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.

Hubert.ai Chats with Your Students to Obtain Course Feedback

Published November 1, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

While obtaining student feedback has been an integral part of my teaching practices from the very beginning, it was never a truly satisfying or enjoyable activity. Over the years, I experimented with different ways of obtaining feedback, most of which were either very labour-intensive (open-ended questions) or overly formalised (multiple-choice questions or ratings). The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) has reached a point where chatbots can now handle text-based conversations and analyze them. This term, I am experimenting with Hubert.ai, a platform that harnesses the power of AI to obtain meaningful feedback through chat sessions with my students. So far, this has proven to be an effective and engaging format for everyone involved.

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.
