10th Technological & Pedagogical Innovation in Education Forum. (TPIEF)

On Monday May 6th 2019, RMC held its 10th Technological & Pedagogical Innovation in Education Forum. The forum was opened with welcoming remarks from the Commandant of RMC, Brigadier-General Sébastien Bouchard, followed by the Principal, Dr. Harry Kowal and the Dean of Continuing Studies, Dr. Grazia (Grace) Scoppio. The keynote speaker was Mr. Peter Wolf who provided “A Snapshot of Distance Education and Technology-Enhanced Learning at RMC”. In his address he outlined the current state and potential for the future of distance learning at RMC. This was followed by a Round Table discussion on “Dual Delivery at RMC: Positives, Pitfalls and Possibilities”.

A coffee break provided the opportunity for attendees to network and browse through a vast selection of books made available by the Canadian Defence Academy Press Book. Following the break, attendants had a choice of participating in one of three breakout workshops which covered a wide array of topics, including: an interactive session by Dr. Frédérique Offredi on “The 88 Keys for identifying problems in logic and expression on thought in texts”; a session facilitated by Dr. Lobna Cherif titled “What box? Think Positive!” which had participants dancing in the aisles; and an open discussion moderated by Mrs. Sarah Toomey on “Where do I start my library research? – How to answer that inevitable undergraduate question”. The final two sessions of the forum, touched on “Innovations in Military Education”; Maj Geneviève Audet presented “Distance Learning for the Signals Corps” and Maj Justin E.P. Behiels presented “Master Teacher Programs (MTP’s)”.

74 participants from Royal Military College of Canada (RMC), Canadian Army Doctrine and Training Centre Headquarters (CADTC HQ), Canadian Defence Academy (CDA), Canadian Army Command and Staff College (CACSC), Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre, Canadian Forces College (CFC), Canadian Forces Schools of Communications and Electronics (CFSCE), and Royal Military College Saint-Jean (RMC) attended the forum.

The event gave attendees insights into some of the possibilities of distance learning, and how they could be integrated into classrooms at RMC and, through the workshops, gave them some tools to increase their productivity.

9th RMC Technological & Pedagogical Innovation in Education Forum (TPIEF)

Tuesday, 1 May 2018, the 9th Technological and Pedagogical Innovation in Education Forum was held in Currie Hall at RMC.  Dr. Tony Bates was the keynote speaker and leveraged his nearly fifty years of working with technology in teaching to discuss how technology is changing and influencing education today.  Six other presentations covered diverse topics from “The Importance of Retrieval-Practice for Learning”, “WIFI on School Buses”, and the challenges of conducting multidisciplinary courses in academic environments.  Approximately 85 pre-registered attendees, from RMC, Military Personnel Generation HQ, Canadian Army Doctrine and Training Centre HQ, and Queen’s University attended the forum.  This event allowed faculty and other interested parties to see and hear how other education professionals have been innovating in communicating information and knowledge to students and potentially to provide them with ideas to innovate on their own and improve student access to information and knowledge.
