Throughout his career, Mr. Brouard has stood out for his enthusiasm for collaboration, his people skills and his professionalism. Always striving to improve his teaching methods and share the fruit of his work, in 2013 he designed a useful tool for individually analysing group work. Mr. Brouard has also been involved in major program evaluation operations and the success plan, and recently co-authored a report on self-evaluation of the College's quality assurance systems. This honourable mention thus recognizes Mr. Brouard's deep involvement with LaSalle College Montréal. He serves as a true role model for his colleagues.
This year's symposium on the theme Energy and Synergy... for Higher Education was held on June 3, 4 and 5, 2015 at Hôtel Le Montagnais de Saguenay, and drew 1,161 teachers, executives and professionals from colleges throughout Quebec.
