Using Concept Maps to Promote Deeper Learning of Grammar

Published January 21, 2019  |  Languages and Literature

Susan Drolet Teacher, Cégep Garneau

I've never liked flow charts and mind maps. They're supposed to simplify things (I think) but I find them confusing. So when I took a Performa course by Christian Barrette, an expert in concept maps, I was really stepping out of my comfort zone. But that's when I learned that while a concept map resembles a mind map, it's much different. During the course, I had to develop concept maps I could use with my students and I became so enamoured with their potential to help students learn, that they became the subject of my master's research paper. I've since used them regularly in class and the results have been quite positive.

Owning Our History With Podcasts and Cognitive Maps

Published March 8, 2015  |  History

Martine Dumais Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

I begin each semester by telling my students that history is not something to be learned by heart. Rather, it is a kind of material that we work with. The imagery I like to use is sculpting with clay. They laugh a bit at this, but the analogy helps them to understand that they need to play with the material, as well as to interpreting and integrate it. This is how the subject matter becomes intellectually stimulating and, as a result, easier to learn.

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.
