Turning Novels Into Engaging Multisensory Experiences

Rebecca Peters Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In the fall 2019 semester, my students in the course Langue anglaise et culture (English 102) read Born a Crime by Trevor Noah, which details the author’s growing up in his native South Africa during the Apartheid era. To help students connect with the book’s subject matter and social context in a more concrete and meaningful manner, I turned the reading experience into a multisensory experience by designing learning activities that involved virtual reality (VR) and audio content.

Using Moodle to Create a Paperless Literature Course

Simon Côté-Massicotte Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

The phrase “paperless literature course” feels wrong. Whether because of the strong association of literature with physical books, or the perception of cellphones, computers, and tablets as distractions, there is something counterintuitive about using ICTs to teach literature.

How and Why to Use Apps In The ESL Classroom

Josianne Beaudoin-Lacroix Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

I have been interested in integrating technology in my classroom since I started teaching ESL (English as a second language) at Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. I find it is even more important at the college level where many lessons can still be dominated by teachers talking.

A Program-Specific Approach to Note Taking in the Digital Era

Mathieu Plasse Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

In the industry graphic designers need to know, master, and constantly use emerging software and technologies. This is inevitably reflected in the classrooms of graphic design students. As graphic design teachers at Cégep de Sainte-Foy, in a laptop program, my colleague Anne-Claire Delisle and I have created a flexible way for our students to take notes on the computers that they all have in the classroom. We wanted each student’s notes to reflect their individuality. By coming up with their own notes, the students are obligated to invest themselves in their studies and better integrate the content.

Videoconferencing to Build Bridges Between Student Communities

Muna Shafiq Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

In 2017 and 2018, I organized 2 very successful trips to Vancouver with my students, enrolled in the Language profile of Cégep Limoilou’s Arts, Letters and Communication program. Because this type of cultural exchange adds great value to the career path of our students, but also to that of students in British Columbia, in the fall 2019 semester, I organized a virtual encounter to continue forging ties between these young people living on both sides of the country.

A Lightboard Studio to Record Professional-Looking Educative Videos Simply and Rapidly

Caroline Cormier Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

Do you know Lightboard studios? They are video recording studios where teachers record themselves through a pane of glass on which they write. An application then inverts the picture so that even if the teacher is writing from their left to their right, the text can be read clearly in the video. As a bonus: a clever lighting system makes the fluorescent ink used look even more impactful.
