Communicate your Passion to the World

Published April 14, 2009  | 

Lynn Lapostolle Director General, ARC
Sébastien Piché Project Manager, ARC

How can college research findings be disseminated more widely and in a better way? What is the best way to get research publicized and recognized? ARC’s current work on the history of college research shows that it is faced with two major challenges: the introduction of college research into collaborative networks and the widespread dissemination of research findings in full. Is it possible to expand the reach of research and innovation using all the resources, in particular IT, that are available to the college network? This spring, the Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC) invites you to discuss these issues with people who share your passion for research, including renowned international expert Daniel Jacobi, who is a professor at the Université d’Avignon.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
