Published April 2, 2007  | 

Luc Desautels Teacher, Cégep régional de Lanaudière - Terrebonne

It is common knowledge that expenses associated with research are enormous. Everyone involved in research — the people conducting it, the institutions making a living from it, even the companies supporting it — are all too often stung by its costs. On the personal level, should employees of both community colleges and college technology transfer centres consider research as a lifelong means of furthering their training? Is it worth the cost?

What is ‘Unlocking Research’?

Published September 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Unlocking Research is a guide developed by the library staff at the Saint-Lambert Campus of Champlain College to help college level students navigate their way through the research process from the initial definition and development of a research topic to the final citation of sources in the bibliography. Unlike many similar tools, Unlocking Research targets the college level student, avoiding topics such as how to write theses, which are too advanced, and focuses on topics where college students often have difficulties. For example, there is information on how to recognize the elements of a bibliography because college students trying to do a bibliography may not recognize the difference between the article author and the editor of a book or the title of a book and the title of the chapter. Unlocking Research and associated Glossary were created with the help of a grant from the Entente Canada Québec.

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.
