How ICTs Are Changing the College Library and Expanding Our Classrooms

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The school library was something that I had not given too much thought to prior to reading an inspiring article entitled How This School Library Increased Students Use by 1,000 Percent. It’s about a high school in the United States that transformed their library into an open concept collaboration centre. The teacher in me saw this concept as both exciting and inspirational. How great would it be to have a room full of ICT equipment and tools that my students could use in a collaborative way? A library that was busy and noisy, with groups of students working, talking, creating and learning together. Where there was an “ICT librarian” to help them when they had questions or problems with a tool.

20 New Problems for the Website: Problem-Based Learning for College Physics

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach has been proven to be successful in several different disciplines and physics is one of the them. Searching for problems designed for all 3 fields of physics at the college level, Olivier Tardif-Paradis, Mathieu Riopel and Alexandre April, of Cégep Garneau, launched themselves into a 2-year project of creating new problems for the existing website by the CCDMD, Problem-Based Learning for College Physics: A Website for Life-like Activities.

Strategies and Tools for the Dreaded Oral Presentation!

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Oral presentations are widely used across college disciplines with most students having at least one oral presentation each semester. Many students are not comfortable doing this task, luckily there are strategies and alternatives that can be implemented to help students succeed. After discussions with several colleagues in the network, I have confirmed my theory that using a combination of tools and strategies can bring about positive results when it comes to oral presentations.

Teaching Terminology with Tools That Engage Students

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The foundation of many courses relies on students learning new vocabulary: geography, biology, marketing, tourism, economics, physiotherapy, and the list goes on. For many disciplines, these important words must be mastered before a teacher can dive into the course subject matter. Finding ways to help students learn terminology through context and meaning, while making it fun and interesting, is a challenge. Teaching English for Tourism and other courses in the Bilingual Tourism Program (CEGEPs Limoilou and Champlain-St. Lawrence) has given me the opportunity to try different approaches and test various tools.

Making More Effective Use of Availability Hours with a Booking Platform

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

As the semester draws to an end, we take stock of the year gone by and start to think of how we can be more effective and efficient next year. Do you make a lot of appointments with your students or colleagues? Are you running between two different schools or campuses? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a way to post your availability and group all types of appointments in one place? Youcanbook.me can help you get organised and put an end to the long exchange of emails or MIOs trying to find a date and time for appointments. Everyone can benefit from using this tool - teachers, education advisors, student and academic counsellors, and more.

Discovering Language Improvement Tools on My Journey of Learning French as a Second Language

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

According to the results I received from the Test diagnostique des compétences en orthographe française, I still have a lot to learn about the French language! In recognition of the Semaine de la langue française, I decided to test my French skills to see where my proficiency is now, after having lived in Québec for 16 years and working in a bilingual environment for 13 years.
