Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Third in our discipline-specific articles on resources available on Profweb is Phystics - Discipline 203. What is it about Physics? So many teachers in Physics Departments across the province are creatively open to information technology to the point where the Physics Department in every single school is, if not the most, one of the most with it departments in using information technology. It’s amazing!

Oops! I Accidentally Flipped my Classroom

Published October 7, 2012  |  Physics

Michael Dugdale Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Nathaniel Lasry and Michael Dugdale unintentionally flipped their classrooms by trying to enrich delivery of just-in-time teaching in electricity and magnetism courses. Students were asked to do reading assignments accompanied by some short open-ended questions. They arrived at the lecture having read the material, and having acquired a vision of what parts were easy and what parts were difficult for them. Although this activity didn't replace the lectures; it opened up a surprising amount of time in class for active learning activities.

Engaging Students in an Active Learning Classroom with the iPad and Apple TV

Published May 5, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Nadine Korte Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Motivating students in Quantitative Methods and History classes can be a challenge, especially when a class begins at 8 a.m. Keeping students engaged is also a challenge, with their attachment to smartphones and social media. I see this attachment as a positive opportunity to harness with my students, and to show them how they can use this technology as a tool for learning. Over the past few semesters I have addressed student motivation and engagement by integrating the use of my iPad along with their devices using a problem-based learning approach. Along the way, I discovered strategies to overcome student shyness and to help students take pride in the work they produce.

A great deal of confusion continues to exist around the terms open-source software, free software, and other software that is known as ‘proprietary.’ There are already a number of terms out there without adding the notion of cloud-based software to the mix. Let’s try and make things a little clearer.

Learning About Microbes in an Active Learning Classroom

Published May 19, 2013  |  Nursing

Priscila Castillo-Ruiz Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

I have been working with Joan Kearvell and Isabelle Menard to develop a series of activities that mimic microbial-related infections, so that nursing students get to apply their conceptual knowledge to real life situations. 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.

3 Platforms to Create Video-Based Tasks that Actively Engage Students

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In 2018, cell phones, tablets and computers combined with free applications or software give us the ability to create high quality video and broadcast it within moments. 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.
