Audio Feedback To Give Meaning To Marking

Jean-François Legault Teacher, Collège de Valleyfield

To mark my students’ essays, I have turned to giving audio feedback. I can see real benefits in this for both my students and me. It gives a lot more meaning to grading. In audio mode the number of detailed comments that can be left increases dramatically when compared to written comments. The number of grade reviews in my classes has also decreased significantly since I have been using this method.

No More Excuses: 3 Apps to Get Students Moving in Phys Ed.

Natasha Stobert Teacher, Heritage College

Staying active and leading a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways of finding balance, and a great way to live a happy and fulfilled life. Not finding time to exercise is a common excuse that we all use. Despite this challenge, it is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. One way that I motivate myself when I exercise is using technology to help me stay on track. There are a number of apps I have been using with students in my Physical Education courses, 3 of which I would like to share with you.

The Low-Tech Active Learning Classroom at Cégep de Sept-Îles

Sharon Coyle Teacher, Cégep de Sept-Îles

The term active learning classroom usually evokes images of a sleek space packed with all of the latest technological bells and whistles. Not so at Cégep de Sept-Îles. To fit our teaching and learning needs and goals, we consciously opted for a classroom where inter-activity – not technology – plays a central role. This being 2017, of course it doesn’t mean we relegated electronic devices altogether. Here’s the story that explains the “how” and “why” of our low-tech active learning classroom.

Clinical Simulations In Nursing: Debriefing and Development Of Students’ Clinical Judgement Abilities

Yvon Brunet M. Éd. Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

The project of clinical immersion simulation at Cégep de Sainte-Foy came into being following the withdrawal of the ECOS (Examen clinique objectif structuré) that the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec used for the licensing exam. This exam served to assess the clinical judgement of graduating students in practical situations. Our department also used scenarios of the ECOS from previous years to assess the students at the end of each session while at the same time allowing them to prepare for the licensing exam at the end of their college courses.

Educational Intrapreneurship For Pedagogical And Digital Innovation

Maxime Arcand Teacher, Cégep de Trois-Rivières

I joined the Business Administration Department of the Cégep de Trois-Rivières as a teacher 5 years ago. At that time, reflection was already underway on the eventual revision of the Entrepreneur course given at the college. Even if the importance of the course was recognised by all of the members of the Entrepreneurship Roundtable, the traditional teaching strategy used and the mitigated interest of the students beginning in entrepreneurship required that the course format be revisited. My mission was clear: thoroughly review the course and at the same time integrate new teaching methods for the digital age. I then called upon my intrapreneurship skills to develop the rest of the project.
