What is ‘Unlocking Research’?

Published September 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Unlocking Research is a guide developed by the library staff at the Saint-Lambert Campus of Champlain College to help college level students navigate their way through the research process from the initial definition and development of a research topic to the final citation of sources in the bibliography. Unlike many similar tools, Unlocking Research targets the college level student, avoiding topics such as how to write theses, which are too advanced, and focuses on topics where college students often have difficulties. For example, there is information on how to recognize the elements of a bibliography because college students trying to do a bibliography may not recognize the difference between the article author and the editor of a book or the title of a book and the title of the chapter. Unlocking Research and associated Glossary were created with the help of a grant from the Entente Canada Québec.

Audio Feedback To Give Meaning To Marking

Published November 17, 2017  |  French (Language and Literature)

Jean-François Legault Teacher, Collège de Valleyfield

To mark my students’ essays, I have turned to giving audio feedback. I can see real benefits in this for both my students and me. It gives a lot more meaning to grading. In audio mode the number of detailed comments that can be left increases dramatically when compared to written comments. The number of grade reviews in my classes has also decreased significantly since I have been using this method.

Unlocking Research Everywhere

Published September 1, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Nicole Haché Library Coordinator, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

The library at Champlain Saint-Lambert has an amazing support from our campus director, Don Shewan. Knowing there were grants available, he came to me a couple of years ago looking for a project idea from the library. I came up with the idea to develop more information literacy tools and videos. Given the impact that we had with our students’ academic successes from that project, I can now expect a phone call asking, “Do you have a project?” whenever funds are available. I therefore need to keep scanning the blogosphere and twittersphere for trends in academic librarianship. This keeps ideas with respect to different technology related projects that could help not only our students but also other colleges and libraries within the province simmering on the back burner.

Although two of us teach at Champlain College’s Saint Lambert campus and the third at the Lennoxville campus, we have been working together on a SALTISE mini-grant.

Mobile Technology for Mobile Learning

Published September 11, 2006  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Thibault Editor, Profweb

No one questions the impact that information systems technology has had on pedagogical activities. Computer programs which allow classroom content to be digitized and information to be stored and shared individually or as part of a network all broaden the learning environment.  Therefore, computer labs, which are no longer the only places where pedagogical activities can be executed using information systems technology, are being progressively replaced by such innovations as the virtual classroom and the home office. Students now have the possibility of connecting to a network, with their laptops or desktops, in the classroom or at home.

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.
