Instructor: Anne Trepanier
About the instructor: Originally from Quebec City, I graduated in history at Laval University. I then mastered in rhetoric at McGill University, after which I did a second master in political philosophy at Centre Raymon-Aron (EHESS, Paris). I came back to Laval University for a doctorate in Quebec history and historiography and then completed a post-doctorate in sociology at the University of Ottawa.
As a professional educator, I see my task as fostering experiential learning, and I view students as equals. To me, mutual respect is a key component of both teaching and learning. Inspired by Socratic methods, my teaching is student-centered. I see myself as a tour guide, choosing the scenic route and allowing students to have a broader view, conceptual, theoretical or historical, before diving in their own projects.
