Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

As the semester draws to an end, we take stock of the year gone by and start to think of how we can be more effective and efficient next year.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a way to post your availability and group all types of appointments in one place? Youcanbook.me can help you get organised and put an end to the long exchange of emails or MIOs trying to find a date and time for appointments. Everyone can benefit from using this tool - teachers, education advisors, student and academic counsellors, and more.

Staying active and leading a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways of finding balance, and a great way to live a happy and fulfilled life.

This avant-garde approach, courage to use IT, and dedication were inspirations to me in my adventures in online team-teaching.

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.

It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
