  • Relations difficiles à conceptualiser (Emmanuel Nadeau, @nadeau_emmanuel)

    J’ai contribué au “Ontario Extend Learner Challenge Bank” en apportant le défi: “Voir la façon dont tous les penseurs que nous explorons en classe s’agencent les uns par rapport aux autres ainsi qu’avec la question d’inégalités” et la solution qui y est attachée.  

  • Faculty Challenge: Unable to attend PD session in-person (Mel Young, @melyoung00)

    Originally I did the empathy map with students, but I found it more useful to complete the empathy map using my other ‘clients’ – faculty. They want to learn more but just don’t have time during the academic year to attend all of the PD sessions in-person that they’d like to. They still want to… Read more »

  • Ontario Extend Module 2: Activity 3: Define Your Learner Challenge: Group Work (Lynn Chartrand, @lynn_chartrand)

    My students often have a dislike for group work. Just the mention of group work receives a lukewarm reception. After listening to the variety of reasons as to why students dislike group work, I have created a group contract which I will be posting as a Google Doc. My hope is that this document, will… Read more »

  • Learner Challenge (Pamela Koski Bryant, @BryantKoski)

    I have been putting students in groups. I give each group a specific scenario. They have to come up with the best way to monitor the specific air quality scenario. They then teach the rest of the class the air monitoring program they have designed using the technology appropriate for that scenario. Interesting to see… Read more »

  • Learner Challenge (Sidney, @data_professor)

    In my first data analytics class, I used one of my favourite examples of analytics and statistics on the field and in the management office, the movie Moneyball. The premise is that using statistics and predictive analytics, player performance can be improved, sometimes in a more effective way than going on instinct alone. I like the… Read more »

  • Leveraging Use of Google Suite (Mel Young, @melyoung00)

    I have had students that are resistant to group work. At first, I just thought that they need to get over it — but after doing the empathy map and finding out exactly what it was about group work that students didn’t like I found out that it went far beyond just “I don’t like… Read more »

  • Tutor Payroll Training (Irene Stewart, @IrenequStewart)

    I added a section called Tutor Payroll Training. I have been thinking about how to make information accessible whenever tutors needed it as well as how to present the steps to payroll in a way that helps with onboarding (a concept in games where beginners are introduced to the game mechanics). I also got a… Read more »

  • Using WhatsApp to improve group work (Danny Smith, @ProfessorDannyS)

    Check out my post on Padlet re using WhatsApp to improve group work.  Some students have challenges communicating in groups, so I have started to use request that they make Whatsapp groups at the start of the semester.  This way I can check in on what they are discussing and to see who is a… Read more »

  • Challenge – code breaking in online learning (Helen DeWaard, @hj_dewaard)

    My post on the padlet: Students coming into the online learning space – those who are there for the first time are overwhelmed with what to do and when; those who come with previous experiences are relying on past practice to figure it out which is often not helpful. Those with some digital fluencies can… Read more »
