Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Communication is one of 5 common competencies developed throughout CEGEP education. College students turn in written work in most, if not all, of their courses.

Utilisation des TIC en régions : fréquence et contraintes

Denis Bédard Ph. D., Director
Nathalie Lefebvre M. A., Coordinator

Établir le portrait des pratiques technopédagogiques au regard de l’utilisation des pédagogies actives en enseignement supérieur, tel était le thème d’une enquête menée par le Centre d’étude et de développement pour l’innovation technopédagogique (CÉDIT). Cette démarche a permis de colliger les réponses de 410 enseignants du réseau d’enseignement collégial provenant de différentes régions du Québec (Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Bas-St-Laurent, Chaudière-Appalaches, Côte-Nord, Estrie, Gaspésie-et-les-Îles-de-la-Madeleine et Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean). Les établissements collégiaux ont été sélectionnés en fonction des réalités propres aux régions éloignées des deux grands centres urbains que sont Québec et Montréal. L’objectif était de déterminer si une transformation des postures et des pratiques technopédagogiques des enseignants était présente dans ces milieux régionaux. Cette chronique permettra de mettre quelques résultats en évidence.

Lee Ann Johnston, Heritage College

Since all cégeps are required to evaluate their programs of study, Lee Anne Johnston realized that her counterparts in the network were probably experiencing the same type of isolation that she was. At her presentation at the 2011 AQPC symposium, it was suggested that an inter-cégep collaborative working group be set up. She submitted a proposal to APOP for support through their APOP_Tandem project for three online meetings using the VIA platform. Collaboration ensued.
