Researchers and community members of all ages come together to share current university research and community-defined evidence about topics that matter to older adults. Join us to explore together through conversation and short talks about important subjects.

Next Creative Science Shop

Wednesday May 11th, 2022 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. In person at  Cavendish Mall, C-14. 5800 Cavendish Blvd, Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec – QC H4W 2T5

Learning differently is motivating!

We learn throughout all our lives. There are many more sources of education than school and many more methods than teacher-student interactions to learn new skills and creative problem-solving abilities. Our two speakers propose alternative, more inclusive and effective ways of learning. Josef Brody, retired professor of mathematics at Concordia University, will open the theme of education with alternative and motivating methods of learning in the school setting. Gilles Chiason will present his story of learning differently, despite the heavy barriers added by the system. Come join us in person at Cavendish Mall to explore alternative learning in communities and at all ages. We’d love to hear about your favorite learning methods!

Apprendre autrement, c’est motivant!

Nous apprenons tout au long de notre vie. Il existe bien plus de sources d’éducation que l’école et bien plus de méthodes que les interactions entre l’enseignant et l’élève pour acquérir de nouvelles compétences et habiletés créatives de résolution de problèmes. Nos deux intervenants proposent d’autres modes d’apprentissage, plus inclusives et efficaces. Josef Brody, professeur retraité de mathématiques à l’Université Concordia, ouvrira le thème de l’éducation avec des méthodes alternatives et motivantes d’apprentissage dans le cadre scolaire. Gilles Chiason présentera son histoire d’apprentissage autrement, malgré les lourdes barrières ajoutées par le système contre la dyslexie. Venez nous joindre en personne au Cavendish Mall pour explorer les moyens d’apprentissage alternatif dans les communautés et à tout âge. Nous aimerions connaître vos méthodes d’apprentissage préférées!
