Prior to the summer break in 2018, I interviewed Anne-Marie Mazé, one of 3 professional tutors who works at Cégep à distance. Anne-Marie is a tutor for management and psychology courses… and she is clearly passionate about her work!

Furthermore, FANDI supports students in other college programs, students with various visible and non-visible disabilities and those who have weaker language skills. Read below to find out how the database was developed and to learn about some of our favorite technologies.

Unlocking Research Everywhere

Published September 1, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Nicole Haché Library Coordinator, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

The library at Champlain Saint-Lambert has an amazing support from our campus director, Don Shewan. Knowing there were grants available, he came to me a couple of years ago looking for a project idea from the library. I came up with the idea to develop more information literacy tools and videos. Given the impact that we had with our students’ academic successes from that project, I can now expect a phone call asking, “Do you have a project?” whenever funds are available. I therefore need to keep scanning the blogosphere and twittersphere for trends in academic librarianship. This keeps ideas with respect to different technology related projects that could help not only our students but also other colleges and libraries within the province simmering on the back burner.

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.
