The REFAD 2022 Grand Gathering opened with a conference by Cathia Papi, professor at TÉLUQ University. Her presentation focused on the place of distance education in the world of education and the workplace. She reviewed the history of distance education and presented the main challenges of this practice.
Before concluding the 2021-2022 school year, another great event is on the horizon for the École branchée team as the Grand rassemblement REFAD 2022 will be held online from June 7 to 10, bringing together Francophone distance education stakeholders from across Canada.
Pupils and students had the opportunity to comment on their online learning experience over the past year during a panel discussion recently presented by REFAD. Among the panelists, future teachers testified to certain learnings that will guide their approach to their careers.
REFAD has published a study entitled “Management of educational establishments in the era of digitalization”. The guide is intended for all those involved in distance learning and digital technology within their establishment.
On the occasion of its annual conference, REFAD is looking for presenters for communications that will go off the beaten track while presenting innovative practices in the field of distance and online training.
On Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), REFAD is offering a special workshop on the evolution of distance education in Canadian universities and colleges and the results of the 2018 National Survey.
For the start of 2019, REFAD is offering six distance education development workshops for secondary and post-secondary teachers, administrators and resource persons (tutors, counselors, technicians, etc.).
