Quill.org Adds Personalized Writing Support to any Course

Published September 6, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Writing is a quintessential cross-curricular skill for students in technical as well as pre-university programs; college students turn in written work in most, if not all, of their courses. In order to acquire, consolidate and perfect their writing skills, students need sustained support and practice across courses. In reality, this does not always prove to be possible because of the amount of field-specific content to cover, as well as the time required to provide students with meaningful feedback on their writing. Quill.org alleviates some of these pain points by setting students up with a personalized program of learning and practice activities based on an automated diagnostic and their teacher’s recommendations.

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.
