Feasibility survey for a shared web portal for Digital Education Resources (DER) research and Open Education Resources depot (OER) (Bilingual activity: Étude de faisabilité pour un portail mutualisé pour la recherche de ressources éducatives numériques [REN] et le dépôt de ressources éducatives libres [REL]) | Speaker: Pascale Blanc (Vitrine technologie-éducation), Isabelle Laplante (Centre de documentation collégiale [CDC]), Cathie Dugas (Centre collégial de développement de matériel didactique [CCDMD]) | Room 3G.2 | Documentation: Presentation

View description

The challenge linked with digital resources and their use is not new in the world of education. Initiatives to create directories cataloguing ‘Teaching and Learning Resources’ emerged in the late 1990s. We are currently seeing a renewed interest in this and institutional and governmental efforts converging to establish national platforms for digital education resources as demonstrated by some of the measures in the Digital Action Plan for Education and Higher Education of the MÉES. At the international level, this is linked to numerous factors of which we can highlight the increasing digitalization of education, the development of distance learning and hybrid training as well as the increasing number of digital education resources and autonomous learning situations.

The objective of this activity is to present the ‘Feasibility survey for a shared web portal for Digital Education Resources (DER) and Open Education Resources (OER) depot’ for which those responsible for this survey, le Centre collégial de développement de matériel didactique (CCDMD), the Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) and the Vitrine technologie-éducation (VTÉ)  have an agreement in principle with the MÉES. This presentation will finish with an exchange to gather comments and suggestions on planned actions in the development of the project.


Accessible or inclusive courses? (French Activity: Cours accessibles ou inclusifs ?) | Speaker: Roch Ducharme (Centre de recherche pour l’inclusion des personnes en situation de handicap [CRISPESH]) | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: Présentation Principes primaire – cours accessible et inclusif

View description

Accessibility and pedagogical inclusion: an ulterior motive, a daunting task, or rather, an integral part of the plan? We will explore a few simple concepts and principles on access and techno-pedagogical inclusion. These best practices will help many students at risk or with disabilities by reducing common learning barriers, such as access to reading.


Digital manufacturing workshops – after the lab… (Bilingual activity: Les ateliers de fabrication numérique – après le laboratoire…)  | Speaker: Jean-Pierre Dufresne (Vitrine technologie-éducation) | Room: 3H.2 | Documentation: link mindmeister; link atelier de fabrication numérique

View description

The Vitrine technologie education recently presented the Digital Manufacturing Workshop lab. During the lab, more than a dozen specialists listened to us on different aspects of implementing a Digital Manufacturing Workshop. In this presentation, you will be invited to revisit the subject and exchange on what you would have liked to learn that was not addressed, or to reflect on ways to share what a digital workshop has to offer.

Curation and collective annotation to develop 21st century skills (French Activity: La curation et l’annotation collective pour développer les compétences du 21e siècle) | Speaker: Patti Kingsmill (Vanier) | Room 3G.2 | Documentation: presentation, Ressources use during the activity

View description

Curation means gathering digital content, organizing it, summarizing it and sharing its most relevant elements on a cloud platform. Collective annotation allows users to comment on information in a collaborative environment. Both approaches can help students to consolidate their research, communication and collaboration skills, sharpen their critical thinking and develop metaliteracy. Discussion on these two approaches and their contribution to the development of skills for the 21st century: benefits and impacts of main platforms used.


Supporting teachers in a process of developing inclusive practices (French Activity: Accompagner les profs dans un processus de développement des pratiques inclusives) | Speaker: Lorraine Ouellette (Victoriaville) et Andréanne Turgeon (Profweb) | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: Slideshow.

View description

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach that is becoming increasingly recognized in colleges. This workshop aims at presenting a process that supports teachers in the implementation of inclusive practices by bringing together pedagogical and technological components. Come and discover how the UDL community of practice from CÉGEP de Victoriaville was able to develop a process that supports teachers in the implementation of inclusive practices. You will also discover an approach that was presented to a teachers’ community of practice at CÉGEP Limoilou, that aims at generating reflection on selecting the right digital tools.

