Do you know a colleague that teaches Poetry and Restaurant Management in English, Tourism in Spanish and who accompanies their students on Adventure Tourism expeditions? We would like to introduce Murielle Cayouette, a versatile, super-organized teacher who is hoping to be tenured one day. She became a part of the Profweb team during the fall of 2015.

Using Videogames to Engage Students in Deeper Learning Experiences

Published May 16, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Johnathan Mina Teacher, Collège LaSalle
Pascale Warmoes Teacher, Collège LaSalle

According to the Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC), videogames are played by 54% of the Canadian population and the average “gamer” spends 11 hours per week playing videogames. Knowing that our CEGEP students are part of these statistics, we decided to experiment with using videogames in the classroom in hopes that the act of playing games that are related to course subject matter, would bring students to a greater level of understanding through an emotional experience.

Teaching Tourism… From Japan!

Published January 18, 2016  |  Tourism

Ariane Arpin-Delorme Teacher, Collège LaSalle

In May 2015, Collège LaSalle’s ICT committee sent out a call for proposals to all teachers, inviting anyone interested in integrating technology into their teaching practice to submit a project proposal. At that point, I had just been invited to an Asian tourism trade show and to a familiarization tour of Tokyo, scheduled to take place in the fall of 2015. I applied for a grant and was informed in August that my project had been chosen. This meant I was going to be able to teach a blended course to my “Cultural and Tourist Attractions of Asia and the South Pacific” students, starting in a regular classroom. Then, from September 20th to October 5th, 2015, my classes would be live from Japan!

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.
