Active Learning

Published September 3, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

The Low-Tech Active Learning Classroom at Cégep de Sept-Îles

Published October 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Sharon Coyle Teacher, Cégep de Sept-Îles

The term active learning classroom usually evokes images of a sleek space packed with all of the latest technological bells and whistles. Not so at Cégep de Sept-Îles. To fit our teaching and learning needs and goals, we consciously opted for a classroom where inter-activity – not technology – plays a central role. This being 2017, of course it doesn’t mean we relegated electronic devices altogether. Here’s the story that explains the “how” and “why” of our low-tech active learning classroom.

Using Google Docs to Teach Essay Writing and Create an Environment for Peer Learning

Published April 27, 2016  |  English (Second Language)

Johanne Morin Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

The collaboration possibilities provided by Google Docs have allowed me to take teaching essay writing to both a higher and more effective level. Students advance through the notions of essay writing, working continuously on improving the same document throughout the semester, to finish with a polished essay. Peer learning with Google Docs creates an atmosphere of collaboration and makes it easier for me and the students to see the progress being made as well as the competencies being acquired.

On-line Welcome Sessions to Promote Student Perseverance: A Pilot Project at Cégep à distance

Published September 18, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

As part of REFAD professional development workshop in early 2018, a small team from Cégep à distance came to present a pilot project within the organization’s Tutoring Services sector. Cégep à distance offers more than 150 self-contained asynchronous courses. Even if the majority of students adapt well to this mode of training, others seem to run into difficulties and do not complete their course. Among the factors that contribute to students dropping out are the feelings of isolation, having an unusual schedule or the students perception of self-efficacy which seem to be the greatest challenges.

How ICTs Are Changing the College Library and Expanding Our Classrooms

Published May 10, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The school library was something that I had not given too much thought to prior to reading an inspiring article entitled How This School Library Increased Students Use by 1,000 Percent. It’s about a high school in the United States that transformed their library into an open concept collaboration centre. The teacher in me saw this concept as both exciting and inspirational. How great would it be to have a room full of ICT equipment and tools that my students could use in a collaborative way? A library that was busy and noisy, with groups of students working, talking, creating and learning together. Where there was an “ICT librarian” to help them when they had questions or problems with a tool.

Virtual Team Teaching is Gaining Ground in the Regions

Published March 8, 2016  |  English (Second Language)

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec is a bastion of the French language where students have few authentic opportunities to engage in English conversation with Anglophones or English-speaking Allophones. This can be particularly problematic for English as a Second Language teachers. Thanks to a grant from the Entente Canada-Québec and the assistance of Vanier College, our project was able to find an innovative solution that provided students with the next best thing to an authentic English environment.
