While interviewing Lawrence Nixon about his use of the Shared Drive at Dawson College, he mentioned the document we are reproducing below on plagiarism. Dr Nixon originally presented this information at an information session at the college.

Published September 19, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb
Angela Mastracci Education consultant and pedagogical instructor

Angela Mastracci is as passionate about formative assessment as she is expert at it. Angela first started pondering its importance when she was a fashion design teacher at Cégep Marie-Victorin. In 2008, she became an education consultant at the same college. Even though she retired from this position in 2017, Angela is still very much active professionally, teaching PERFORMA courses and leading AQPC workshops on the topic. I had a chat with Angela about successfully embedding formative assessment in a course.

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.

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.

Mysterious Moodle: Transforming Teaching and Learning

Published February 8, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Orzu Kamolova Moodle Consultant, DECclic

Let’s be honest. Moving to Moodle is not always an easy proposition. Sometimes I overhear teachers saying that it is not intuitive, that it is a big learning curve. I agree with them. At first sight, this course management system may seem a little daunting. However, the more you work with it, the more you understand that there is a certain logic to the platform that allows you to carefully develop your course.

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.
