attendance for this event, which is an excellent example of the synergy that exists in the college network. Many ministerial ICT partners will be presenting workshops during this event.
This semester’s edition will offer a selection of 10 workshops on various topics, including a morning whose theme is preventing plagiarism.
Sessions in French (or bilingual sessions):
- Electronic Plagiarism : Definition, Prevention and Detection (Nicole Perreault, Community Leader, Réseau des REPTICs, Fédération des cégeps)

Behind the Scenes
To organize this activity, Julie Anne invited all of the teachers in her college to share their knowledge and experience. Julie Anne also sent a call for proposals to the REPTIC network. This year, ministerial IT Partners, including the CCDMD, the IT Representatives’ Network, Cégep à distance and the Vitrine technologie-éducation answered her call.
