Opening conference The danger of an internet without education / Conférence d’ouverture : Les dangers d’un Internet sans éducation (French activity) | Animation : Martin Lessard (ZeroSeconde.com) | Multipurpose Room (5B.16) | Documentation : Slideshow
See description

For Umberto Eco, “the drama of the internet is that it has promoted the village idiot to the status of bearer of truth”. The danger is to have access to everything without the codes necessary to distinguish what is true and what is not. He added that from now on, one of education’s goals will be to teach the art of filtering.

Searching for information in an era of overabundance brings previously unheard of challenges where informational and technological skills become necessary. Understanding the intrinsic advantages and limitations of free access, without any barriers, becomes crucial in today’s world where a monopoly on knowledge is not only in the hands of the experts.

New digital tools, from yesterday’s skyrocketing rise of social media to the impact of tomorrow’s artificial intelligence, including what is being called the Internet of Things or Big Data, our relationship to knowledge hasn’t seen everything yet…

martinlessard-photo-webMartin Lessard is an advisor in web strategy and social media, lecturer and speaker on the impacts of digital technology. He is a technological commentator at Radio-Canada for the program La sphere.  He is the co-author of Les Médias sociaux en entreprise (2012), Guide des meilleurs pratiques en gestion de projet web (2008) and Pourquoi bloguer en contexte d’affaires (2017).

  1. Electronic Lab Workbook / Carnet de laboratoire électronique (CLÉ) (French activity)Animation : Caroline Boucher and Josée Debigaré (Lévis-Lauzon) | Multipurpose Room (5B.16) | Documentation : Slideshow
     See description
    The teaching of experimental chemistry is done using lab workbooks. In the 21st century classroom, the evolution from a paper format to an electronic version is essential. Teachers at the CEGEP de Lévis-Lauzon have experimented with CLE in Moodle using the WIKI OU activity. In a learning context, CLE supports the development of student numeracy. It is also a tool that is easily transferable to other disciplines for recording data (images, text, equations, video, etc.). A tool for training digital citizens!
  2. Creating a website in 30 seconds! / La création d’un site Web en 30 secondes! (French activity) | Animation : Jean-François Nadeau (Outaouais) Room 4E.1 | Documentation : Procedure
     See description

    Creating a website in 30 seconds… Obviously, it takes a little longer to dress it up!

    Google offers in Google Apps a website publisher available to all. Included is a library of site models that determine both the appearance of a website and the organization of pages. Thus, a few clicks are all that are needed to select a site model, whether very colourful or very sober, with either many pages linked to it or, on the contrary, totally empty. Even better: one can create their own models! Many uses are possible: portfolios, project reports, team work space, personal notes, class notes, etc.

    In this workshop, you will:

    • create a website using the models offered
    • configure the site, create, remove and manage pages
    • insert images, Google Doc documents and other elements on a page
    • d’explorer différentes stratégies d’utilisation et de partage.
    • explore different use and sharing strategies.

    Google Site is an application that is available in all Google accounts, whether business, personal or educational.

    For the hands-on activity, please make sure you have:

    • a computer
    • an active gmail account (personal, educational or business).

4:00 PM

Office 365 and working together: where are we? / Office 365 et le travail collaboratif: où en sommes-nous? (French activity) Animation : France Séguin and David Blain (Marie-Victorin) | Multipurpose Rooom (5B.16) | Documentation : Slideshow
See description

With the implementation phase of Windows 7 came the offer of the  Office 365 suite which includes data processing hosting. Faced with this interesting offer, the administration at Cégep Marie-Victorin decided to adoptt and implement this suite in August 2015.

How did the roll-out of this new Office 365 environment, which includes a multitude of features, go? How should the available tools be used in order to optimize our work?

These questions were discussed at our institutional ICT committee and resulted in a targeted action. Collaborative work, linked with the ITC Profile for Students, made us want to undertake the adoption of those features. This was enough to allow us to explore Word On-line, OneNote, group work,…

After offering workshops to teachers and users from different services, we wish to share with you our observations. We will take advantage of this occasion to exchange on your respective realities.

