Research Workshop - Getting Started

From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

We noticed that many of our international students had issues writing reports to our specifications, particularly in the area of citing and excessive amounts of cut and paste.

This workshop are some of our initial ideas.. so feel free to add to help us make this a useful and relevant workshop. Our initial idea is to deliver this face to face but I am keen to build up a Blended/Fully-Online WikiEducator online version.

Time: 2 x 1 hour sessions of about a week apart.

Learning outcomes

  • 1 Synthesise information and cite it
1a citing: APA referencing in text (intro)

  • 4 Where to go to learn more/better
