Continuing Education At APOP Promotes IT Mastery!

Published September 17, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

APOP Management team

In our professional lives, e-mail, word processing and other timesaving computer applications have become ubiquitous. A spreadsheet has become a 'must' for organizing numeric input within tables, conceptual planning is done with schematic planners, and visual information is presented thanks to digital processing. As labour-efficient as these applications seem, however, their learning curve represents an enormous amount of time. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this initial investment could be shortened by profiting from the experiences of others?

Empowering Students with Liberal Education and Technology

Published January 11, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Gabriel Flacks Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Enabling student empowerment by offering students access to a personalized and inquiry-based education is a hallmark of the liberal education model. When a student is invited to share their academic work with the local and global community, it helps them to devote the requisite energy, passion and creativity to their efforts, which promotes accelerated learning. Technology can be used to support the liberal education model and, further, can provided tools to teach more effectively and enhance curricula. Using Web 2.0 tools has allowed my students to bridge academic and non-academic interests, to connect to global partners and collaborators and to engage with online media in real-time.

The fall is upon us and many IT-REPs and REPTICs in the college network are back in the swing of things, supporting individual teachers who are trying new approaches and technologies in their classrooms. Many have also begun preparing for upcoming ped days - thinking about how to provide professional development (PD) opportunities for faculty that will have a positive impact on their respective college. I recently had the opportunity to meet with Avi Spector from Quebec’s RÉCIT network and asked him about his approach to working with teachers.

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.
