Published November 1, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Caroline Demers Teacher, Cégep Garneau
Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Teamwork is often not easy for college students. In order to truly collaborate, rather than simply separate the work to be done, students need to form a cohesive and committed team. This is difficult enough when students are in the same room, but in a distance or hybrid learning environment, they are separated from each other and often don't know how to move forward effectively.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