  1. Evaluating ICT and Information Skills / Évaluer les habiletés TIC et informationnelles (French activity) | Animation : Huguette Dupont (Granby) | Conrod’s (2F.4) | Documentation : Slideshow; Note taking
    See description
    There is a consensus at the college level on the importance of developing the information, technology and methodology skills of students. But what does it mean to evaluate the mastery of these skills? How can we recognize the achievement of the objectives of the ICT Profile for Students? Can ICT skills truly be evaluated in an activity designed primarily to develop and evaluate disciplinary competencies in an academic program? If yes, in what conditions, on what should the evaluation be based, and what types of evaluation are recommended? Is a linkage possible between the performance criteria of a discipline competency and measures of the successful accomplishment of the tasks and objectives of ITC skills? Can the requirements proposed in the ICT Profile documents provide a starting point? Is the evaluation of information skills a priority in your college? Have portfolios proven to be a profitable strategy? Does a program’s comprehensive assessment support the evaluation of ICT skills in the context of an integrating activity? As the evaluation of attitudes arouses a great deal of interest in programs, how can those elements of the ICT Profile that touch on ethical issues and behaviours related to technology be evaluated? Can badges contribute to the evaluation of ICT skills? How can the work of the Digital Badges committee be linked to such a reflection? Is there a link between the mastery of ICT skills, students success and first year pedagogy?
    Participants (IT Reps, librarians, teachers) will be invited to share their questions, observations, stories and solutions in order to initiate a reflection that may lead to possible actions in our local milieus and in the working groups of the network.

How to create scenarios for active learning with ITC using OAS / Comment scénariser des activités d’apprentissage actif avec les TIC à l’aide de l’outil d’aide à la scénarisation (OAS) (French activity) | Animation: Bruno Poellhuber (Université de Montréal) | Conrod’s (2F.4) | Documentation : Slideshow
    See description
    Following up on the techno-pedagogical innovations of MOOCs in higher education, and to show teachers how to effectively implement flipped classrooms, we have developed a training program (available both in credit and non-credit formats) that aims to allow teachers to prepare active learning scenarios and to develop effective video clips. We will present how we have worked with groups of ITC advisors and different teachers in the first session. In the next session, “active learning scenarios,” will be accompanied by a mini MOOC and based on a tool that helps users to create scenarios for active learning activities using ICT (http://oas.ccdmd.qc.ca), which guides users step by step in the creation of an active learning scenario by providing both practical and theoretical assistance and also by offering a editing stage. Participants will be able to start preparing a scenario.
  2. Why & How to Teach in an Online Learning Environment (Bilingual activity) Animation: Rafael Scapin, Chantale Giguère and Helen Stavaris (Dawson) | Room 3H.10
    See description
    Thinking of teaching online?

    Preparing for online classes is not quite a simple transfer from the traditional classroom setting. Whether the online class is delivered in a synchronous or asynchronous approach, online teaching requires some “re-orientation” in order to effectively plan a pedagogical strategy to engage students in an online learning environment.

    Join us for a “face-to-face” conversation as Chantale Giguère (synchronous methodology) and Helen Stavaris (asynchronous methodology) share some of their online instructional strategies.

    The College Documentation Centre (CDC) introduces the open archive, EDUQ.info, the new digital repository, by and for the college network. We will present the characteristics of this new information retrieval tool, while introducing the voluntary deposit of the network’s publications, which allows open access, dissemination and long-term preservation of these publications. Each college, organization, community of practice or interest have their own community in EDUQ in which they can deposit their documents to make them available and even full-text searchable to the network and the planet!
  2. The most important features when organizing an active learning classroom:  the contribution of research / Les fonctions les plus importantes dans l’aménagement d’une classe d’apprentissage actif: l’apport de la recherche (French activity) | Animation : Bruno Poellhuber (Université de Montréal) | Conrod’s (2F.4) | Documentation : Slideshow
    See description
    ICT is increasingly becoming part of college pedagogical practices and so is the interest in active learning pedagogy. However, IT labs and traditional classrooms currently used in colleges are unsuitable for collaborative work using ICT. Colleges are increasingly providing specialized classrooms that are equipped with a rich technological environment that are suitable for collaborative work: active learning classrooms. Faced with high costs and small budgets, this activity will present the essential functions of such classrooms, keeping in mind the main users: students and teachers. With these features as the starting point, we will look at different ways to organize active learning classrooms depending on the budget available.

    Different plans will be shared and participants will learn what are the essential criteria for creating such classrooms.

