From August 15 to 17, more than fifty teachers gathered for the 14e edition of the ICT camp of the Federation of Private Educational Institutions (FÉEP).

The camp, which was held at the Auberge du Lac-à-l'Eau-Claire, in St-Alexis-des-Monts, offered various training activities focused on the following themes:

  • Use of various interactive questionnaires in order to promote modeling of the reflective approach in learning while obtaining feedback on the progress of students aware of this same process;
  • Holding of an “EdCamp” type activity allowing participants to share their expertise or experience by expanding their network of contacts;
  • Exploration of strategies and tools to make students more active in their learning;
  • Transformation of its current learning activities through a collaborative writing strategy so that students co-construct their knowledge and develop their skills;
  • Boosting an embodied school through various transformational leadership strategies: how to share leadership so that all school stakeholders can exercise it in their respective daily functions?

The participants will not only have been able to acquire new knowledge, but the activities prepared by the trainers (Claude Frenette, Marie-Claude Gauthier, Kathleen Godard and Marc-André Girard) will have enabled them to integrate this information to transform their own activities. educational. In addition, numerous discussions by participants divided into disciplinary teams made it possible to tackle active pedagogy practices, thereby bringing the collective intelligence of all these specialists to contribution in a professional development operation by peers.

Camp participants received two digital badges offered by the organization CADRE21 in order to recognize the learning achieved during these three days: the first in collaborative writing, explorer level, and the second, created especially to recognize the commitment of the participants, FÉEP-SITA CampTIC 2016.
