Parallele

Published April 6, 2014  |  Physics

Parallèle Development team, PCUC

Parallèle est une application iPad qui exploite la réalité augmentée. Parallèle est un jeu qui permet de se familiariser avec des notions d'électromagnétisme. Plus particulièrement, Parallèle s'adresse à tous les enseignants de physique qui ont à enseigner les notions liées au mouvement de particules chargées dans un champ électromagnétique, et à leurs étudiants.

Videos, Google Forms and the Flipped Classroom

Published August 24, 2015  |  Physics

Emmanuelle Goulet Teacher, Cégep du Vieux Montréal

It was a bit of a fluke that I integrated the flipped classroom approach into my pedagogy during the winter of 2012. In the beginning, it was a solution to ensure that classes would start up again after the student strike. Since then I have been using this method by choice and for the pleasure of the experience of flipping some of my classes. With the right tools and the support of the ICT Education Advisor from my college, the transition to a flipped classroom went very well.

Flipping to Promote Active Learning and Engagement in a Physics Classroom

Published April 1, 2019  |  Physics

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Patrick Rogers teaches Physics at Marianopolis College. Over the past 5 years he has redesigned his students’ learning environment. He now uses the flipped classroom approach to allow for more time to activate student engagement in class.

Using Geogebra within Moodle to Give Physics Students Instantaneous Feedback

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.

Luc Tremblay Teacher, Collège Mérici

Physics courses can lead to the understanding of phenomena rather than the rote use of formulas!

Building Great Communities of Practice Together

Published December 1, 2013  |  Physics

Chris Whittaker Teacher, Dawson College

As the new active learning classroom's first semester draws to a close, Chris reflects how the community of practice for active learning has influenced his teaching providing an ingenuity and a creative thrust that comes just by exchanging ideas.

Mixing Academia with Wikipedia

Published February 15, 2009  |  Physics

Simon Villeneuve Teacher, Cégep de Chicoutimi

Because this encyclopedia and its contents are by their very nature collaborative and seek to make all human knowledge accessible, I considered asking the students in my astronomy course to share their knowledge of astronomy through contributions to Wikipedia articles related to this topic. This is how the Wikipedia page Projet : Cégep de Chicoutimi saw the light of day in the French language edition of this resource.

MIT’s Classrooms of the Future: Now in a Classroom Near You

Published January 24, 2010  |  Physics

Elizabeth Charles Researcher, Dawson College

An adaptation of the innovatively designed science classrooms at MIT can now be found at Dawson College's Physics Department. These spaces illustrate that IT is useful but works best in environments designed to accommodate it.

Using PSI (The Personalized System of Instruction) for Active Learning

Published August 26, 2012  |  Physics

Rocco Iafigliola Teacher, Marianopolis College

PSI helps learners take control of their own learning. It fell into disfavour because of the heavy correction load required to provide feedback. The advent of online platforms such as  MasteringPhysics with self-correcting tests has allowed teachers to revisit this strategy.

Getting Beyond the Equations

Published October 31, 2010  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

My practical teaching style means I am sometimes surprised by how students can push their own learning when they are motivated. Beyond a basic lesson plan, I observe how students interact with concepts in the classroom and try to teach in response to what I am seeing, often with information technology. One challenge with IT is to discover how the modern generation learns. Their relationship with technology is often very different from my own.

20 New Problems for the Website: Problem-Based Learning for College Physics

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach has been proven to be successful in several different disciplines and physics is one of the them. Searching for problems designed for all 3 fields of physics at the college level, Olivier Tardif-Paradis, Mathieu Riopel and Alexandre April, of Cégep Garneau, launched themselves into a 2-year project of creating new problems for the existing website by the CCDMD, Problem-Based Learning for College Physics: A Website for Life-like Activities.

Facebook Groups to Stimulate Student Interest in Subject Matter

Éric Laflamme Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In the winter and fall sessions of 2017, I used Facebook to help students develop an awareness of the concrete applications of the subject that I was teaching them. The first time I used it was in an elective astronomy course. The second time was in the Electricity and Magnetism course in Natural Science (Health Science profile).

Creating Digital Course Notes to Make Learning Easier

Luc Tremblay Teacher, Collège Mérici

After some 15 years of teaching, I decided to create my own course notes. I used Word (with MathType) for the writing, and saved the files as PDF. I used PaintShop Pro to create the figures. I integrated clickable hyperlinks in my notes, which gives them a an added value when read in their digital format, but they can also be used in a printed format. Besides, that is what students prefer to do. My notes are online on my site, La physique à Mérici (resource in French only), and are accessible to all.
