Inspiring Portraits: Rafael Scapin — A Generous and Gentle EdTech Guru

Published October 14, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The Quebec college network is a dynamic place where stakeholders often work across institutional borders to advance higher education in the province. For me, there are few people that embody the network’s culture of sharing and collaboration more than Rafael Scapin, the mild-mannered intellectual educational technologist with a soft Brazilian accent from Dawson College. His vast knowledge of techno-pedagogical approaches and more specifically, his guru status with the Moodle learning management platform have made him somewhat of a celebrity in the college network! But there’s much more to him than meets the eye!

Is there an educator that you look up to? Have you met someone in the college network that inspires you to try out new things in your educational practice, or simply to be a better person? When working with one of your peers, have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are challenged and stimulated from an intellectual perspective? Alexandre Enkerli is such a person.

A flurry of activity on the French side of Profweb in January and February has accompanied the flurries of snow and cold temperatures.

Active Learning

Published September 3, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

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.
