Virtual Language Exchanges: Making Connections with Mixxer

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

For the past few years I have been experimenting with online collaboration with other teachers in the college network as part of my English as a Second Language courses. Last year, we were fortunate to have obtained a grant from the Entente Québec-Canada that permitted myself and some colleagues to familiarize ourselves with synchronous and asynchronous communication pedagogy, which became the subject of a Real Life Story on Profweb. Although I learned a lot through this experience, I felt that we could still make some gains in the efficiency of my use of our active learning lab and that we had yet to exploit all the possibilities these labs and Google tools could offer to both teachers and learners.

Physical Education and the Flipped Classroom: A Custom Training Program Thanks to Moodle

Renaud Despaties-Witty Teacher, ITA - Campus Saint-Hyacinthe
Laura Mercier Teacher, ITA - Campus Saint-Hyacinthe

At the turn of the century, seeing obesity, cardiovascular illnesses and type II diabetes rates that were skyrocketing within the population, the ITA (Institut de technologie agroalimentaire) decided to take on the issue of physical inactivity that was, and still is, affecting our society. We decided to focus the physical education courses which are mandatory for the DCS/DEC on adopting healthy life habits - more specifically focusing on regular physical activity (3 workout sessions per week).

A Collaborative Program-based Approach Supported by Technology

Mélanie Langlois-Sabourin Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais
Denis Lavoie Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

While he was the person responsible for the course Integrated Placement (Stage d’intégration), offered as part of the 5th semester in the Electrotechnology program, Denis noticed that students had some training gaps in communication, even though this was included within the program objectives. In their placement term reports, the students had to describe 3 problematic situations. Communication skills were a recurring theme. To counteract this difficulty, Denis started integrating some communication theory into his course in order to better prepare his students.

New Quiz Feature in Google Forms

Dominic Fournier Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

I have been an avid user of Google Forms for several years and I was pleasantly surprised to find a new feature added to the app. Google Forms has become one of the favorite tools I use for many of my courses. I not only use it for quizzes and surveys, but also for team project registration and topic selection, receiving internship information from students, and receiving online assignments, to name a few. Although I have tried other applications, I keep coming back to Google Forms for the ease with which other software and applications integrate into it and because it is free for my students, my college and myself.

The Blog as a Monitoring Tool for Internships in Biotechnology

Alain Toutloff Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

Supervising students well in class is one thing, but when it comes to doing so with respect to internships, it becomes much more complex. How do you follow their evolution and give value to everything they will have accomplished? By putting a blog into place, through the My Web Space hosted by Profweb, I was able to achieve several of my pedagogical objectives. I will share with you my first experience with my students in biotechnology.
