TEACHING ACTIVITY

I like using the interactive tools in Zoom to have students compare the quality of translations using the same base text in different platforms: Reverse, DeepL, and Google Translate.

 

TEACHING MOMENT

I am happy when students peruse a list of translation tools and resources and I hear a student say: ‘Yes! I can definitely use this!

 

TEACHING STRATEGY

I love combining a lecture-style course with a French workbook resource and translating live with the students as we go. I eases their anxiety as they practice their oral interactions with myself & each other.

Cult of Pedagogy

What the heck is pedagogy anyway? It’s a fancy word for the study of teaching. I think it’s a word we should use more. And one more thing: About the word “Cult.” It’s kind of a joke. This isn’t actually a cult. The phrase is a play on the phrase Cult of Personality, which was a thing long before Living Colour released this song (a month after I graduated high school). Anyway, because I’ve always been pretty obsessed with education, I thought it would be a good name for a gathering of people who share that obsession.

TEACHING MOMENTS

My favourite teaching moment is when I help students get a stage placement that leads to a job after graduation. The students see that all the work they put in to getting their diploma was fruitful.  Often, the students I teach have a hard, defensive shell because of a rigid education experience that didn’t meet
their needs. When a student says to me that I helped them have a positive experience, I am happy.

And Robots. We build robots.  How cool is that?!?

Teaching Strategy

I like incorporating games into the student learning activities, both digital and not. I use
digital platforms like Kahoot, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune. I use crossword puzzles to
learn vocabulary, and often ask the students to contribute the words. The students like having
fun with the learning.

 

Teaching Strategy

I keep the classroom as stress-free and relaxed as possible while they reflect on themselves. I use
humour and realism in the practical lab. I act as the patient and add realistic elements from my
experience that keep them on their toes. I often ask students to suggest scenarios for learning situations
and they enjoy adding funny elements. It is a great way for them to practice their communication and
relational skills!

 

Teaching Activity

I often add parts to my lessons that gets them to take a break and make them aware that their needs
are important. I do 5-minute exercise breaks with an 80’s music vibe from Richard Simmons to
recenter their minds. The student laugh and participate, and it makes for a fun moment!

UDL and the Learning Brain

In the past decade, there have been unprecedented ways to examine the living brain and to better understand what happens during learning. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) was nspired by such advances in cognitive neuroscience research and offers a framework that integrates what we know about the learning brain to inform the design of environments that support all learners.

Voc Talk café by Après-cours

The Voc Talk Café is a place where you are invited to chat  live about teaching a trade in today’s world.  Originally launched in November 2021, the Voc Talk Café is now brought to you, on Zoom, by VT.PROCEDE and RÉCIT VT in collaboration with les Après-cours. The meetings are a safe space to get information and discuss issues, concerns and successes in the vocational training community.

Every second Monday at 3:00 PM, the session is focused on a specific trade sector but remains open to all vocational educators. The first 15 minutes are dedicated to information and the next 45 minutes to discussion and exploration.

To join, on the day and time of the meeting, visit the Après-cours site and click the big red button here to be admitted in the virtual room.

VT Literacy Project

Some learners (adults and young people under 18) who undertake vocational training in English-language School Boards in Quebec can experience difficulties in reading, writing and mathematics in the language of instruction (English) and sometimes with the second language (French).

This annual project aims to identify learners with learning difficulties (learner profile) and to offer them an individualized plan.
