Published January 11, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

On January 9th, 2015, Profweb attended the Belles Rencontres de l’ARC (Association pour la recherché au collegial). Throughout the day, many resource-people presented funding opportunites geared towards educational establishments, researchers and college students. In order to support research in the college milieu, Profweb made a commitment to share these potential sources of funding with the Teachers, Education Advisors and other stakeholders from the college network that make up its target audience.

Jane Petring Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

As technology becomes cheaper and more accessible around the world, textbooks, whether digital or paper, will continue to play a prominent role in education, but we can expect them to be enhanced, enlivened and enriched with Web 2.0 applications.

Published September 29, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Chantal Desrosiers Techno-pedagogical Advisor, MEES

In the fall of 2016, I attended the CIRTA Colloquium (Communauté pour l’innovation et la recherche sur les technologies dans l’enseignement/apprentissage) at Université Laval. One of the streams was devoted to digital game-based learning, in collaboration with the Serious Games Society. Here, I propose to address this topic in terms of possible benefits for the learner, while retracing a set of games available to colleagues across the college network

The College Network Is Getting Serious About Serious Gaming

Published September 28, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

I believe it was Bill Shakespeare who said “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.” He may have been on to something, as the college network showed its playful side during the Serious Games Conference, held at Vanier College on August 7th, 2015.

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.

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.

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.