Dashboards based on Learning Analytics: what are the possibilities and challenges for trainers and trainees? (French Activity: Les tableaux de bord fondés sur les learning analytics : quelles possibilités et quels enjeux pour les formateurs et les apprenants ?) | Speaker: Bruno Poellhuber (Université de Montréal), Normand Roy (Université de Montréal) | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: presentation

View description

While we are still preoccupied with retention and success rates in distance learning, the use of traces left in digital learning environments (e.g. Moodle) could allow the measurement of behavioral development (Poellhuber et al., 2019) and cognitive commitment, while allowing the development of performing predictive algorithms. Our project aims at supporting commitment, retention and student success by developing and iteratively implementing Dashboards that progressively improve with reinforcement learning algorithms. This project aims also to support students’ self-regulation for MOOC and distance learning, but also to support trainers’ action. Some pilot projects have enabled the validation of the approach, but problems of interpretation and adoption still remain with teachers. The opportunities and challenges of dashboards in teaching will be discussed among participants.


Reacts – A collaborative platform in hyperpresence (Bilingual activity: Reacts – Une plateforme de visioconférence en hyperprésence) | Speaker: Jean-Pierre Dufresne (Vitrine technologie-éducation), Yanick Beaulieu (Reacts), David Bouchard (Reacts), Aldous Vijh (Reacts) | Room 5B.13 | Documentation: Using Reacts in Education; Virtual tour of the biodome with Reacts (article and video [in french]); Les brebis du Biscornu : visite virtuelle avec Reacts [in french]

View description

Presentation of the Reacts platform (Remote Education, Augmented Communication, Training and Supervision) which is a secure digital collaboration platform created by a Quebec enterprise, Technologies innovatrices d’imagerie Inc. (TII), which offers many capabilities that respond to many needs for collaboration and distance learning. Even though it was originally developed for health professionals, Reacts can easily find its way in the toolbox of any teacher who wishes to go beyond their classroom’s limits. Reacts’ integrated new interactive tools, including augmented reality, simultaneous multiple video streams and overlay of interactive multimedia content, will allow teachers to redefine their use of visual aids.

A self-assessment tool to support teachers in mastering informational and digital skills for their students (French Activity: Un outil d’auto diagnostic pour soutenir les enseignants dans la maîtrise des compétences informationnelles et numériques des étudiants) | Speaker: Marie-Josée Tondreau (Abitibi-Témiscamingue), Nathalie Cadrin (Drummondville), Marie Jolicoeur (Lévis-Lauzon), Charles Lambert (Montmorency), Anne-Frédérique Champoux (REBICQ), Nicole Perreault (REPTIC) | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: Compilation Appeal to all – Teachers’ IS and NS (in french), Access to teams’ web pages, Link to descriptive datasheets of ICT Profile Skills (in English)

View description


How can we lead teachers to reflect on their own informational and digital skills in order to ensure that students master these same skills? If so, how can we help teachers identify their needs for training? How can we encourage them to meet their needs for training?


The first step selected by Anne-Frédérique, Charles, Marie, Marie-Josée, Nathalie and Nicole is a self-assessment tool which enables teachers to identify their level of informational and digital skills (scenarios or multiple choice questions). Each teacher receives immediate feedback along with a variety of resources to improve their skills. All questions are related to the skills from the ICT Profile for Students.

This diagnostic tool is a formative evaluation that promotes reflection, which then brings teachers to identify improvement and development paths for these skills.


The activity will be split in three segments, in teams of six people. Skills from the ICT Profile will be allocated depending on the number of teams. Each team will work together in roundtables to:

  1. Develop questions and answers according to the skill assigned to them;
  2. Move to another team’s roundtable to comment and improve on the questions and answers developed by the other team, for a different skill.
  3. Bring together all teams in one large group and comment on the questions that were developed, and exchange ideas on how to promote and use this bank of questions in colleges.

