The Blog as a Monitoring Tool for Internships in Biotechnology

Published March 7, 2017  |  Biology

Alain Toutloff Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

Supervising students well in class is one thing, but when it comes to doing so with respect to internships, it becomes much more complex. How do you follow their evolution and give value to everything they will have accomplished? By putting a blog into place, through the My Web Space hosted by Profweb, I was able to achieve several of my pedagogical objectives. I will share with you my first experience with my students in biotechnology.

Top up Your Tank with Commitment and Fun in Biology

Published October 6, 2016  |  Biology

Nathalie L’Heureux Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I've been teaching college-level biology for more than 20 years. I am naturally curious: from the very beginning of my career I have been interested in interactive platforms. I slowly got rid of my paper notebook in favour of an interactive and electronic alternative. At the start, I had some ecological concerns. I quickly noticed that students were more engaged in their learning with my new way of teaching. What's more, they could redo their activities as many times as they wanted, and have fun too!

Exploring Online Student Assessment Systems: Part 1 – Learning Catalytics

Published March 1, 2016  |  Biology

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

In search of a faster and more efficient way of assessing student comprehension of topics addressed in class, Anna Dera stumbled upon Learning Catalytics. Diagrams, graphs, pictures and data analysis are all essential for assessing student understanding in biology, and many assessment systems are limited with respect to using this type of material. Anna’s research has taught her quickly that not all classroom response systems are made the same.

Deceptively Small Packages

Published April 8, 2012  |  Biology

Edward Awad Teacher, Vanier College

The effect that clickers have had on Edward Awad's teaching is profound. He can now spot problematic content areas and focus on topics where students need more attention. Also, without realizing it, he seems to have anticipated what is now being called the flipped classroom.

Published December 14, 2009  |  Biology

Silvia d'Apollonia Teacher, Dawson College

There is abundant evidence that students have major difficulties understanding phenomena exhibiting the characteristics of complex systems - phenomena such as evolution, population dynamics and gas laws. NetLogo is a programmable modeling environment which can be obtained free of charge where students (and teachers) can explore the characteristics of complex systems.
