Turning Feedback into Feedforward with the REPAIR Method

Published February 9, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

As teachers, most of us abhor likening education to business. Nonetheless, certain management and business-related strategies can be relevant in an educational setting. One such concept is feedforward, an assessment technique advocated by communications consultant Joe Hirsch, which may prove particularly useful for teachers giving formative feedback as part of a competency-based assessment strategy. This article synthesizes Joe Hirsch’s book The Feedback Fix as well as his blog posts on the topic, and applies the main concepts to a pedagogical context.

A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Published September 12, 2016  |  Chemistry

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

The laboratory notebook is indispensable within many scientific disciplines, as it constitutes the "memory of an experiment." The content is traditionally written by hand in a spiral-bound notebook. The observations,  measurements, calculations and results are recorded in a chronological and permanent fashion in the notebook. With the development of computing and the widespread use of digital tools, the laboratory notebooks are, little by little, transforming into scrapbooks.

Hubert.ai Chats with Your Students to Obtain Course Feedback

Published November 1, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

While obtaining student feedback has been an integral part of my teaching practices from the very beginning, it was never a truly satisfying or enjoyable activity. Over the years, I experimented with different ways of obtaining feedback, most of which were either very labour-intensive (open-ended questions) or overly formalised (multiple-choice questions or ratings). The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) has reached a point where chatbots can now handle text-based conversations and analyze them. This term, I am experimenting with Hubert.ai, a platform that harnesses the power of AI to obtain meaningful feedback through chat sessions with my students. So far, this has proven to be an effective and engaging format for everyone involved.

Published August 27, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Caroline Demers Teacher, Cégep Garneau

Microsoft Office OneNote is a very powerful tool for centralizing all documents, resources, and notes of a course or project in one place.

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.
