Academic Research Skills

Event Date(s): 03/04/2014
Event Time(s): 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Event Description: This workshop offers an introduction to the skills required for effectively incorporating outside sources into your academic work. We will focus on learning how to properly cite sources using MLA and APA formats. We'll also talk about how to assess the quality and the usefulness of the material you find. Academic research is all about grounding your argument within a larger scholarly context, so we'll cover how to seamlessly integrate outside sources to support your points without overwhelming your own voice. Please bring a current assignment research question, or a paper-in-progress so that we can tailor the workshop to your needs.
