New Qualifying Master's Degrees in Teaching
In a context where, more than ever, the shortage of teachers is a major issue, theTELUQ University and theUniversity of Quebec in Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) are joining forces to offer two master's degrees in teaching in Quebec this fall. The master's degree in preschool and elementary education, offered by Université TÉLUQ in association with UQAT, and the master's degree in secondary education, concentrations in mathematics and French, offered by UQAT in association with Université TÉLUQ, are intended for individuals who have a bachelor's degree and an active employment relationship with a school service center, but who do not have their teaching certificate in Quebec
These programs, which were developed in close association with practice settings, including the Centre de services scolaires Marguerite-Bourgeoys de Montréal and the Groupe régional d'acteurs pour la valorisation des enseignants de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue (GRAVE), which includes the centers de services scolaires de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et du Nord-du-Québec, seek to respond to the crying need for qualified teachers in schools throughout the province.
The first cohorts will be trained by the start of the 2022 school year, and admissions are already open.
Teachers sought for classroom management study
Anne-Michèle Delobbe is a doctoral student in Educational Administration and Evaluation at Université Laval. As part of her thesis, she is developing a questionnaire that includes different situations related to classroom management. This tool was developed in collaboration with classroom management experts.
She is now seeking the help of high school teachers to validate the scenarios. If you agree to contribute to her project, your task is to complete a questionnaire consisting mainly of 23 management scenarios for which you must select the behaviour you would adopt (spontaneously). The estimated time to complete the questionnaire is one hour. You can complete it in several times by recording it. You have until June 27 to return it; gift cards will be drawn from the respondents.
If you have any questions or suggestions, you can contact her at any time at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org

The first indigenous FabLabs: where cultural and digital meet
The First Peoples Innovation Centre (FPIC) has established the first Aboriginal FabLab in Canada. A FabLab is a space that offers the opportunity to explore different avenues of creation and fabrication through the provision of a space and modern means. By adding a cultural and traditional component to this concept, the CIPP allows Aboriginal youth to project themselves into the future while reconnecting with their roots. The Centre de transfert en réussite éducative du Québec (CTREQ) was fortunate to collaborate with the CIPP in the creation of transfer tools for the promotion of this project.
