Teaching the Research Process from Research Focus to Literature Review
The Office of Student Research (OSR), the Center for Faculty Enrichment (CAFE) and Greenwood Library will sponsor a faculty development workshop on teaching the research process on January 4, 2018, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in Greenwood Library 209 A & B. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please RSVP by December 15, 2017 using this link: https://goo.gl/forms/pxc8CpL8JmqeU0m13 .
This workshop will focus on teaching students how to find, evaluate, synthesize and use research sources to help them select research topics, design research questions/hypotheses, and develop comprehensive literature reviews. Faculty are asked to bring a current research-based assignment to revamp during the workshop. After discussing some of the challenges faculty face in teaching the research process, we will discuss effective instructional strategies and available resources. In the afternoon, faculty will have the opportunity to revise their assignments and receive feedback from other workshop participants.
Please direct any questions to Dr. Crystal S. Anderson, Office of Student Research, firstname.lastname@example.org.
