November 2020
The leaves have pretty much fallen and the days are shortening. It is time to take advantage of the vestiges of summer and get outside before the cold winds of winter are at our doors. In this issue, we are pushing a lot of indoor activities to fill the chilling months to come. Have a look, click a link, and browse what we have to offer. Stay warm and stay safe!

Open Sessions on PD à la carte

We were happy to launch our open workshops on Tuesday, November 3. If you missed the first two sessions, screencasting will be back in a month or so. This week, we will focus on copyright. We will address questions on how to navigate copyrighted materials and discuss how Creative Commons licenses can help you create and/or use existing online resources without breaking copyright laws. Join us on November 10 or November 12 at 3pm. On November 17 and 19 the topic will be student autonomy. The Zoom meeting information is in the PD à la carte calendar.


Since the beginning of the year, the RECIT team has offered 16 separate PD activities throughout the province. We are very happy to support you with PD that affects what happens in the classroom - be it online, in person, or a combination of both.

Our services remain adaptable to your needs, whether it be a half day workshop or short coaching sessions with one or two teachers. The RECIT team is always ready to lend a hand.

We are adding personalised support as a way to help individual teachers move along the hybrid teaching continuum towards a better understanding of online learning and teaching. Sessions can be structured to meet the needs of each teacher. They can be isolated or recurring, targeting specific goals related to online pedagogy.

Send us a request via and we will see how we can help support your online practice.

This month, our partners James and Daniel at RÉCIT-VT have revamped their website. Click on the screenshot below to see the sleek new look.

James hosted a slew of webinars and AMAs (ask me anything) for the VT community, which were available through the PD à la carte calendar.

In collaboration with Western Quebec Career Centre (WQSB), RECIT VT is organizing an online training session in the month of February. They are still in the early stages of planning but can confirm they will have top trainers from Microsoft, Google, and Moodle. Visit the RECIT VT website for info and this newsletter for updates when they become available.
