Research Productivity Workshop Series

Background and Statement of Need

Background 

 

The Research Productivity workshop series will introduce students to major principles of digital information literacy and to practical strategies for conducting digital research. Through this series of hour-long workshops, students will learn how to search for and identify relevant research and how to organize and present that research clearly. The workshop sessions will run the disciplinary gamut, and students in the humanities, social sciences, and hard sciences alike will benefit from the digital research skills reviewed. 

 

Statement of Need 

To be productive, researchers must identify relevant research, sift through and organize it to suit their scholarly purposes, and present it effectively to others. Researchers are apt to get stuck at any of these steps. This workshop series aims to give attendees concise, engaging, and practical guidance for finding, understanding, applying, and sharing research. 

 

Workshop Dates and Times

All workshops are from 1-2 p.m. via Zoom
