Zotero – A New Paradigm for Citation

Published December 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Côté Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence
Daniel Perreault Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Five years ago, when Denis saw that Zotero was free and developed by a university, he realized that it was not like a lot of software that comes from a start-up company where you don’t know whether it’s going to be there in two years or whether they have a bare bones free version, and then you have to pay for full service. He also thought that the way that it was designed as a plugin in Firefox was the way to go! It’s really easy. With just one or two clicks, you get your references in. And you have a choice of referencing styles, as well as an integration with Word! He started to use it to collect some of his references in his courses. And then at a Social Sciences Department meeting one day, he talked about it and realized that our students should all begin to use it!

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
