Supervision of pre-service teacher : using Internet collaborative tools to support their return to their region of origin

Authors: Hamel, Christine
Abstract: As part of the bachelor's degree in Secondary Education at Laval University, students have the option of completing a final practicum in their region of origin. The structure of this final practicum requires new configurations in order to meet not only the requirements of practical training in teaching, but also the needs of remote communities who want to see students return home after their studies. This article aims to examine the various mechanisms put in place during an experimental design for academic proximal supervision of a practicum conducted with the assistance of information technology and communication, in particular video-conferencing and an electronic forum. The results show that video-conferencing can reproduce the main steps of the practicum and the electronic forum increases the interactions between pre-service teachers. The practice of university supervisor is transformed while preserving the triad between him, the cooperative teacher and pre-service teacher.
