Published October 5, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Greg De Luca Educational Advisor, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

As an educator, I often feel that there is a disconnect between the classroom and the workplace, especially in the case of ACS/AEC programs. Are we adequately training our adult clientele who is already in the workforce? What if we could provide a virtual simulation that mimics real situations they will encounter so they can immediately apply their knowledge?

Inspiring Portraits: Rafael Scapin — A Generous and Gentle EdTech Guru

Published October 14, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The Quebec college network is a dynamic place where stakeholders often work across institutional borders to advance higher education in the province. For me, there are few people that embody the network’s culture of sharing and collaboration more than Rafael Scapin, the mild-mannered intellectual educational technologist with a soft Brazilian accent from Dawson College. His vast knowledge of techno-pedagogical approaches and more specifically, his guru status with the Moodle learning management platform have made him somewhat of a celebrity in the college network! But there’s much more to him than meets the eye!

Published November 16, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Benoit Bolduc AQPC Symposia Coordinator, AQPC

Are you implementing new methods of teaching and learning or experimenting with new tools (technological or otherwise) in order to help students to acquire their competencies? Are you designing activities to develop the discernment of your students or foster their participation as active members of society? Are you leading a research project or taking action to ensure the education of the ‘whole person’ within your program of studies, in your courses or as part of the services that you are providing to students? Are you seeking to understand the importance of physical attendance of students in a digital world, as much for their studies as for their citizenship? If so, we would like to hear from you at the 36th Annual Symposium of the Association québécoise de pédagogie collégiale (AQPC).

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.
