ICT Pedagogical Resources for the Authentic Teaching of Physics

Published December 2, 2019  |  Physics

Camille Arpin Editor, Profweb

Making learning physics more concrete and helping students perceive its real-life application is an everyday challenge for physics teachers. To help them face that challenge, Profweb offers an updated version of its discipline-related file published in 2015 on its website.

Contributions on Free and Open Source Software

Published February 20, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

Free and open source software (FOSS) provides an interesting alternative to commercially-available products. With continued pressure for colleges to find new ways to respect their budget parameters and increased privacy concerns related to what information our software is collecting and communicating to the multinational corporations that create most of our software, it is important that the free and open source movement continue to thrive so that we have alternative means for us to use our technology.

Stepping Towards Inclusive Pedagogy with Screen Reader-Friendly Course Material

Published April 26, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Inclusive pedagogy is a growing approach throughout the CEGEP network. Many teachers are seeking ways to adapt their teaching strategies to be more inclusive. On February 20, 2017, I attended an APOP webinar entitled: Développer des pratiques pédagogiques inclusives (Developing Inclusive Pedagogical Practices). Among the tools and strategies discussed, one in particular struck me, which was the benefits of using of text-to-speech, or screen readers, for a variety of learning disabilities (dyslexia, concussions, ADHD, etc.). I wondered about what would make documents easily “read” by screen readers and what teachers could do to ensure their course material is accessible. It turns out that it is not complicated to make documents fit the criteria of accessibility.

Virtual Language Exchanges: Making Connections with Mixxer

Published May 1, 2017  |  English (Second Language)

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

For the past few years I have been experimenting with online collaboration with other teachers in the college network as part of my English as a Second Language courses. Last year, we were fortunate to have obtained a grant from the Entente Québec-Canada that permitted myself and some colleagues to familiarize ourselves with synchronous and asynchronous communication pedagogy, which became the subject of a Real Life Story on Profweb. Although I learned a lot through this experience, I felt that we could still make some gains in the efficiency of my use of our active learning lab and that we had yet to exploit all the possibilities these labs and Google tools could offer to both teachers and learners.

Teaching Terminology with Tools That Engage Students

Published February 2, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

The foundation of many courses relies on students learning new vocabulary: geography, biology, marketing, tourism, economics, physiotherapy, and the list goes on. For many disciplines, these important words must be mastered before a teacher can dive into the course subject matter. Finding ways to help students learn terminology through context and meaning, while making it fun and interesting, is a challenge. Teaching English for Tourism and other courses in the Bilingual Tourism Program (CEGEPs Limoilou and Champlain-St. Lawrence) has given me the opportunity to try different approaches and test various tools.

Articles and Real Life Stories to Read (or Read Again) before the Winter Semester Begins

Published January 10, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

It is not always easy to find the time, in the middle of the semester, to read all of the new articles from Profweb attentively and to integrate new practices inspired by your colleagues in the college network. I am therefore suggesting that you take a second look at 6 publications put online during the second half of the fall semester 2016.

The Low-Tech Active Learning Classroom at Cégep de Sept-Îles

Published October 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Sharon Coyle Teacher, Cégep de Sept-Îles

The term active learning classroom usually evokes images of a sleek space packed with all of the latest technological bells and whistles. Not so at Cégep de Sept-Îles. To fit our teaching and learning needs and goals, we consciously opted for a classroom where inter-activity – not technology – plays a central role. This being 2017, of course it doesn’t mean we relegated electronic devices altogether. Here’s the story that explains the “how” and “why” of our low-tech active learning classroom.

Motivating Students to Write by Changing Their Medium from Paper and Pen to ICT Platforms

Published May 2, 2016  | 

Andy Van Drom Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

Keeping students motivated to practice writing and improve their English language skills is challenging. Today’s students don’t get excited over writing a text and handing it in, just to have it evaluated – and with good reason. The integration of ICT into my pedagogical strategies has allowed me to make writing activities more dynamic and appealing for students. These techniques don’t revolutionize the content, nor the objective of the action of writing, but the platforms I have used in my overall approach have definitely improved the students’ enthusiasm for writing and the creativity that is brought to the assignments. Instead of writing “for the sake of writing”, students are truly communicating again.

Telepresence: Distance Learning with Students in Class

Published January 19, 2018  |  3D Animation and Computer Generated Imagery

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Telepresence is a type of online learning. In fact, it is more aptly described as an improved videoconference that tries to replicate face-to-face communication without the constraint of students and teachers having to be in the same room.

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.

Google Classroom to Support Sustainable Learning in the Dental Prosthesis Program

Julie Jacob Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I teach in the Dental Prosthesis Program. During the winter session, I give the course Conception et confection de pièces squelettiques II to students in their 4th semester in the program. This course allows them to finish acquiring the skills essential for them to succeed the integration activity. However, the students do not have the opportunity to practice these skills between their 4th and 6th semester of studies. This means that 3rd year students sometimes have difficulty finding theoretical or practical notions from the year before. For this reason, I set out to find both, a way to ensure the safekeeping of course contents and a means of making the content easily accessible to the students.
