Creating Digital Course Notes to Make Learning Easier

Luc Tremblay Teacher, Collège Mérici

After some 15 years of teaching, I decided to create my own course notes. I used Word (with MathType) for the writing, and saved the files as PDF. I used PaintShop Pro to create the figures. I integrated clickable hyperlinks in my notes, which gives them a an added value when read in their digital format, but they can also be used in a printed format. Besides, that is what students prefer to do. My notes are online on my site, La physique à Mérici (resource in French only), and are accessible to all.

Concept Mapping: A Great Instructional Strategy That Encourages Transfer of Knowledge and Critical Thinking

Heather Sorella Teacher, Collège LaSalle

A while back, in a marketing strategy course of the Fashion Marketing Program, I integrated a project where students would identify the problems experienced by a fashion retailer who was struggling. They then had to propose solutions, find objectives and strategies and create an action plan. It became a very linear project for the students: 2 assignments of 20 marks each. The students would get into groups of 5 and divide up the work, “You do part A, you do part B and I’ll do part C…” etc. Each student would summit their part and the assignment had very little cohesiveness. I even had to tell the students to at least assign the proofreading of the entire work to one of the members of the group and make sure they all used the same font. I could tell which of the students were doing the work.

My first experience with distance education as a new teacher

Eang-Nay Theam Teacher, Cégep de Baie-Comeau

In the fall of 2017, during my first year of teaching in a college, I was offered the possibility of giving the second literature course, Littérature et imaginaire (Literature and Imagination), as an evening distance-education class. That class comes after Écriture et littérature (Writing and Literature) (101) and precedes the Littérature québecoise (Literature from Quebec) (103) class. I was giving regular, in-class courses at the same time. I would like to tell you about my experience and share with you some strategies that encourage the students’ engagement. I would like to start by saying that I loved my experience!

At the Collège d’Alma, students in Science are required to take a complementary computer course. This course was previously a face-to-face course, however since the fall of 2016, the course has been offered as an online course in asynchronous mode. This change was a resounding success!

A Student-Centered Blogging Project Combining Business and Literature

Patrick Savard Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

In the winter 2017 semester, I did some research on Inclusive Pedagogy and came across Learner-Centered Teaching, a book by Terry Doyle and Todd Zakrajsek that had me rethink the way I considered my role as a teacher. The book spoke so much to me that I very soon longed to experiment with its theories in the classroom. I literally turned my course upside down halfway through the semester in Long Fiction for Business, a program-specific core English course in the Business program at St. Lawrence. I moved on from a traditional lecture-based approach to a complete blog development project. I did not realize how much of a career-changing experience it would become.
