Performa is the result of a unique partnership between the Université de Sherbrooke and 61 college institutions whose mission is to support:
- professional development of college pedagogical staff, particularly teachers
- the institutional pedagogical development of member institutions.
Performa offers university training programs, in both French and English, designed in collaboration with member institutions to meet their specific needs.
A local Performa representative (RL) is present in each college to support the pedagogical staff in their professional development path.
Performa offers diversified graduate level courses in terms of both approaches and pedagogical methods, focusing on the exchange and dialogue of knowledge.
In a spirit of accessibility and flexibility, Performa's continuing education programs are offered year-round, at the local, regional and network levels. Several course formats are available:
- physical presence;
- blended learning;
In some cases, courses may take place in the workplace, on the job, integrated into the participants' schedules and provided by a college resource person.
