A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Published September 12, 2016  |  Chemistry

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis

The laboratory notebook is indispensable within many scientific disciplines, as it constitutes the "memory of an experiment." The content is traditionally written by hand in a spiral-bound notebook. The observations,  measurements, calculations and results are recorded in a chronological and permanent fashion in the notebook. With the development of computing and the widespread use of digital tools, the laboratory notebooks are, little by little, transforming into scrapbooks.

Wikis, Clickers and Online Quizzes - Safe Places to Fail

Published March 30, 2014  |  Chemistry

Michael Lautman Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

How do you learn if you don’t do something wrong? If you’re a research scientist, 95% of the things you do are wrong. You celebrate those tiny little bits that you get right. Technology provides opportunities for students to learn from their mistakes safely. The true wisdom for the teacher is discovering what students don’t know in order to guide them to knowledge.

The One-On-One Interview as an Innovative Assessment Method

Published May 6, 2020  |  Chemistry

Caroline Cormier Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Véronique Turcotte Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
François Arseneault-Hubert Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Bruno Voisard Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

The one-on-one interview ensures equity when we evaluate our students’ learning. In the context of distance education, this innovative method of evaluation could allow us to circumvent the potential integrity problems that distance evaluation can create. Here we discuss how to implement it, with tips and advice drawn from our practice.

Evernote and Teaching

Published September 21, 2014  |  Chemistry

Carole Emilie Baddour, PhD Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

Like all addictions, it started innocently. I heard so much talk about Evernote from others, that my journey simply began out of curiosity. I wanted to know for myself what it was and how to use it. A few years ago, I started using Evernote for my personal affairs and I fell in love. It was such a powerful organizational tool and I was hooked. Evernote allowed me to have everything I could possibly need (such as documents, audio files, annotations and website clippings) stored in once place and synced across every device I used. I loved Evernote so much in my personal life that I decided to bring it into my chemistry classes.

Producing Videos with Tablets to Facilitate Student Review

Published April 9, 2018  |  Chemistry

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Shazia Syed Teacher, Heritage College

Since Chemistry can be a challenging subject for students, I am always looking for creative ways to engage the students and to more effectively share the subject matter. With the realization that students often turn to online videos as a learning resource, I decided to create my own. In doing so, I could provide the students with videos that would be specific to their learning needs. After researching a few solutions, I began using an app on my tablet called ShowMe to produce summary videos for my students.

We’re making a list and checking it twice!

Published December 15, 2013  |  Chemistry

Murray Bronet Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College
Petra Turkewitsch Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

As part of a collaborative laboratory course, the authors are creating an online cooperative science platform between students in the Gaspé and students at John Abbott. In order to test the use of both Google Docs and Moodle forums for writing an on-line collaborative lab report, a colleague was asked to conduct a two-week pilot study of the platforms.