All questions will be available in a text document so that each ITREP can adapt them depending on the resources and software applications offered in their institution.

Prior to the activity

Participants are asked, when possible, to compile their questions prior to the activity.

ITREP Network: An assessment focused on the future (French Activity: Réseau REPTIC : un bilan tourné vers le futur) | Speaker: Nicole Perreault (Réseau REPTIC) | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: Document used during the activity.

View description

The ICT network for respondents (ITREP Network) has brought together, facilitated and supported pedagogical counsellors responsible for the integration of pedagogical technology in colleges since February 2002, and I have been in charge of animating it since November 2014.

Since then, we have developed an understanding and a collective library of which we are very proud. Our productions have had a concrete impact for teachers, students and other intervenors or services in our colleges (student success, student services, Cont. Ed, distance learning, etc.). We even saw their impact in the Digital Action Plan for Educational and Higher Education!

Our ITREP Network is a professional community of practice composed of generous and dynamic people who know very well that investing time and sharing is beneficial to everyone. As one member once said, ‘it’s a community where we can leave aside competition and think collectively!’.

This activity is a special moment to look back at the work and actions done, and also to look to the future, in terms of our working tools and strategies that ensure communication and sharing that address the needs and constraints of all. The activity will also be an opportunity to target our expectations for succession planning for the animation of the Network.

Networked Teaching and Learning: A recipe for meaningful, interactive, learning (English Activity)| Speaker: Gabriel Flacks (linkr Education/Champlain, Saint-Lambert) | Room 5B.13 | Documentation: Presentation, linkr

View description

Linkr is a global educational network that has been brought into dozens of CEGEP classes from a variety of disciplines. Teachers have registered and invited students to linkr to: increase student engagement; enhance classwork and assessments; teach digital literacy skills; teach reading, writing and language skills; and for a variety of other goals. As part of the linkr network, students are able to safely and authentically interact across linguistic communities and across institutions. Online courses at Universities have used linkr to make courses meaningful while traditional university courses have used linkr to make larger courses personalized and meaningful. This presentation/workshop will provide attendees a brief tour of key linkr functionality and an opportunity to explore the platform with a guide. Come discover why linkr has already had teachers from over 15 CEGEPs benefit from its impact on their courses!

Integrating digital technology (DT) in the evaluation of learning: substitution or transformation of practices? (French Activity: Intégrer les technologies numériques [TN] à l’évaluation des apprentissages : substitution ou transformation des pratiques ?) | Speaker: Julie Lyne Leroux (Université de Sherbrooke) | Room 3H.2 | Documentation: Diaporama, fiches pratiques pour les équipes

View description

Digital technology (DT) makes the evaluation of distance learning possible by offering a series of platform, ICT and web 2.0 tools. While some teachers use DT to mimic existing practices, others restructure and reorganize the practices of evaluating distance learning. Using research results, the workshop (roundtable) will provide practical situations and will present options for teachers from different programs.


Successful use of Office 365 in colleges: a thrilling Pecha Kucha! (French Activity: Les utilisations réussies d’Office 365 dans les collèges : un Pecha Kucha enivrant !) | Speaker: Manon Lessard (Jonquière), Myriam Arsenault (Valleyfield)  | Room: 3C.1 | Documentation: presentation

View description

The objective of this Pecha Kucha* activity is to present, in quick succession, successful uses of the Office 365 Suite in our CEGEPs. Previously-identified ITREPs will present its use in less than six minutes, supported by a few punchy slides. The presentations will be grouped in blocks according to the application being presented. A brief question period will follow each block.

