Published April 2, 2007  | 

Luc Desautels Teacher, Cégep régional de Lanaudière - Terrebonne

It is common knowledge that expenses associated with research are enormous. Everyone involved in research — the people conducting it, the institutions making a living from it, even the companies supporting it — are all too often stung by its costs. On the personal level, should employees of both community colleges and college technology transfer centres consider research as a lifelong means of furthering their training? Is it worth the cost?

Discord: An Efficient Communication Tool for Pedagogical Purposes

Published May 8, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Simon Côté-Massicotte Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

When the lockdown began, what now seems like years ago, I, like so many other teachers, had to figure out a way to continue giving my course as seamlessly as possible. Since my literature courses were heavily reliant on student interactions and regular exchanges, my first focus was to find a flexible, efficient, and reliable communication tool. After seeing the success of the Discord server created by my colleagues in the Video Game Design program at Limoilou, I decided to experiment with the program and it proved to be exactly what I was looking for.

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

This week, at our editorial meeting, we had a shining example of the value of the APOP U R on-Line Conference. The meeting was held using the Via Interface. Having gone to the conference with the Via Interface, we all agreed that the technology was perfect for our meetings, particularly when it is so inexpensive. I heard that a one hour session may cost as low as five dollars per participant. What a pleasure to see the expressions and body language of the other people on the Animaweb team!

How and Why to Use Apps In The ESL Classroom

Published March 3, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Josianne Beaudoin-Lacroix Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

I have been interested in integrating technology in my classroom since I started teaching ESL (English as a second language) at Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. I find it is even more important at the college level where many lessons can still be dominated by teachers talking.

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.
