Bashing Trash in Class: A Bad Book Podcast Project

Simon Côté-Massicotte Editor, Profweb

To help counter the increased cognitive fatigue and isolation of my literature students during the pandemic, I wanted to create a collaborative project that would foster more casual interactions between my students. The result was a podcast project where my students had to read “bad” literature and criticize it with their co-hosts. In the end, they read garbage and had a good laugh, all while developing their critical thinking and reviewing literary theory.

The HyFlex classroom: a paperless classroom?

Anne-Laure Teichet Teacher, Dawson College

During the pandemic, I taught a few HyFlex classes. Wanting to take advantage of all the technological means at my disposal, I found instead that students who came to class physically chose to do so precisely to take a break from the digital world.

Creating a Sense of Proximity With Your Students, Even at a Distance: Supporting Students Continually (2/2)

Julien Martineau Teacher, Marianopolis College

Mastering the functionalities of digital tools and platforms in order to accomplish specific tasks is already a challenge in itself, for both students and teachers. There is another level of difficulty: how do you combine these platforms and their functionalities in order to create an interesting, motivating and effective learning dynamic? As I am already comfortable with technology and have an interest in inclusive pedagogy [in French], this aspect of the distance learning relationship is of particular interest to me. I would like to present how I tried to establish a sense of proximity with my students in the context of my Poésie, slam et rap francophones [French poetry, slam and rap] course.
