The 2017 AQPC Symposium, at the Dawn of Celebrating 50 Years of the College Network

This text was initially published by Profweb under a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 International licence, before Eductive was launched.

After 49 years have gone by, the College Network is about to begin its 50th year. The AQPC Symposium will be the first grand event of this anniversary, and once again it will bear witness to the vitality and the riches of the pedagogical culture in the Quebec College Network. In total, 128 presentations spread over 3 days and close to 1500 participants expected. You should be part of these numbers!

Our Legacy, Starting a New Collegial Cycle at the AQPC

One of the great thinkers at the origins of the College Network, Guy Rocher, will open the symposium with his speech “How to Explain the Surprising Success of the Quebec College Network and What Should Come Next? (Comment s’expliquer l’étonnante réussite du réseau collégial québécois et quelle devra être la suite?) In closing, the founder of the Institut du Nouveau Monde, Michel Venne, past-director in the college network Hélène Allaire, and student-activist Andréanne St-Gelais, will answer the question, “What Would a Parent 2.0 Report Say?” (Que dirait un rapport Parent 2.0 ?) before the audience. This is how, in a perspective towards the future, that the organizers of the symposium have developed the theme of the symposium: Our Legacy.

The presentation of Julia Christensen Hughes, Dean of the College of Business and Economics at Guelph University, “Teaching and Learning in a Time of Disruption,” as well as that of Ollivier Dyens, first Executive Vice-principal at McGill University “Disrupting Education in the 21st Century: Rethinking Human Beings with Education by Machines” (Bouleverser l’éducation au 21e siècle: repenser l’humain par l’éducation des machines), proposing fundamental reflection on education and teaching. That of Patrick Pelletier, Teacher at TÉLUQ “Hybrid Learning in Higher Education: from Concept to Practice” (L’apprentissage hybride en enseignement supérieur : du concept à la pratique),as well as that of Ann-Louise Davidson, Teacher at Concordia University, “Developing Competencies with Problem Sets” (Développer des compétences à partir des situations problems)approach pedagogical methods useful right away in higher education.

This symposium brings attention particularly to the situation of First Nations students. On this subject, we will hear from Lise Bastien, General Director of the First Nations Education Council, in her speech “First Nations Students within the College Network” (Les étudiants des Premières Nations au sein du réseau collégial) which will open the Rendez-vous with the First Nations. In addition, throughout the symposium, we will have access to at least one presentation regarding the services for First Nations students in every time slot.
