Collaboration Fosters Active Learning

Published December 5, 2012  | 

Eric Lozowy Faculty Dean - Science and General Studies, Vanier College

The new active learning classroom represents for Eric Lozowy what the Quebec College Network can be at its best. It is about innovation and partnerships. It is also about collaboration and student centeredness. In other words, it is about a community of teachers, professionals and managers getting together and exchanging ideas and dreams to better serve the needs of students.

Active Learning

Published September 3, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

Videos, Google Forms and the Flipped Classroom

Published August 24, 2015  |  Physics

Emmanuelle Goulet Teacher, Cégep du Vieux Montréal

It was a bit of a fluke that I integrated the flipped classroom approach into my pedagogy during the winter of 2012. In the beginning, it was a solution to ensure that classes would start up again after the student strike. Since then I have been using this method by choice and for the pleasure of the experience of flipping some of my classes. With the right tools and the support of the ICT Education Advisor from my college, the transition to a flipped classroom went very well.

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.

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.

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.
