How to use big data on students to improve teaching? (French activity : Comment utiliser les mégadonnées des étudiants pour améliorer l’enseignement) | Speaker: Rafael Scapin (Dawson) and Pascale Blanc (Vitrine technologie-éducation) |Room 3F.43 | Documentation: Diaporama Comment utiliser les mégadonnées des étudiants pour améliorer l’enseignement
View description

The analysis of learning uses digital traces left by distance-education students to improve teaching and learning as well as the environment in which they take place. This workshop will introduce ways to use this information in order to improve your teaching skills.


Towards a digital and personal learning environment  (French activity : Vers un environnement d’apprentissage numérique et personnel)  | Speaker: Hamid Nach (Université du Québec à Rimouski, campus de Lévis) | Room 5B.16| Documentation: Diaporama Vers un environnement d’apprentissage numérique et personnel

View description

Teaching at the university and college level is changing with the omnipresence of digital technology and the evolution of learning reflexes in our students. The convergence of social networks, mobile tools and cloud computing allows students to access online resources, powerful web-based user-friendly tools, and to collaborate with their peers and get involved in communities. Therefore it has become necessary to re-evaluate the role held by Learning Management Systems (LMS), seen as closed and unwilling to give students an open and constant access to the resources to which they are accustomed.

The model of Personal Learning Environments presents itself as a natural evolution of the classic model in institutional environments. It focuses on students and makes easy the interaction with resources and peers in a formal or informal framework.

This is the mindset of this presentation. Its objective is to present the characteristics of personal learning environments, its paradigm and its role in university and college teaching.

View description

How are techno-pedagogical requests processed in your institution? Is there a formal process in place? Do teachers come to your office spontaneously?

And what about development  projects? Do you have a defined call-for-proposals process? What are the criteria for selecting projects?

This roundtable will be an opportunity to share and exchange on our colleges’ respective practices.

  Implementing Office 365 in colleges (French activity : Le déploiement d’Office 365 dans les collèges – table ronde) | Speakers: Caroline Villeneuve and Ryan Moon (Profweb) | Room 5B.16 | Documentation : Profweb article : Deploying Office 365 Across Colleges.

View description

The Office 365 environment is undoubtedly gaining ground in your college. According to the ITREPs workplan for colleges, a majority of colleges are now offering this online collaborative platform.

We requested the collaboration of eight ICT reps in anglophone and francophone colleges in order to document the implementation of the Microsoft Office 365 environment. Some colleges are just beginning the implementation while others are reporting their observations after one or more years of experimentation.

Several collaborators will be present and will suggest examples of collaborative tools from the Office 365 suite and a summary of the exchanges will be available after the activity

Microsoft Teams is Office 365’s newborn. This brand-new application is a collaborative platform that integrates all the tools needed for efficient teamwork. Whether for supporting departments, for working in administrative teams or for students’ projects, Teams has become a very interesting collaborative tool to explore, both locally and remotely. I have used it in various contexts and each time it was a success. When you come out of this workshop, you will have a good idea of its potential and you will want to explore it according to your needs.

Put on your seatbelt, the guided tour is about to begin!

The ITREP meeting is the best place to test the Guide for an educational activity integrating ICT. This workshop is a simulation exercise.

You will be part of a work team that is invited to support a teacher requesting guidance for implementing an educational activity integrating ICT. And when the teacher explains her activity, you can help her to clarify her objectives, to plan the activity and, finally, to plan for reporting the results of the activity.

Your on-site experience will assist in the validation of: the organization and presentation of the Guide, the precision, the conciseness, the vocabulary, and the ergonomics of the clickable model as well as the checklist. Participants will have the opportunity to test the Guide, to provide comments for its improvement so that it becomes a valuable tool for you as a techno-pedagogical counsellor.

  Workshop module setup made easy | Speaker:Orzu Kamolova (Universté de Montréal) | Room 5B.13 | Documentation : (to come)

View description

Moodle Workshop activity is the best powerful peer assessment activity. The students participating in the workshop activity submit their own assigned work and then given the task to assess the other students work based on the teacher’s specifications. It is primarily a student focused activity. But the workshop activity has its own big learning curve and it may be pretty difficult to use the workshop activity first time.

Development team of Université de Montréal, in Québec, figured out the steep learning curve for the workshop activity in Moodle and came up with a new Assessment Workshop activity. Similar to the Moodle core workshop activity, the new Assessment Workshop activity is for both self-assessment and peer-assessment pedagogical approaches made easy for the teacher to configure and make it available to students


A new digital skills repository: the GRIIPTIC proposal and mandate from the Ministry  (French activity : Un nouveau référentiel de compétences numériques: la proposition du GRIIPTIC dans le cadre du mandat confié par le MÉES)  | Speakers: Bruno Poellhuber, Thierry Karsenti, Florent Michelot (Université de Montréal, Faculté des sciences de l’éducation)  | Room 5B.16 | Documentation : (to come)

View description

In view of the development of Québec’s digital strategy and digital action plan in higher education, and faced with the need to update some requirements, such as Skill 8 from the Québec Education Program, the Ministry of Education and the MÉES gave Thierry Karsenti, Bruno Poellhuber and their research team (GRIIPTIC) the mandate to develop a digital skills repository for teachers and students, from elementary school to university.

A systematic work of review and analysis of some 140 repositories and documents was undertaken. A lexical analysis of these documents was carried out. Then, the content of each repository was analyzed. These reports will be presented, as the first repository proposal was, for validation.

The presentation will be followed by a survey and a consultation with ITREPs.

View description

Clearly, time spent designing a program, a course or a workshop strategy is time well invested. Whether it is to formulate indicators of expected development levels or to plan coherent activities on moving from one level to another, learning involving sustainable change is our goal.

Examples of activities promoting active learning, either in class or in field work, on site or virtual, will be presented. A discussion will take place on opportunities for learners to transform their ways of thinking and acting, thanks to their interpretation of the experiences to which they are exposed (Ambrose, Bridges, DiPietro, Lovett and Norman, 2010). Indicators of success will also be shared.

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 ! 🙂