*Pecha Kucha is a format that synchronizes an oral presentation with a quick succession of slides, preferably without animation. Each presentation lasts less than six minutes. This format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced and is respectful of time! (inspired from Wikipedia)

Development, implementation and follow up of an integration plan for ICT: a roundtable that keeps on turning! (French Activity: Élaboration, mise en œuvre et suivi d’un plan d’intégration des TIC : une table qui va tourner… rondement !) | Speaker: Jocelyne Dupont (Shawinigan), Nicole Perreault (Réseau REPTIC)  | Room 3C.1 | Documentation: Access to teams’ web page, ICT plan in colleges (April 2019 census) – in French, Presentation – in French

View description


In 2006, our colleague Huguette Dupont wrote, in a document entitled Modèle des déterminants d’une intégration pédagogique concertée et réussie des TIC tels qu’ils entrent en jeu au Cégep de Granby:

  • The college network is currently restless in terms of research, projects and experiments related to the integration of ICT, locally in institutions, but also at the national level.’

If the college network was restless in 2006, the pot is boiling now!

  • The Digital Action Plan for Education and Higher Education from the MÉES suggests a variety of actions aiming at, among other things, supporting the development of digital skills for students and exploiting digital technology as a vehicle for added value in teaching and learning practices.
  • Ministerial specifications for programs of study are increasingly including skills linked to the mastering of informational and digital skills for students.
  • Digital technology offers pedagogical approaches that seem to have an increasingly meaningful impact on student success.
  • Academic institutions cannot ignore the importance of technology. Its role in supporting teachers is essential.

A successful integration of digital technology in academic institutions cannot be completed without the implementation of a collaborative ICT integration plan which includes rolls, objectives, actions, a schedule, etc. Some colleges have already completed it, some others have started while others are still reflecting on it. One thing is for sure, this is not a one-man show.

Description of the activity

This roundtable on the development and implementation of an ICT integration plan, invites ITREPs who don’t have an ICT plan in their college yet, and those who have one, to share their questionings, their good (and not so good) moves, and their tools. It will be an opportunity to find answers to questions such as:

  • What is the ideal process for developing an ICT integration plan?
  • Whose business should it be to develop and implement an ICT plan?
  • What are the objectives of an ICT committee? Who should be a member of this committee? What is the role of each member?
  • How can an ICT committee gain access to the concerns of different services in a CEGEP?
  • How to ensure a follow-up on planned actions?
  • What are the winning conditions for attaining the objectives and what are some not-so-good moves from other CÉGEPs?
  • What are the College’s foundational documents that can be used in developing an ICT integration plan and how to use them?
  • What are the available resources that can support this process?
  • Do we have tools that can be shared? Project management, grids (all sorts)
  • Etc.

Prior to the activity

Participants are invited to suggest topics or questions before the beginning of the activity, through this link. Any topic or question related to an ICT integration plan is more than welcome!

View description

With the arrival of new autonomous, immersive, virtual-reality headsets (IVR) (Oculus Go, Lenovo, Mirage Solo), it is now easier to imagine immersive virtual-reality scenarios that can be used in classrooms. We will start by briefly presenting some reviews of potential effects of IVR, followed by a presentation of the virtual reality living lab from the Centre de pédagogie Universitaire de l’Université de Montréal and other projects that are being developed in psychoeducation, education and biology. Several of these projects draw on the development of IVR material with 360 cameras. We will present you with simulations that are adapted specifically to college-level science, such as Biology and Chemistry (with Labster), and the proposed Science Program research project. Finally, you will be able to experience IVR scenarios and exchange with the rest of the team.

The ITREP meeting will be held from April 3rd at 1:00 p.m. to April 5th at noon at Dawson College, located at 3040, Sherbrooke West street in Montreal, just a step away from the Atwater metro station and from the Place Alexis-Nihon.

For 3 days, the main room of the meeting is room 3C.1: we can easily access it from the Atwater metro station, or by the college entrance located on de Maisonneuve Boulevard.


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 ! 🙂
