    Active learning at the Royal Military College of Canada

    21 May 2018

    Dr. Tony Bates, the TPIE forum’s keynote speaker

     

    Please see Dr. Tony Bates's article on Active learning at the Royal Military College of Canada.

    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.

    Brigadier-General Sébastien Bouchard, Commandant RMC opens RMC’s 9th Technological and Pedagogical Innovation in Education Forum in Currie Hall.

    Dr. Tony Bates, the forum’s keynote speaker, discussing the Canadian experience with innovation and online learning.
