Students: Are you looking for a two-credit course to take later this fall?
We are offering a new course – Critical Research Skills (UNIV 180A).
Through readings, class discussion and a variety of assignments that emphasize the processes involved in research, you will learn strategies for developing manageable research topics, finding and accessing information sources from the Libraries’ print and online collections as well as the open web, and evaluating information in various formats.
For the final project, you will create an infographic on a topic of your choice. Throughout the course we will explore issues related to knowledge creation and dissemination, the ethical use of information, and proper attribution in both academic and non-academic contexts.
The course will be offered 5:50-7:15 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays from Oct. 18-Dec. 8.
