Published May 6, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Julien Martineau Teacher, Marianopolis College

Mastering the functionalities of digital tools and platforms in order to accomplish specific tasks is already a challenge in itself, for both students and teachers. There is another level of difficulty: how do you combine these platforms and their functionalities in order to create an interesting, motivating and effective learning dynamic? As I am already comfortable with technology and have an interest in inclusive pedagogy [in French], this aspect of the distance learning relationship is of particular interest to me. I would like to present how I tried to establish a sense of proximity with my students in the context of my Poésie, slam et rap francophones [French poetry, slam and rap] course.

At-home Biology Labs in Times of Pandemic

Published April 21, 2021  |  Biology

Neerusha Gokool Baurhoo Teacher, Vanier College

To allow my students to do their biology labs at a distance, I prepared for them some small kits that they can get at the Cégep in exchange for a refundable deposit. I have completely revised the labs that I usually do during my in-person courses to create new ones that allow the students to acquire the same analysis competencies, in a different context. The students consider those labs to be as engaging as they are formative, even more than the labs that they normally do in class. I am also delighted by the results!

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.
