Published November 28, 2017  |  English (Second Language)

Netta Gorman Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Have you ever had a sore hand after writing almost identical comments on the copies of all your students, again and again? Did you know that when correcting digital documents, you can avoid this by setting up automatic substitution codes? In addition, by creating keyboard shortcuts, you can give students detailed feedback. I do it in Google Docs, but it's possible with other word processing tools!

Published April 27, 2016  |  English (Second Language)

Johanne Morin Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec is a bastion of the French language where students have few authentic opportunities to engage in English conversation with Anglophones or English-speaking Allophones.
