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.

 

Essential Research Skills: Getting Started

Location: Robarts LIbrary. e-classroom, 4th floor, room 4033. Directions

Description: 84% of students say getting started is the hardest part of the research process - understanding what’s required, where to start with an unfamiliar topic, and how to wrestle a broad topic into something more focussed and workable.. Through lecture, discussion and hands-on exercises, this workshop will help you:

  • assess your own confidence levels with the different parts of the process
  • understand the requirements of an assignment
  • identify different starting points (includes how to use Wikipedia and how not to)
  • use a variety of tools to develop sound research topics

Questions? Please contact Eveline Houtman.

Other workshops in the series:

  • Finding Scholarly Sources
  • Choosing the Best Sources for Your Topic
  • Citing and Organizing Your Work
