“Organizing and Using Information Resources: How Faculty and Students Integrate EndNote into their Courses” is set for Friday, Sept. 17, noon to 1:30 p.m., in Innovation Hall, Room 334. Presenters are Department of English faculty members Amelia Rutledge, Cynthia Patterson, and Dorothy Raffel, and New Century College faculty member Jim Young.

“EndNote is a powerful, integrated application that allows users to create a personalized database in which they can store references to information sources,” says Young, adding that George Mason has had access to the campuswide software license since January.

“Faculty and students love the feature that allows them to format references in their papers,” he says. “In addition to utilizing EndNotes’ in-text citation feature called Cite While You Write, students can easily create bibliographies.”

The EndNote session will include information on how the software is being used in face-to-face and distance-learning courses, as well as implementation strategies in varied learning environments.

The session is cosponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Division of Instructional and Technology Support Services’ Instructional Resource Center. No registration is required, but those who RSVP by the end of business today will receive a free lunch. E-mail Laurie Fathe, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence, at lfathe@gmu.edu.

The next Showcase event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 6, when Mills Kelly and Michael O’Malley from the Center for History and New Media present “Using Technology in Teaching.” For a complete listing of Showcase events for the semester, see the web site.
