ONLINE & INTERACTIVE: How to read academic texts, peer reviewed articles and books (Natural and Physical Sciences, including Health and Engineering)

If you have loads of articles to read, and do not know where to start, this is an interactive workshop for you! Any student is welcome, whether you are wanting to learn how to read an academic text, or how to fine tune your academic article reading skills with scientific publications. We will also guide you through scientific article structure and touch on some basic speed reading skills. The workshop will also teach you how to read and record appropriately so you can know how to avoid plagiarism.

You will achieve critical thinking skills in reading texts, from this workshop.
