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?

Digital Presentations

Published December 8, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Profweb Editorial team, Profweb

For many teachers, their first foray towards integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) into their pedagogical practice comes through the use of digital presentation software (such as Microsoft PowerPoint) as a visual support for their lectures. Nowadays, these digital slideshows are undoubtedly the most common technology in college-level classrooms. This tool has become the norm and teachers who do not use it are becoming few and far between. Presentation software such as PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, LibreOffice Impress and Prezi all have interesting features (with the last two being freely available over the Internet). That said, they also contain shortcomings and traps that should be avoided. This in-depth report presents various uses of presentation software in class along with tips and advice for using slideshows within an educational context.

Valuing Our Community of Practice: Ongoing Program Evaluation

Published September 23, 2012  |  Multidisciplinary

Lee Ann Johnston, Heritage College

Since all cégeps are required to evaluate their programs of study, Lee Anne Johnston realized that her counterparts in the network were probably experiencing the same type of isolation that she was. 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.

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.

The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.
