My first experience with distance education as a new teacher

Published May 29, 2018  |  French (Language and Literature)

Eang-Nay Theam Teacher, Cégep de Baie-Comeau

In the fall of 2017, during my first year of teaching in a college, I was offered the possibility of giving the second literature course, Littérature et imaginaire (Literature and Imagination), as an evening distance-education class. That class comes after Écriture et littérature (Writing and Literature) (101) and precedes the Littérature québecoise (Literature from Quebec) (103) class. I was giving regular, in-class courses at the same time. I would like to tell you about my experience and share with you some strategies that encourage the students’ engagement. I would like to start by saying that I loved my experience!

Each year, the report explores trends, emerging technologies and challenges to the adoption of education technology. When reading this year’s report, you will discover a considerable amount of Canadian content with examples of innovative approaches from across the country. A number of these developments will resonate with the Quebec college network, since we have a number of innovative initiatives of our own.

Published April 9, 2019  |  Physics

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.

Utilisation des TIC en régions : fréquence et contraintes

Published February 24, 2013  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

Published November 20, 2011  |  3D Animation and Computer Generated Imagery

Matt Herzog Teacher, Cégep de Bois-de-Boulogne

Information technology is not as essential to teaching an application such as Maya, a complex 3D software using animation, modeling and dynamics, as one would think, but sophisticated software such as this is acquiring a role in social media outside of the classroom.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
