Strategies to Support Active and Collaborative Learning

Wed, 2014-11-26 14:00 - 16:00
McIntyre Medical Building : Room 208/9, 3655 promenade Sir William Osler Montreal Quebec Canada , H3G 1Y6

In this workshop we will explore strategies to enhance students’ engagement, promote dialogue, and encourage deep learning. We will discuss the rationale for active and collaborative learning and examine methods for design and implementation in different types of courses. During the workshop you will experience a range of new strategies through demonstrations and peer sharing, and develop a plan to incorporate selected strategies into your courses.

Bilingualism over the lifespan: Changing perspectives for an evolving field

Fri, 2014-10-24 08:03

It’s a scene that plays out every day in Montreal. On the bus, in schools, in the office and at home, conversations weave seamlessly back and forth between French and English, or one of the many other languages represented on this multicultural island. It’s increasingly common to hear not two, but three different languages spoken in one short conversation.

New study examines link between brain cortex and food buying habits


MONTREAL: Will that be a pizza for you or will you go for a salad? Choosing what you eat is not simply a matter of taste, conclude scientists in a new study at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre. As you glance over a menu or peruse the shelves in a supermarket, your brain is making decisions based more on a food’s caloric content.
