The Zotero Bibliographic Management Tool

Published December 7, 2014  |  Human Sciences

Dany Thibault Teacher, Collège Montmorency

The Zotero bibliographic management tool is free and easy to use. It is also versatile since it can output various bibliographic styles adapting to different contexts. It addresses both teachers and students in both college and university communities. Zotero becomes even more effective when users create a free account on Zotero.org. By creating such an account, users can make a backup of bibliographical documents on the web, and can synchronize documents between multiple computers. Through these accounts, it also becomes possible to create groups to share sources. This is the perfect tool to optimize team work!

Published October 30, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Joanne McCalla Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Joanne McCalla takes a no-nonsense approach to information technology in her teaching. Animated by a real need to help her students, she only uses IT when she needs it and only uses what she needs of it. This is one very successful way to use technology and still stay in charge. It reflects Joanne's problem-based approach to teaching which she has outlined in the Journal of Chemical Education and now in our pages.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
