Second Language Adventure Tourism

Published October 5, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche

International Baccalaureate (IB) students are generally motivated or they would not have chosen to go into such an intensive program. I wanted to give these students an experience where they would be working on their own, at their own pace and speaking with authentic Anglophones, a rarity in Trois-Rivières in order to deal with the multiplicity of language skills in my IB class. I knew that the Entente Canada-Quebec could provide a grant which would enable an actual immersion trip. All manner of information technology including Facebook and chat as well as a willing partner in a French as Second Language course at Cégep de Gaspésie des Îles made for a great way to realize these goals.

Published August 19, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

Whether you are still on vacation or back to work, you probably weren’t saved from the numerous advertisements announcing the imminent return to the classroom which began cropping up in mid-July. I think that it is better to get back in the beat slowly, which is why I thought you might want to take a look at some of our publications from June 2016 that featured our favourite articles and end of year events. Sometimes forgotten due to the frenetic pace of vacation (I won’t hold it against you!), these articles surely deserve a second chance.

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.
