Claire Bureau has been teaching for a number of years, continually adapting her methods to the challenges of each generation of students. She has been a mentor and friend to many of her colleagues. For the last 14 years, she has been the Coordinator of the Computer Information Systems Department. Acknowledging students’ fascination with games, she implemented a role-playing scenario in one of her classes. Given the game scenario’s success, she decided to present it to on Winter Ped Day as an alternate way of teaching the new generation of technology-savvy students. She was also instrumental in developing the province-wide computer science and math option for science students, and was one of the principal organizers of the Fall 2011 IT Awareness Week in Sherbrooke.
