Following the Evolution of Student Projects with Snapchat

François Longpré Teacher, Collège Lionel-Groulx

I currently teach the course Management Methodologies in the Business Technologies Program. It takes place in the 5th semester and it acts as an integrative activity. Within this course, students put into practice the theoretical notions taught in event organisation, with the objective of raising money for a foundation of their choice. It’s their occasion to demonstrate the competencies they have developed in the areas of planning, organisation, management and control during their studies.

A Virtual Teaching Assistant in the Blended Classroom

Frank Bonkowski Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Laurent

A blended learning approach (sometimes referred to as hybrid teaching) seems to be the best of both worlds, combining online instruction with face-to-face classroom interaction. Many report that the blended classroom–regardless of which model is used–is flexible and convenient, as it offers access to lots of resources. Using online tools can also increase student motivation. A 2012 article in Profweb reported that the hybrid/blended classroom is growing in popularity in Québec. This is not surprising since some recent research has shown that blended classrooms can outperform traditional classrooms. I’ve been teaching academic writing to high-intermediate and advanced English as a Second Language (ESL) students at the Cégep de Saint-Laurent for the past several years. Using the Moodle platform, I’ve been doing hybrid or blended teaching in multi-skill courses at the 102 and 103 levels.

Teaching in Tourism…Live from Kenya and South Africa!

Ariane Arpin-Delorme Teacher, Collège LaSalle

In December 2015, I presented you with a Real Life Story that transported you to Japan. I am doing it again this month of November 2016, only this time I am leading you towards Kenya and South Africa. I have the opportunity to work both as a teacher in the Tourism Techniques at Collège LaSalle and as a consultant and travel agent of customized trips in an agency that I created. Animal safari trips are one of our specialities.

Educational Robotics and Lego: Combining Techniques, Ethics and Fun

Jean Labbé Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

I’ve been teaching in the Industrial Electronics Technology program for 23 years at the Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon. Robotics have interested me for a long time and I have updated my knowledge of them through private study over the years. When the 2 exit profiles for Industrial Electronics were combined (Electrodynamics, Instrumentation and Automation), each CEGEP offering the program created its own course grid based on the 19 ministerial competencies. It’s within this context that the department introduced the Positioning and Robotics course (Positionnement et robotique) in 2008. Then, in 2014, an Attestation of Collegial Studies in Industrial Robotics was born at Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon, after we combined our efforts with those of the Cégep de Victoriaville.

Reviewing for the Exam…and Having Fun!

Andrée Roussel Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

The Poll Everywhere tool is very useful in many aspects of my teaching. It's a free on-line tool that allows you to create questionnaires that students can answer in real time with a cell phone, computer or tablet. In collaboration with Mathieu Cyr, Teaching Intern at the Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon and Postgraduate student at the Université Laval.

Using Action Research to Create an Inter-collegial Student Learning Community

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche
Susan MacNeil Teacher, Collège Mérici

Having collaborated on past endeavours, we were excited about our latest initiative that would bring together students from different colleges, to work together on a common project. With help from an Entente-Canada-Québec (ECQ) grant, we were able to implement our project – Action Research: Learning Communities in Sustainable Development. The main objectives were to engage students in action research, related to sustainable development, and to participate in a learning community using an Internet based platform. The theme of the project made it very accessible, touching courses from various English second language classes, to geography, humanities, social science, science and more!
