Abstract

Many technical programs offered to small cohorts score below the viability threshold. This situation has consequences for the students and their instructors. The instructors find that their task becomes increasing difficult, and questions are raised about the diversity of learning and resources offered to the students. The concept of a "cégep network" would allow colleges to restructure the way these programs are offered. The project brings together students and instructors from five programs in 11 cégeps in an exploratory action-training study. The CBAM model (concerns based adoption model) was chosen as the principal theoretical framework. The results demonstrate that synchronous environments made available to the instructors were adopted to support the work of the instructor teams and conduct learning activities. A variety of factors conducive to telecollaboration were also discovered, with pedagogical harmonization between the instructors being an essential condition.
