Reviewing for the Exam…and Having Fun!

Andrée Roussel Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

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!

Top up Your Tank with Commitment and Fun in Biology

Nathalie L’Heureux Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I've been teaching college-level biology for more than 20 years. I am naturally curious: from the very beginning of my career I have been interested in interactive platforms. I slowly got rid of my paper notebook in favour of an interactive and electronic alternative. At the start, I had some ecological concerns. I quickly noticed that students were more engaged in their learning with my new way of teaching. What's more, they could redo their activities as many times as they wanted, and have fun too!
