At her presentation at the 2011 AQPC symposium, it was suggested that an inter-cégep collaborative working group be set up. She submitted a proposal to APOP for support through their APOP_Tandem project for three online meetings using the VIA platform. Collaboration ensued.

Grading Made Easy: Digital Tools to Create Rubrics

Published September 12, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Do you remember marking final evaluations last session? Did you say to yourself, “Never again”? Never again will I give that assignment because it is too long to grade. Do you spend time going over the copies you have just graded because the last copy you read made you realise that there were criteria that you had forgotten to take into account?

Using Geogebra within Moodle to Give Physics Students Instantaneous Feedback

Published April 9, 2019  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

Traditionally, Physics students work with pencil and paper on Physics assessments. In recent semesters, I have been using GeoGebra and Moodle to provide opportunities for my students to interact with Physics-related content and get instantaneous feedback. These tools allow me to better monitor whether they have integrated the learning objectives of my classes and track the friction points, and has ultimately helped to improve their performance in my courses.

Audio Feedback: Customized Follow-up for Students

Published May 3, 2016  |  French (Language and Literature)

Karine Bélair Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

When I am correcting my students’ assignments in my French or Law courses, I often feel the need to go beyond my correction codes. For me, it seems insufficient to simply mark “unclear” or “requires further development.” How can you clarify? What does “requires further development” mean? I really want to reformulate the sentence that requires clarification, and to outline the explanations in order to provide an example. It’s unfortunate that my handwriting is difficult for students to decipher. It’s also unfortunate that their copy looks like a construction site after I have finished my job of editing, crossing out sentences and adding comments, as much within the text as in the margins… That’s why I tried out a new style of providing feedback – audio feedback.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
