A success for FADIO Distance Learning Week

The 4th edition of Distance Learning Week was held from February 22 to 26. With over 1,200 registrations, an increase of 258 % compared to last year, this edition was by far the most coveted since the inception of the event.

The 2021 lineup covered several topics of interest in distance education, including assessment, feedback and the impact of social media in pedagogy. “It seemed important to us, given the current context, to pay particular attention to the content of the programming this year. The subjects presented were chosen judiciously, taking into account the needs of education stakeholders, ”emphasizes Mylène Simard, FADIO coordinator.

All the conferences presented as part of the FAD Week are available on the FADIO website, including the conference given by our colleague from École branchée, Maxime Laflamme, a report of which will be published in the coming days.

Video clips I study remotely

A series of five free video clips, produced by lecturer-researchers specializing in distance training and educational technology at TELUQ University, are now accessible from the website

The topics covered in the capsules are as follows:

Manage your time more efficiently

Stay active and focused

Develop the best distance learning strategies

Increase and maintain motivation

Reduce stress and anxiety

Although they were designed to promote success and equip college and university students in their distance learning, some capsules could very well be useful for high school students.

A tool to guide young people to find a professional orientation

Opération Avenir is a booklet of educational and vocational guidance activities, created by Septembre éditeur, for young people in secondary school. It aims to support them in their career path and orientation, while highlighting areas and sectors experiencing strong growth. 

The 2021 edition presents 7 areas: Human resources; Aerospace; Damage insurance; Accounting, finance and management; Forestry; Pharmaceuticals and biotechnology; Information and communications technologies.

The 24-page booklet is available free of charge in print as well as in digital format to all school stakeholders who order it on

To put on the agenda: Remote, but present in secondary education

Presented from Monday March 8, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and every evening until March 18. Conferences and virtual round tables are on the program of this event, organized by the Interdisciplinary Pedagogical Council of Quebec (CPIQ), in collaboration with associative members, the National Carrefour for Professional Integration in Teaching (CNIPE), the Interuniversity Research Center on training and the teaching profession (CRIFPE) and the Faculty of Education at UQAM.

Registration and programming details are available on the CPIQ website.

A crowdfunding campaign for the Neo College

The Neo College is a popular education platform which aims to support 14-18 year olds through their transition to adulthood. The goal of the crowdfunding campaign is to help develop future online activities while leaving free access to young people. Activities will cover essential everyday topics such as politics, law, personal development, finances, physical and mental health, etc.
