Are you ever challenged to find the right words when discussing certain issues with students? Topics such as accommodations, whatever the nature, can be a bit awkward to discuss, especially when you’re not exactly sure how to phrase something. In this round-table discussion you’ll be given the opportunity to ask questions of the experts. We will have representatives from both the Multi-Faith Centre and Accessibility Services to answer your questions, provide suggestions, and share information on appropriate ways to support our students.

As the name implies, citation management tools are to help you manage citations but they can be used to manage much more than that. In this session we will look at tools like Zotero, Mendeley, Evernote and a few others that can help you get started on organizing some of that virtual clutter that you have been meaning to deal with.
