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.

Blended Learning with Microsoft Office Mix for PowerPoint

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Julie Wong Teacher, Dawson College

Office Mix is a simple free screen recording add-in from Microsoft that integrates directly into PowerPoint. I discovered the tool at a teachers’ CAAA conference in Newfoundland over the summer of 2016. I was excited to try it when I returned to Dawson in the fall. Combined with a flipped classroom pedagogy that includes problem-based learning, integrating this tool into my workflow allowed me to produce learning material that dramatically improved the success rates of my students.

Mathematics and Programming in the Cloud with CoCalc

Gabriel Indurskis Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Cloud computing is an increasingly important part of the college experience in Quebec. With more and more educational establishments using Google Tools, Office 365 and Moodle, there is less and less of an emphasis on having computers with a laundry list of applications installed. When you can fire up a web browser and have access to a wide range of tools, it is a game-changer. The field of mathematics is also well-entrenched within this computing trend, with the appearance of cloud-based innovations in the past couple of years, not the least of which is a powerful platform for cloud computing known as SageMathCloud, which has recently been rebranded as CoCalc. Since this name change is very recent, most of the information and tutorials on the internet still make reference to the old name, and this article will use both names interchangeably.
