Big Ideas Facilitating a Shift Toward Distance Learning

Published March 27, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

John Spencer Teacher, George Fox University

As an education professor, I’ve had the opportunity to help teachers develop online and hybrid courses. One of the most common questions people asked me was, “How do I convert my face-to-face course into an online course?” The truth is, you cannot convert it. Learning isn’t like a file that converts between a .doc and a PDF and a Google Doc. We can’t simply substitute new tools and do the same exact activity. But what if we chose a different approach? What if we asked, “How do I transform my course?” rather than “How do I convert it?” The following are a few ideas to consider as you shift toward online / distance learning.

Published March 22, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Camille Arpin Editor, Profweb

Planning a distance learning course takes time and a lot of preparation, but sometimes the context in which we teach forces us to make these changes in a very short period of time. Here is an overview of educational resources from Profweb and the college network that will help you make this transition.

Turning Novels Into Engaging Multisensory Experiences

Published March 18, 2020  |  English (Second Language)

Rebecca Peters Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In the fall 2019 semester, my students in the course Langue anglaise et culture (English 102) read Born a Crime by Trevor Noah, which details the author’s growing up in his native South Africa during the Apartheid era. To help students connect with the book’s subject matter and social context in a more concrete and meaningful manner, I turned the reading experience into a multisensory experience by designing learning activities that involved virtual reality (VR) and audio content.

Teaching Students to Manage Projects with ProjectLibre

Published March 17, 2020  |  Physical Sciences and Technologies

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

ProjectLibre is an open source software that is useful for creating project schedules. Michel Bélanger, a teacher at the Collège Montmorency, and many of his colleagues use ProjectLibre for several of their courses in the Civil Engineering Technology program. He uses the software to show students how to create a project schedule by sequencing and ordering tasks with the objective of evaluating the time and cost to run the project. I had the opportunity to discuss this approach with Michel at the beginning of the Winter 2020 semester.

Using Moodle to Create a Paperless Literature Course

Published March 10, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Simon Côté-Massicotte Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

The phrase “paperless literature course” feels wrong. Whether because of the strong association of literature with physical books, or the perception of cellphones, computers, and tablets as distractions, there is something counterintuitive about using ICTs to teach literature.

How and Why to Use Apps In The ESL Classroom

Published March 3, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Josianne Beaudoin-Lacroix Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

I have been interested in integrating technology in my classroom since I started teaching ESL (English as a second language) at Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. I find it is even more important at the college level where many lessons can still be dominated by teachers talking.

A Program-Specific Approach to Note Taking in the Digital Era

Published February 28, 2020  |  Applied Arts

Mathieu Plasse Teacher, Cégep de Sainte-Foy

In the industry graphic designers need to know, master, and constantly use emerging software and technologies. This is inevitably reflected in the classrooms of graphic design students. As graphic design teachers at Cégep de Sainte-Foy, in a laptop program, my colleague Anne-Claire Delisle and I have created a flexible way for our students to take notes on the computers that they all have in the classroom. We wanted each student’s notes to reflect their individuality. By coming up with their own notes, the students are obligated to invest themselves in their studies and better integrate the content.

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 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.
