Teaching in the Cegep milieu presents its own unique set of challenges. The Universite de Sherbrooke PERFORMA Master Teacher Program is a credit program designed and taught by college teachers, for college teachers.
The new PERFORMA MTP program consists of three stages: the Graduate Certificate in College Teaching (15 credits), the Diploma in College Teaching (an additional 15 credits) and the Master’s in Education (an additional 15 credits).
The program includes courses in psychology, sociology, and philosophy, as well as many aspects of best teaching practices. Through PERFORMA, college teachers not only have an opportunity to learn more about pedagogy and their students, but also to get to know colleagues from other departments and colleges. The emphasis is on constructivist pedagogy, and becoming a reflective practitioner with a solid foundation in all aspects of teaching at the Cegep level.

“At the end of the program, participants will have acquired a broader and deeper understanding of the foundations of college teaching, enabling them to make more enlightened decisions regarding curricular, didactic and pedagogical processes, designs or approaches.”
