Laboratory Procedures Taught Through an Interactive Course

Published November 24, 2013  |  Physics

Éric Laflamme Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit
Benoît Villeneuve Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

Éric Laflamme and Benoît Villeneuve, of Collège Édouard-Montpetit, have created an interactive course on measurement and experimental uncertainty in labs. This course involved the creation of a new online platform allowing students to develop laboratory skills, which has been given at two cegeps within the Montreal region.

Using PSI (The Personalized System of Instruction) for Active Learning

Published August 26, 2012  |  Physics

Rocco Iafigliola Teacher, Marianopolis College

PSI helps learners take control of their own learning. It fell into disfavour because of the heavy correction load required to provide feedback. The advent of online platforms such as  MasteringPhysics with self-correcting tests has allowed teachers to revisit this strategy.

Flipping to Promote Active Learning and Engagement in a Physics Classroom

Published April 1, 2019  |  Physics

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Patrick Rogers teaches Physics at Marianopolis College. Over the past 5 years he has redesigned his students’ learning environment. He now uses the flipped classroom approach to allow for more time to activate student engagement in class.

Videos, Google Forms and the Flipped Classroom

Published August 24, 2015  |  Physics

Emmanuelle Goulet Teacher, Cégep du Vieux Montréal

It was a bit of a fluke that I integrated the flipped classroom approach into my pedagogy during the winter of 2012. In the beginning, it was a solution to ensure that classes would start up again after the student strike. Since then I have been using this method by choice and for the pleasure of the experience of flipping some of my classes. With the right tools and the support of the ICT Education Advisor from my college, the transition to a flipped classroom went very well.

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

Published December 6, 2016  |  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.

Building Great Communities of Practice Together

Published December 1, 2013  |  Physics

Chris Whittaker Teacher, Dawson College

As the new active learning classroom's first semester draws to a close, Chris reflects how the community of practice for active learning has influenced his teaching providing an ingenuity and a creative thrust that comes just by exchanging ideas.

Oops! I Accidentally Flipped my Classroom

Published October 7, 2012  |  Physics

Michael Dugdale Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Nathaniel Lasry and Michael Dugdale unintentionally flipped their classrooms by trying to enrich delivery of just-in-time teaching in electricity and magnetism courses. Students were asked to do reading assignments accompanied by some short open-ended questions. They arrived at the lecture having read the material, and having acquired a vision of what parts were easy and what parts were difficult for them. Although this activity didn't replace the lectures; it opened up a surprising amount of time in class for active learning activities.

A Toolbox for a Blended Learning Pilot

Published May 6, 2012  |  Physics

Greg Mulcair Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Greg Mulcair touches upon the tools that he has used to blend information technology and traditional teaching in his Physics course which is part of a pilot project for blended learning at John Abbott College.

Creating Digital Course Notes to Make Learning Easier

Published October 22, 2018  |  Physics

Luc Tremblay Teacher, Collège Mérici

After some 15 years of teaching, I decided to create my own course notes. I used Word (with MathType) for the writing, and saved the files as PDF. I used PaintShop Pro to create the figures. I integrated clickable hyperlinks in my notes, which gives them a an added value when read in their digital format, but they can also be used in a printed format. Besides, that is what students prefer to do. My notes are online on my site, La physique à Mérici (resource in French only), and are accessible to all.

Accelerated Learning with Smartphones in Physics

Published August 28, 2018  |  Physics

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Profweb published an in-depth report which included some considerations when teachers are deciding whether to allow or restrict the use of smartphones in class. At John Abbott College, some physics teachers have found a unexpected way to leverage their student’s penchant for smartphone use by incorporating these devices as tools to teach core concepts in Physics.

Facebook Groups to Stimulate Student Interest in Subject Matter

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).

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

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.
