Turning Feedback into Feedforward with the REPAIR Method

Published February 9, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

As teachers, most of us abhor likening education to business. Nonetheless, certain management and business-related strategies can be relevant in an educational setting. One such concept is feedforward, an assessment technique advocated by communications consultant Joe Hirsch, which may prove particularly useful for teachers giving formative feedback as part of a competency-based assessment strategy. This article synthesizes Joe Hirsch’s book The Feedback Fix as well as his blog posts on the topic, and applies the main concepts to a pedagogical context.

Back to the future – Zenome recreates the collegial library on-line

Published January 29, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Zsolt Szigetvari Teacher, Dawson College

Inspired by the venerable card catalogues in libraries of yesteryear, Zsolt Szigetvari, a media studies teacher at Dawson College, has created a way to make browsing on the web less like a popularity contest. An experienced on-line teacher, he has taken the fruits of his experience with on-line courses and built a site called ‘Zenome’, which is an on-line directory that organizes material by communities of interest. For example, Zenome links students of urban design researching the topic of Paris to material on Notre Dame Cathedral and not to news about Paris Hilton. He calls his idea ‘a directory of communities’. In such a community, like minded people, real people, work together to evaluate resources on the web that relate to a subject of common interest.

Published February 16, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Laura King Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Catherine Fichten Teacher, Dawson College
Alice Havel Research Associate, Dawson College
Mary Jorgensen Research Associate, Adaptech

The Adaptech Research Network consists of a team of academics, students and stakeholders. Since 1996, we have been conducting bilingual research on postsecondary students with and without disabilities by examining factors which contribute to academic success. For example, in a six-year archival study, the key facilitator for 192 college graduates with disabilities was being registered for campus disability related services. When 633 college students with various disabilities were compared to 40,262 students without disabilities, we found that the 2 groups graduated at the same rate, although students with disabilities took a little longer.

Published February 9, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Murielle Cayouette Teacher, Collège O'Sullivan de Québec

Written from the standpoint of a teacher, the "5 Tips" series is intended to be a helpful resource for teachers who are integrating technology into their everyday practice.

This reality is also evident when observing the different ways that they react to technology. In this article, I identify 5 situations in which students might have more difficulty when faced with technology. I also suggest a few options on how to provide them with assistance.

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.
