A Collaborative Program-based Approach Supported by Technology

Published April 11, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Mélanie Langlois-Sabourin Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais
Denis Lavoie Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

While he was the person responsible for the course Integrated Placement (Stage d’intégration), offered as part of the 5th semester in the Electrotechnology program, Denis noticed that students had some training gaps in communication, even though this was included within the program objectives. In their placement term reports, the students had to describe 3 problematic situations. Communication skills were a recurring theme. To counteract this difficulty, Denis started integrating some communication theory into his course in order to better prepare his students.

Crowd Sourcing Review Questions with PeerWise

Published September 19, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

The thought of using student-generated content in your teaching may at first seem absurd. However, nowadays the social norm in terms of learning is changing with Web 2.0 websites and applications that are constructed of user-generated rather than expert-generated content. The huge repositories of videos (You Tube), images (Instagram), social profiles (Facebook) all of which have been contributed by other users are now being used for learning. Students are becoming more and more familiar with the value of user-generated content.

I was also able to speak with Stéphan Gaumont-Guay, a teacher at Cégep Limoilou who has been using this approach since 2004. Our meeting place was in a 21st century classroom at the Charlesbourg Campus.

Flipping the Classroom: 3 Different Motives, 3 Different Approaches, with Similar Outcomes

Published March 16, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Studies have shown that students learn better when they actively participate in their learning process and that students also greatly benefit from peer-based learning. The flipped classroom approach integrates well with these principles, but the task of implementing this type of approach can seem daunting. So, what motivates a teacher to flip their classroom? Does implementing this practice result in an improvement in student grades? Does this approach require the use of complex software applications and programs?

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.

Getting Ready for the Return: Some Articles to Review

Published August 19, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

Whether you are still on vacation or back to work, you probably weren’t saved from the numerous advertisements announcing the imminent return to the classroom which began cropping up in mid-July. I think that it is better to get back in the beat slowly, which is why I thought you might want to take a look at some of our publications from June 2016 that featured our favourite articles and end of year events. Sometimes forgotten due to the frenetic pace of vacation (I won’t hold it against you!), these articles surely deserve a second chance.

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.
