On Using Stellarium: “There Is Nothing Wrong with Treating Yourself a Little”

Published November 3, 2015  |  Physics

Karine Aeschlimann Teacher, Collège Montmorency

Stellarium is a free, open-source planetarium software used to create dynamic 3D sky projections that imitate what a person would see with the naked eye or with a telescope. Among other functions, this software allows the user to obtain full views of the Milky Way and of constellations with their respective boundaries. It may be used at home for fun or instructional purposes, or in a classroom context, as was the case with my “Astronomie et astrophysique” class.

Mixing Academia with Wikipedia

Published February 15, 2009  |  Physics

Simon Villeneuve Teacher, Cégep de Chicoutimi

Because this encyclopedia and its contents are by their very nature collaborative and seek to make all human knowledge accessible, I considered asking the students in my astronomy course to share their knowledge of astronomy through contributions to Wikipedia articles related to this topic. This is how the Wikipedia page Projet : Cégep de Chicoutimi saw the light of day in the French language edition of this resource.

Immediate Feedback to Students Using the Branching Feature of Google Forms

Published April 13, 2015  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

As a basic instructional principle, learners need feedback, and to receive maximum benefit from feedback, it should be supplied as soon as possible after an assessment or ideally after each question. I recently experimented with Google Forms to find a way to provide this immediate feedback.

A Tech-Cautious Teacher Successfully Experiments with PeerWise in Physics Class

Published March 1, 2019  |  Physics

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Behi Fatholahzadeh has taught Physics at Marianopolis College for 7 years. She admits that she never really liked the idea of going before the class right before the mid-term exam and somehow summarizing the entire content then taking 3 questions. She was looking to be more effective with the mid-term review classes. At the PeerWise worshop at Saltise in 2018 (the object of an article in Profweb), she discovered a tool that might be able to help.

Facebook Groups to Stimulate Student Interest in Subject Matter

Published April 20, 2018  |  Physics

Éric Laflamme Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In the winter and fall sessions of 2017, I used Facebook to help students develop an awareness of the concrete applications of the subject that I was teaching them. The first time I used it was in an elective astronomy course. The second time was in the Electricity and Magnetism course in Natural Science (Health Science profile).

20 New Problems for the Website: Problem-Based Learning for College Physics

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach has been proven to be successful in several different disciplines and physics is one of the them. Searching for problems designed for all 3 fields of physics at the college level, Olivier Tardif-Paradis, Mathieu Riopel and Alexandre April, of Cégep Garneau, launched themselves into a 2-year project of creating new problems for the existing website by the CCDMD, Problem-Based Learning for College Physics: A Website for Life-like Activities.
