I asked the question to the members of the Network of ICT Respondents (IT REP Network), a community of practice that brings together the pedagogical advisors responsible for the integration of ICT in the colleges of the province of Quebec. I am sharing with you the answers that I was given.

Inspiring Portraits: Rafael Scapin — A Generous and Gentle EdTech Guru

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The Quebec college network is a dynamic place where stakeholders often work across institutional borders to advance higher education in the province. For me, there are few people that embody the network’s culture of sharing and collaboration more than Rafael Scapin, the mild-mannered intellectual educational technologist with a soft Brazilian accent from Dawson College. His vast knowledge of techno-pedagogical approaches and more specifically, his guru status with the Moodle learning management platform have made him somewhat of a celebrity in the college network! But there’s much more to him than meets the eye!

The Visulibre Project: Open Enabling Technologies for the Visually Impaired

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

When planning for a new semester, we may want to consider a variety of approaches that make learning accessible to our students. It is important to consider the needs of all of our students. In 2019, I attended 2 higher education events that examined the question of how to ensure that our training is accessible to those who may have specific needs. During one of these I discovered the Visulibre project, which puts enabling technologies in the hands of visually impaired users. I recently spoke to Miguel Ross who leads the Visulibre project based in Quebec City with hopes of learning more about their mission and activities.