  1. Mobile programs: Talking about pedagogical support? / Programmes mobiles : et si on parlait d’accompagnement pédagogique? (French activity)Animation : Huguette Dupont (Granby) and Jean-Luc Trussart (Lanaudière – L’Assomption) | Conrod’s (2F.4) | Documentation : Slideshow
    See description
    With regard to discussions undertaken this year on the implementation of mobile programs and technologies, many pedagogical issues were raised. What constitutes pedagogical support in strategies for teaching, evaluation and learning to support the successful integration of mobile technologies that go beyond the functional use of these devices? The framework of the workshop is based on support in the context of mobile programs, but the themes addressed are also relevant in other less structured contexts that involve the use of mobile technologies in class: taking digital notes, active learning strategies, group work activities, teaching and the evaluation of learning in the omnipresence of technology.

    This workshop seeks to shed light on the issues, probems and pedagogical development needs uncovered in our colleges, by sharing knowledge, lived experiences and resources and to discuss solutions, approaches to be prioritized and training activities to help support teachers.

    The activity will begin with a short presentation of facts, concepts and resources related to supporting teachers in the pedagogical integration of mobile technologies. The heart of the workshop will be based on a series of case studies that identify a need for support and possible solutions. We will conclude the workshop with a reflection on future actions: how to engage teachers in professional development and how to use our network’s resources to support teachers in our local colleges. Come and participate in the shared construction of pedagogical practices around a current issue in a relaxed and informal climate!

  2. Scenarios for gamification, web stories narrations: so far, so close / Scénarios de ludification, narrations web transmédia : si loin, si proche (French activity) | Animation : Jean Desjardins (Collégial International Sainte-Anne) | Room 3H.10 | Documentation : Slideshow 
    See description
    Three years ago, at Collège Sainte-Anne, the first colleagues to use gamification in their courses were two math teachers who wanted to revamp learning strategies in their discipline, and by narrating a science fiction story, gave students a sense of purpose. Profweb wrote an article on us last fall, so we thought that the moment had come for us to share with you our skills in the art of pedagogical staging (development of the theme, challenge, game dynamics, etc.) and a few device designs that we built for courses both in class and remote learning!
  3. UnlockingResearch, Moodle and more : Mastering research skills with the use of online tools | Animation : Nicole Haché (Champlain – St-Lambert) | Room 3F.43 | Documentation : Slideshow
    See description
    For many years, the librarians at Champlain College – St-Lambert have partnered with the Humanities department to offer required “Introduction to Library Research” and “Introduction to Citation/Plagiarism” sessions to first semester students as part of the 101 course. “Unlocking Research” was created as a complementary online tool students could refer to when needed.  This online tool covers Skill 1 of the ICT Profile for College Students from topic development to the creation of their bibliographies.  

    In addition to Unlocking Research, the last few years have brought the librarians to rethink the delivery of the Humanities sessions.  From librarian led PowerPoint presentations, we have moved to self-paced Moodle based assignments with thoughts to the future creation of a “Flipped” version.

    Discussed during this session will be the development of Unlocking Research and the current and possible future delivery of information literacy sessions at Champlain St-Lambert.

During this workshop, I will present this internet website, which is dedicated to improving French, and will invite participants to share their experiences – on this site or elsewhere. As the site has more than 2000 resources, I will share my favorites. Your participation will be requested by, for example, answering questions from quizzes.

2. Distance learning feedback: content, impact and technology / La rétroaction en formation à distance : contenu, impact et technologie (French activity)Animation : Stéphanie Facchin (Cégep à distance) | Conrod’s (2F.4) | Documentation : Slideshow

See description

Despite the emergence of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), written feedback on assignments submitted by learners remains the most common form, as much for distance as for in-class learning. Besides providing grades, the challenge is also to support students into improving their learning.
This workshop aims to (1) present the results of an explanatory study the goal of which was to analyze the content of feedback and to determine the impact they had on grades, and (2) share practices used by teachers to provide technological feedback (audio or video). Participants will be invited to share and discuss their practices as well the possibilities offered by ICT for this subject.

3. Cite It! A Tutorial on How to Cite Your Sources Correctly Animation : Paulette Cake (CCDMD) | Room 3F.43 | Documentation Slideshow

An agreement with Place Alexis-Nihon’s parking staff was not possible, since parkings spots are limited in that area. Here’s what we suggest:

  • Try and park at Place Alexis-Nihon or the Montreal Forum. If those are full, this map offers other options
  • You can also try to find a parking spot on the streets surrounding Dawson College.
  • For the streets containing parking meters, it is possible to you to feed this one remotely by using the P$ Mobile Service application (Apple and Android).
  • In fact, the best option would be to take the metro to Dawson… Leave your car to your hotel or at a metro station near Dawson. Don’t forget, there is a cocktail on Thursday ! 🙂
