I’m really excited to announce the next technology/pedagogy workshop, “Zotero 101” with Katie Morrissey. Katie is a Plan H (Media, Cinema, Digital Studies) Ph.D. student who is an experienced Zotero user with lots of practical knowledge to share.
Friday March 9, 3:15-4:45pm, Curtin Hall 108
Zotero is a free, open-source tool which helps students and researchers create a research and readings database. “It is a powerful and adaptable tool for scholars and educators of all stripes. It can be whatever you need it to be, whether you are a student, a teacher, a researcher, or just someone looking for a better way to manage your data. Its many features can be used in myriad combinations, tailored to particular fields and projects. Residing directly within your web browser, Zotero is central to the entire research process, allowing its users to pick and choose the features that are best-suited to their ends, merging them into a quick and efficient workflow” (zotero.org).
Streamline big research projects like seminar papers and dissertations by managing your citations and saving sources in one place. Create a library or collection of resources for your class to use, or have students build a library of references together. Prepare for prelim exams by reviewing your entries, similar to flashcards.
To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Laptops are provided, but since this event will guide you through the installation of Zotero in your word processor, it would be best to use your own laptop. If you miss the event, I will post a review right here on this blog.
