Comment envoyer une minorité d'étudiants surmotivés sur des objectifs pédagogiques intégrés et connexes dont le parcours est structuré ?1) Faire une courte introduction engageante (15min.) 2) Identifier la minorité surmotivée et leur distribuer un parcours. 3) Assurer une supervision mininal avec un suivi distant et ponctuel au besoin.Avec 2 exemples de parcours: une auto-initiation en 5 niveaux pour contribuer à Wikipédia; et un programme de 12 semaines pour démarrer un blogue sur un sujet de recherche.How to get the few really motivated students involved? By asking them to fulfil « side-quests » learning activities in a structured itinerary : 1) Present a short but engaging initiation [sur quoi?] (15 min.) ;2) After identifying the motivated students, give them a formal checklist [pour quoi?];3) If needed, provide minimum mentoring and follow-upHere are two examples : 5-steps self-initiation on how to contribute to Wikipedia and 12-weeks program to start a blog on research topic.

The purpose of this activity is to inspire students to adopt structured methods when they explore and retrieve information. It is based on lab notebooking methods and on managing and documenting the flow of references in Zotero, a reference management software.The first principle is based on a tree of collections to manage the references arriving in the Zotero library. Some basic methods are suggested and the students are invited to create their own. The second principle is based on standalone notes to document all the research process through online database, libraries and experts.

This module is intended to address fundamental information literacy skills appropriate for students in the first two years of college. It is designed to be incorporated into any LMS for use in both online and face to face courses. The module is divided into five self-paced chapters that progress through the stages of a student research process. Each chapter should take roughly 30 minutes to complete, and covers two to three learning outcomes that lend themselves to early college student information literacy and align with the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, adopted by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) in 2016.
