A Collaborative Program-based Approach Supported by Technology

Mélanie Langlois-Sabourin Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais
Denis Lavoie Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

While he was the person responsible for the course Integrated Placement (Stage d’intégration), offered as part of the 5th semester in the Electrotechnology program, Denis noticed that students had some training gaps in communication, even though this was included within the program objectives. In their placement term reports, the students had to describe 3 problematic situations. Communication skills were a recurring theme. To counteract this difficulty, Denis started integrating some communication theory into his course in order to better prepare his students.
