IN PERSON & PARTICIPATIVE: Developing a Literature Review (Science)

 

About this workshop

This workshop will introduce students to the principals and practices of effectively interrogating the literature in preparation for developing strong academic arguments:

  • Concept mapping your topic (briefly revisited)
  • Thematic and active reading
  • Developing critical questions
  • literature review matrix
  • Analysing the literature

This workshop (2 of 4) can be attended as a ‘standalone’ session; however, it is most valuably experienced as part of the full series, which navigates through the research process.
