The CDC website hosts the complete Pédagogie collégiale.
The Thematic files maintain and enrich the college network’s documentary heritage. To achieve this goal, the CDC has put many documents online including all the proceedings of AQPC seminars and the integral texts of articles in the journal Pédagogie collégiale the year following their publication.
One of the advantages of this is the CDC’s indexing of articles which enables a keyword search. Thus, a search by theme, title, author or keyword facilitates the selection of relevant articles through the display of a detailed record.Of course, the CDC index includes thousands of other articles and books, in fact almost 35,000 documents of interest for those who work in the college network.

Your Turn to Expand the Frontiers of Knowledge
For the last 25 years, the journal Pédagogie collégiale has broadcast research results within the college network as well as the teaching practices most likely to enhance teachers’ awareness. Thanks to its quarterly distribution of 3000 copies, it promotes the development of an academic culture within the entire college network and the transfer of educational innovations from one college to another. Readers benefit from the insight provided by the work of colleagues in other networks of higher education including that of Quebec’s universities.
All teachers in colleges and universities are invited to contribute to this exchange by publishing the results of their work and by sharing the results of their academic endeavours. Publication standards and practices for writing articles or stories of teaching practices are already available online in English or in French.
The editorial board of the journal receives and analyzes all submissions, whether in English or in French. An English editorial committee has been established to facilitate the evaluation of English articles. In this case, the articles accepted for publication are published in French in the print journal and appear in both French and in English on the website of the AQPC.
The editorial board is preparing a file for its summer issue on the diversification of the student population, particularly on the integration of college students with disabilities or those who are struggling with mental health problems. The pages of the magazine are open to you to enrich.
