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.

Contributions from Physics 203

Published October 26, 2014  |  Physics

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Third in our discipline-specific articles on resources available on Profweb is Phystics - Discipline 203. What is it about Physics? So many teachers in Physics Departments across the province are creatively open to information technology to the point where the Physics Department in every single school is, if not the most, one of the most with it departments in using information technology. It’s amazing!

MIT’s Classrooms of the Future: Now in a Classroom Near You

Published January 24, 2010  |  Physics

Elizabeth Charles Researcher, Dawson College

An adaptation of the innovatively designed science classrooms at MIT can now be found at Dawson College's Physics Department. These spaces illustrate that IT is useful but works best in environments designed to accommodate it.

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.

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.

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.

Reading Reflections and Supportive Student Communities with Visual Classrooms

Published May 16, 2017  |  Physics

Phoebe Jackson Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Physics can be a challenging subject for students, which is why it is essential that they build strong foundations through reading and writing. Even if they do not fully understand the concepts they are reading, it is important to get the learning process started before they come to class. It’s also important to create a positive environment for learning where students are not afraid to take chances or make mistakes. To these ends, I have been experimenting with a technology that has helped to create such a supportive environment for my students.

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.
