Que dit la littérature scientifique sur l’intégration des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) pour la réussite d’élèves en difficultés d’apprentissage et d’adaptation ? (Anatole Emate, PhD Candidate)

Une tendance mondiale cherche à promouvoir l’accès à l’éducation et la réussite pour tous les élèves (Rose, 2002). Par ailleurs, les recherches sur l’intégration des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) dans les écoles ont été menées en vue de recueillir des données sur divers aspects de l’accès aux TIC dans les écoles, et la mise à jour des programmes dans les écoles canadiennes en attestent la place accordée au TIC. Cependant, cette présence des TIC dans les écoles fait l’objet de polémique. D’un côté, il y a ceux qui sont en faveur des TIC et d’autres, contre l’intégration des TIC dans les écoles. Notre présentation sera bâtie autour de cette argumentation.

Deconstructing Psychotherapy (Jesse Henneberry, PhD Candidate)

I wish to give a presentation on the practice of deconstructing psychotherapy. I hope to highlight the benefits to both clients and therapists when therapists can hold a space to deconstruct their professional role. This however may prove difficult in practice, as the therapist is required to participate in the act of therapy while simultaneously deconstructing this same act. While challenging, I believe deconstructing our conventional story of what a therapist is, and how this story gets told, highlights an important political element of psychotherapy that is often overlooked.

Using UDL to teach French Immersion in an elementary classroom (Julie Sullivan, MEd Student)

A presentation that offers a way to provide second language instruction to LD learners in a French immersion classroom. The presentation will include some research on the findings for LD inclusion as well as a methodology for incorporating these learners in the classroom. Universal Design for learning is a framework that is designed to accommodate special learners into the design of the lesson plan instead of designing a lesson and then adding the accommodations at the end. It is an exciting approach that could potentially change the way that we look at LD accommodations. The framework could also be used support ELL students in both the English and French streams.

Comment soutenir l’apprentissage de la rédaction de la synthèse aux études supérieures?

Les tâches relevant du processus de synthèse sont courantes aux études supérieures; la réalisation de celles-ci est cependant loin d’être simple pour de nombreux étudiants, principalement parce qu’ils n’ont pas reçu d’enseignement explicite à cet effet. Anderson et Krathwohl (2001), en s’appuyant sur les plus récentes avancées en sciences cognitives, ont révisé la taxonomie de Bloom (Bloom, Engelhart, Furst, Hill et Krathwohl, 1969) et ont opté pour le terme création en lieu et place de synthèse; ils l’ont en outre promue au rang le plus élevé de la hiérarchie. En se fondant sur les trois processus cognitifs inhérents à la création, soit générer, planifier et produire, le séminaire exposera les étapes de réalisation d’une synthèse. Il proposera également quelques stratégies d’accompagnement de l’étudiant favorisant le développement de ses compétences dans ce domaine.
