Creating a virtual community one minute at a time

Published September 16, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Camille Arpin Editor, Profweb

With the precipitous closure of CEGEPs due to COVID-19, many activities that make CEGEPs stimulating living environments and showcase student talent were cancelled. Gilbert Forest, a socio-cultural facilitator at Cégep André-Laurendeau, and its student services teamed up with the Théâtre Desjardins (a performance hall located inside Cégep André-Laurendeau) and la Brigade Liseurs Publics [in French] (the Public Readers Brigade) to create and maintain a Facebook page, La Minute Cultur.AL [in French], to connect with the students and break the isolation caused by the confinement. I spoke with Gilbert Forest to learn more about this unifying project.

Fighting “Zoom Fatigue” While Making Your Classes More Efficient

Published September 14, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Catherine Rhéaume Editor, Profweb

In these times of physical distancing, are you suffering from “Zoom Fatigue”? Has the abundance of video conferences on your schedule led you to put yourself in the shoes of your students and ask yourself how they experienced a complete, full-time semester of remote learning? If synchronous video conferences definitely have a place in college education, each teacher can ask themselves what moments really need to be experienced live in a video conference and which ones can be executed otherwise.

In February and March 2019, I attended 2 online activities on the same theme. Here I discuss what I learned from these activities in terms of creating a positive classroom climate that encourages student participation.

Physical education: a mobile application validates and stimulates physical activity outside the classroom

Published September 2, 2020  |  Physical Education

Rachel Surprenant Teacher, Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu

Can free mobile applications such as Runkeeper and Runtastic help ensure that students in  the 103 Physical Education class are engaging in the physical activity they are supposed to outside of class? This is what I believe after testing it with my students and studying the topic for my master's essay [in French]. By also asking my students to send me pictures of themselves while they do their physical activity, I get authentic results and, most importantly, I make the course more motivating for the students.

Emergency Transition to Distance Education - A Math Teacher's Story

Published June 7, 2020  |  Mathematics

Patricia Lapointe Educational Advisor, Cégep Limoilou
Geneviève Gagnon Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

In my case, the decision as to whether to teach in a synchronous or asynchronous format was easy to make. I was already teaching a course in synchronous mode with the Online Business Management cohort, so it was natural for me to continue in this mode. It's true that having virtual appointments set in the schedule makes it easy to supervise the students.

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.
