A Multidisciplinary Course to Initiate Students to the Scientific Approach in Natural Sciences

Caroline Dupont Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

How to prepare Natural Sciences students to the complexity of the problems that they will have to solve throughout their lives, both as scientists and as citizens? In an obligatory multidisciplinary course for the student of the Environment, Life and Society profile, my colleagues and I bet on problem-based learning. We use current environmental issues to offer students authentic and contextualized learning situations.

Video Tutorials to Make a Mechanical Engineering Technology Course More Accessible

Jean-René Rodrigue Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

In the Mechanical Engineering Technology courses I give, I teach students to use different machine tools: lathes, milling machines, etc. To optimize the efficiency of my demonstrations of the use of these machines, I created video tutorials, based on the principles of universal design for learning.

Students in charge of a 3D printer as part of an interdisciplinary project in Natural Sciences

Martin Lepage Teacher, Collège Laflèche
Mylène Robitaille Teacher, Collège Laflèche

As part of an interdisciplinary learning activity, we decided to make our Natural Sciences students experience a true digital conception and manufacture project. The activity, spanning 2 semesters, involved experts outside of the domain of education whose interventions sought to stimulate the creativity of the students, all the while accentuating the realistic character of the project.

Using Geogebra within Moodle to Give Physics Students Instantaneous Feedback

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

Traditionally, Physics students work with pencil and paper on Physics assessments. In recent semesters, I have been using GeoGebra and Moodle to provide opportunities for my students to interact with Physics-related content and get instantaneous feedback. These tools allow me to better monitor whether they have integrated the learning objectives of my classes and track the friction points, and has ultimately helped to improve their performance in my courses.

Renewing the Quantitative Methods Course by Anchoring it in Real Life

Nadia Laflamme Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

Since 2013, gradually, my colleagues Annie Turcotte and Steve Fortin, and I have reviewed in depth the way that we were giving the Quantitative Methods course. We now give the class in an ALC (active learning classroom), and engage in activities based on problem situations anchored in real life. For one activity, we collaborate with local community organizations: the students utilise their competencies to respond to the needs of those organizations.

Managing Student Questions with the Piazza Q&A Platform

Gabriel Indurskis Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

As a busy teacher, I am always on the lookout for technologies that help me to most efficiently use my time. For the last 2 years I have adopted the Piazza.com Q&A platform to help me manage material-related student questions in all my CEGEP mathematics courses (Calculus, Linear Algebra, Statistics, etc.), rather than using e-mail or MIO. It helps me to avoid answering the same question over and over and empowers students to answer questions among themselves.
