Active learning online in this Humanities course using blended learning requires a level of autonomy and commitment on the part of students, as well as a willingness to work collaboratively. There is little chance to simply receive information passively in class!

Simon Côté-Massicotte Editor, Profweb

Virtual team teaching, or VTT, consists of having students from different colleges, often in different regions, collaborate on assignments or projects in a synchronous manner using online communication tools, in class. Invaluable in courses where the student is invited to learn about other cultures and languages, VTT has the potential to enhance almost any course.

Hard Truths – Sonic and Otherwise

Published March 28, 2010  |  Humanities

Roger Haughey Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

People play and listen to music without really knowing what and how they are learning. In the second year of CCDMD's English-Language Materials Development Assistance Program Call for Submissions, I applied for a grant to turn the multimedia material in the course Sonic Truths: Popular Music and Knowledge into a course pack. The idea of the project was to give teachers and students the tools to move beyond the charms of music and submit it, and our relationship with it, to analysis with the help of Information Technology.

Meandering Between Curriculum and Website

Published October 21, 2012  |  Humanities

Gabriel Flacks Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Researching local, provincial, national and international NGOs while teaching in the Humanities department of a cegep, it struck Gabe Flacks that there was a serendipitous connection between a curriculum where students were being asked to write and learn about what they cared about and researching how to foster change in that area. The dynamic relationship between the Internet resources used in his course and the course itself is not linear, they have evolved together and their current iteration is newsactivist.com.

A New Spin on Oral Presentations with Tablets and YouTube

Heidi Quinsey Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

I believe that it is important for students to have the ability to express themselves. Working on oral presentations plays a crucial role in helping them to develop this ability. I became disenchanted over time with the traditional ‘one shot, make-it-or-break-it’ way of managing individual presentations for my classes. More recently, I have enlisted the use of tablets and YouTube in my Humanities: Knowledge course as means of capturing my students’ oral presentations and offering them a way to improve their ability to prepare these presentations.
