Oops! I Accidentally Flipped my Classroom

Published October 7, 2012  |  Physics

Michael Dugdale Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Nathaniel Lasry and Michael Dugdale unintentionally flipped their classrooms by trying to enrich delivery of just-in-time teaching in electricity and magnetism courses. Students were asked to do reading assignments accompanied by some short open-ended questions. They arrived at the lecture having read the material, and having acquired a vision of what parts were easy and what parts were difficult for them. Although this activity didn't replace the lectures; it opened up a surprising amount of time in class for active learning activities.

Priscila Castillo-Ruiz Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

I have been working with Joan Kearvell and Isabelle Menard to develop a series of activities that mimic microbial-related infections, so that nursing students get to apply their conceptual knowledge to real life situations. Although two of us teach at Champlain College’s Saint Lambert campus and the third at the Lennoxville campus, we have been working together on a SALTISE mini-grant.

Nicole Perreault REPTIC Community Leader, Fédération des cégeps

The new approach of the 2014 ICT Student Profile has significant advantages. A transversal profile for "all programs, all colleges," it gives more flexibility to programs on the choice of software applications to use to master a skill, taking variations from one curriculum to another into account.

Evernote and Teaching

Published September 21, 2014  |  Chemistry

Carole Emilie Baddour, PhD Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

Like all addictions, it started innocently. I heard so much talk about Evernote from others, that my journey simply began out of curiosity. I wanted to know for myself what it was and how to use it. A few years ago, I started using Evernote for my personal affairs and I fell in love. It was such a powerful organizational tool and I was hooked. Evernote allowed me to have everything I could possibly need (such as documents, audio files, annotations and website clippings) stored in once place and synced across every device I used. I loved Evernote so much in my personal life that I decided to bring it into my chemistry classes.

Google Classroom to Support Sustainable Learning in the Dental Prosthesis Program

Published November 30, 2017  |  Dental Technology

Julie Jacob Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I teach in the Dental Prosthesis Program. During the winter session, I give the course Conception et confection de pièces squelettiques II to students in their 4th semester in the program. This course allows them to finish acquiring the skills essential for them to succeed the integration activity. However, the students do not have the opportunity to practice these skills between their 4th and 6th semester of studies. This means that 3rd year students sometimes have difficulty finding theoretical or practical notions from the year before. For this reason, I set out to find both, a way to ensure the safekeeping of course contents and a means of making the content easily accessible to the students.

eLearning@Dawson College

Published November 2, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Should eLearning@Dawson be the subject of an article or be considered a digital tool? I first got wind of the concept when I interviewed Chantale Giguère for a real-life story in Profweb. The story was largely a listing of the many features that she had incorporated into her courses. Although we didn’t specifically mention the idea of creating an online site for teachers using eLearning, the contents of her story reflected her interests in transmitting what she had learned in developing her own virtual pedagogy to other teachers. eLearning@Dawson is in many ways a more developed expression of the interests that Chantale described in her Profweb article, and I feel, speaks to her general motivation to give teachers a helping hand with technology.

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Thanks to a grant from ECQ (Entente Canada-Québec), a professional development resource for ESL (English as a second language) teachers who are interested in creating learning experiences outside the classroom is now available for the Quebec college network. I recently interviewed Brett Fischer and Danielle Viens who collaborated to create a private YouTube channel where teachers would share their innovative ideas for going beyond the classroom.

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

Published December 6, 2016  |  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.

3 Platforms to Create Video-Based Tasks that Actively Engage Students

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In 2018, cell phones, tablets and computers combined with free applications or software give us the ability to create high quality video and broadcast it within moments. The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.

Teachers’ Use of ICTs: What Do Students Think?

Laura King Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

In the context of a research project funded by the “Fonds de Recherche du Québec sur la société et la culture” (FRQRSC), 311 students from Dawson College and Cégep André-Laurendeau were surveyed online, in French or English, about their teachers’ practices in the use of ICTs and cyber-learning. This survey allowed the researchers to collect data on the teachers’ use of technology as well as the students’ level of satisfaction regarding this use.
