Orchestrating Digital Transformation at the Collège d’Alma COlab

Published November 23, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The CEGEPs across Quebec that are situated in regions outside of the province’s large cities are key socio-cultural and economic actors that drive innovation and support businesses in these communities through training, technology transfer and partnerships. The Collège d’Alma is inspiring regional innovation with a new initiative known as the COlab. I recently spoke with COlab consultant Alexandre Enkerli to learn more about their digital transformation projects.

Remote Exams in Teams for an Inclusive, Honest, and Fair Evaluation

Published November 17, 2020  |  Biology

Neerusha Gokool Baurhoo Teacher, Vanier College

In my biology course, to limit plagiarism and cheating while listening to the needs of my students, I am currently experimenting with team exams. On Moodle, the students have 2 hours (in a 1 week period) to answer, as a team, 3 case study questions. I then interview each student to validate their individual demonstration of the competency. I am noticing that the results compare to that of a traditional in-class, supervised evaluation, but the risks of plagiarism or cheating are reduced and the students tell me that they are less stressed and understand the content better.
The trigger: plagiarism during remote evaluations

Dual-Mode Teaching at Cégep Limoilou

Published November 4, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Guillaume Bourbeau Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

For more than a year, I have been experimenting with dual-mode teaching at Cégep Limoilou. In the fall of 2020, my CEGEP entrusted me with the responsibility of equipping my fellow teachers to help them take ownership of dual-mode teaching in order to make their courses functional from the first week of the semester. In this text, I discuss dual-mode teaching, Cégep Limoilou's journey in this format of hybrid learning and my role as a mentor.

Physics teachers, are you looking for a way to help your students visualise vectors in three-dimensional space? We would like to share a protocol for a laboratory experiment (that works both on campus and at a distance). We use this experiment in the Electricity and Magnetism course of the Science Program as an introduction to the study of the phenomena related to magnetism.

Working as a Team at a Distance (part 1). Teams: a Single Ecosystem Bringing Together All Collaborative Functions

Published November 1, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Caroline Demers Teacher, Cégep Garneau
Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Teamwork is often not easy for college students. In order to truly collaborate, rather than simply separate the work to be done, students need to form a cohesive and committed team. This is difficult enough when students are in the same room, but in a distance or hybrid learning environment, they are separated from each other and often don't know how to move forward effectively.

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 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.
