Essential Research Skills workshop series

Set yourself up for academic success by learning essential research skills that can help you save time, get better grades, deepen your engagement with your subject, and boost your confidence. Participants learn how to develop successful research questions; how to effectively search for quality resources; how to critically evaluate and choose the best sources; and how to use information responsibly. These are also skills that employers say they’re looking for.

Take these workshops individually or take all four for credit in the Co-Curricular Record. Each workshop will be offered several times over the year - check back for more dates.
