A Class Blog to Thin the Classroom Walls

Published January 16, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Alison Crump, Marianopolis College

As an educator, in all contexts, I focus on pedagogical approaches that create spaces for learner agency, a sense of belonging, and collaborative participation.

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.
