Organize Your Course on Moodle to Facilitate Student Learning

Published March 31, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Gina Lavine Teacher, Cégep de Trois-Rivières

Course organization is one of the ways a teacher can help students succeed in an online course. Although I am an experienced teacher, I had never worked with Moodle before the pandemic, and it then became mandatory in my college. After an exploratory tour of the Moodle platform with a colleague, I set about adapting and transferring my course content in the advanced ESL (English Second Language) course. I want to share a few tips with you.

Published March 21, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Isabelle Delage Adapted Services Counsellor, Collège Montmorency

Because of confinement and distance learning, students have difficulty motivating themselves behind their screens and focusing on one task at a time. Inspired by the Thèsez-vous activities offered to graduate students, I mobilized several colleagues to develop an online coaching service dedicated to the college student community.

A Program Offered in Blended Learning… By Choice! - Creating a Feeling of “Being There” in the Context of Distance Learning

Published March 15, 2021  |  Auxiliary Techniques in Justice

Marion Frappier-Routhier Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles
Josianne Landry Allard Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

In 2020, while many programs turned to distance or blended learning out of obligation, we, teachers in the new Paralegal Technology program at Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles, did it by choice. Our program is in its 2nd year of existence and it was planned from the beginning that, from this year on, it would be offered online. We are extremely satisfied with how the first semester unfolded and very optimistic about the future.

Marion Frappier-Routhier Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles
Josianne Landry Allard Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

In 2020, as many programs were forced to turn to distance or blended learning, we, teachers in the new Paralegal Technology program of the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles, did it by choice. Our program is in its 2nd year of existence and, for a long time, the plan had been that from this year on, the program would be offered online. For us, one of the key elements of this new program was to bet on the authenticity of the learnings.

A Never-Ending Story: Writing, Creating and Sharing as a Breach in Social Distancing

Published March 4, 2021  |  Languages and Literature

Arianne Caron-Poirier Teacher, Cégep de La Pocatière
Phillip Laterreur recreation technician, Cégep de La Pocatière
Mathieu Coulombe Documentation technician, Cégep de La Pocatière

For a few years, Phillip Laterreur, a recreational technician at Cégep de La Pocatière, has had the unfulfilled idea of a student writing project that is long term and prone to a certain slowness. However, in a regular (and normal) session, everything goes excessively fast and it is more difficult to set up longer-term sociocultural projects within the CEGEP. With the COVID-19 pandemic, time has changed its tempo. By approaching Arianne Caron-Poirier, a literature teacher, and Mathieu Coulombe, a documentation technician, Phillip Laterreur was able to give life to Une histoire sans fin (A never-ending story) [in French], an engaging free-form writing project that takes the shape of a WordPress blog.


Keeping Track of Students During Asynchronous Activities

Catherine Rhéaume Editor, Profweb

When we give our students activities to complete asynchronously, especially if they are staggered over many weeks, it is pertinent to have strategies to accompany them and to help them develop their autonomy.

Immersive Virtual Reality: An Experiential and Professionalizing Pedagogical Approach

Published February 28, 2021  |  Building and Public Works Technology

Dominic Carmichael IT Educational Advisor, Collégial du Séminaire de Sherbrooke
Mylène Moliner-Roy Teacher, Collégial du Séminaire de Sherbrooke

In the fall of 2019, Mylène Moliner-Roy taught Architectural Modeling and Presentation I for the very first time. In this course, her students learn computer-aided drafting with the Revit Architecture software program. Preparing a new course is always a good opportunity to update knowledge and integrate new technologies. During a presentation by Dominic Carmichael on the pedagogical potential of immersive virtual reality (IVR) with a head-mounted display, she felt compelled to integrate this technology into her teaching.


AI-based Apps and Accessibility Functions on Smartphones

Published February 22, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Assistive technologies are increasingly part of mainstream use, like audio books, predictive text or text production apps. I recently interviewed Rosie Arcuri, who has a great deal of knowledge of these technologies to learn more about the potential of smartphones as an assistive technology in the classroom. It would be beneficial, she says, if all people were aware of these technologies.


Digital Tools to Leverage the Power of Peer Assessment

Published February 21, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Alexandre Enkerli Educational Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation
Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Teachers spend countless hours correcting student work because feedback is critical to students’ learning process. Regrettably, an important portion of such feedback is not understood or deemed irrelevant by students, or worse yet, left unread. How can we get students to understand the important learning that happens when they interact with feedback given during assessment activities? One answer is to have them engage in the process themselves, in the form of peer assessment.

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.
