Teachers are invited to a discussion about research focused on the development of student judgement in authentic learning situations. The research, conducted by Marie-France Deschênes et al, focuses on the development of student judgement in Nursing courses that employ high-fidelity simulators/mannequins to support experiential learning. Teachers of all faculties should find it stimulating, especially those interested in how to encourage students to hone their judgement-making skills, autonomy and metacognition.

The online discussion will be held in French on Tuesday December 6th from 1:30 to 3pm. Participants will meet researchers focused on college education and will have the opportunity to discuss the results of this research and its practical implications.

To prepare for the meeting, participants are invited to read the article “Le développement du jugement en situation authentique. L’apprentissage expérientiel dans un contexte de simulation pour une pratique professionnelle sécuritaire” published in the fall 2016 issue of Pédagogie collégiale. (N.B. print copies are also available in the Faculty Deans’ offices). The article discusses the pedagogical use of these simulators at different CEGEPs, including Vanier. Participants interested in reading the original research report, Le développement du jugement clinique infirmier lors d’activités en situation clinique haute fidélité (SCHF),” can access it on the CDC site.

Registration can be done either by email ( or phone (514 843-8491).

The discussion is the fifteenth activity offered in the series Avec un grand R, prepared and presented by ARC (l’Association pour la recherche au collégial), le Centre de documentation collégiale (CDC) and l’Association québécoise de pédagogie collégiale (AQPC).
