Everyone can benefit from using this tool - teachers, education advisors, student and academic counsellors, and more.

Published March 12, 2019  |  Mathematics

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.

Dr. Anna Woodrow, a Humanities teacher at John Abbott College, knew that her students, especially first-year students, had difficulty citing sources and often became discouraged because they had no idea where to start. They couldn’t find useful and easy-to-use tools on the Internet. Anna had the idea to create a tutorial and applied to the CCDMD’s Call for Projects. Her project was accepted, and I am the project manager that has been helping her bring her idea to life.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
