Learner-based Teaching

Published May 6, 2014  |  Psychology

Shelagh Robinson Teacher, Dawson College

In an earlier Profweb story, Simple Technologies Transform Our Brains, Shelagh Robinson related her fascination with mirror reading, and its usefulness illustrating the plurality between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. The title alluded to the fact that one of the most useful tools for presenting mirror reading was a simple overhead projector, and transparencies to reverse images. Thanks to the efforts of two cégep graduates, this is no longer true. Mirror reading is now a concept that is accessible to psychology students both in class and outside of it.

Since all cégeps are required to evaluate their programs of study, Lee Anne Johnston realized that her counterparts in the network were probably experiencing the same type of isolation that she was. At her presentation at the 2011 AQPC symposium, it was suggested that an inter-cégep collaborative working group be set up.

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.
