  • Why Are Research Skills Important? In this day and age, it may seem silly to talk about research skills. However, there are some real benefits to honing your ability to find good, reliable information.
  • Basic Skills This session will explore three fundamental skills needed to perform good research: reading, note-taking, and memory recall.
  • Planning Your Research Strategy Now that you have some basic skills, it’s time to start putting it into action. This session will explore a research model and how to get ready to hit the books.
  • Where to Look and What to Look For When you’re researching, think beyond search engines and libraries. This session will cover the differences between primary and secondary sources and how to analyze a source’s credibility
  • Finding Information the Old-Fashioned Way Next, participants will learn how to use reference sources, journals, trade publications, and their network as research sources.
  • Researching with the Internet At first glance, the Internet seems like a wonderful research tool. However, not all websites are credible. This session will give participants some tools for assessing the credibility of any site. We will also provide a list of some sites that are currently authentic and reliable. Social publication sites like Wikipedia will also be covered.
  • Getting Ready to Write This session will give participants a way to organize all their information before they write. Outlines will also be covered.
  • Putting Pen to Paper The final session of this workshop will cover writing basics, revision tips, source documentation, proper attribution, plagiarism, documentation styles, and bibliographies
  • Workshop Wrap-Up At the end of the workshop, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and complete an action plan
