The advantage of Propulse is that it’s free, but it’s only available in French. This is why there are two linguistic services in Profweb.

Fortunately, the team at the Association québécoise de pédagogie collégiale (AQPC)informed us last week that they have completed the translation of the summer edition of their journal Pédagogie collégiale. This time, the articles revolve around the theme of access to higher education. The diversity of topics, as well as their amazing depth illustrate that the editorial staff of the journal had a very busy summer.

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.

Sharon Coyle Teacher, Cégep de Sept-Îles

The term active learning classroom usually evokes images of a sleek space packed with all of the latest technological bells and whistles. Not so at Cégep de Sept-Îles. To fit our teaching and learning needs and goals, we consciously opted for a classroom where inter-activity – not technology – plays a central role.
