Teaching the Research Process from Research Focus to Literature Review

January 9, 2019, 9:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Library 209 A&B

 

The Office of Student Research (OSR), the Center for Faculty Enrichment (CAFE) and Greenwood Library will sponsor a faculty development workshop on teaching the research process on January 9, 2019, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in Greenwood Library 209 A & B. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Participants will receive a $500 stipend. Workshop participants will be expected to do about 1-2 hours of “homework” prior to the workshop. This workshop is facilitated by Dr. Pamela Tracy, Director, CAFE: Center for Faculty Enrichment and Jennifer Beach, Research Services and Instructional Librarian.

This workshop will focus on teaching students how to find, evaluate, synthesize and use research sources to help them select research topics, design research questions/hypotheses, and develop comprehensive literature reviews. Faculty are asked to bring a current research-based assignment to revamp during the workshop. After discussing some of the challenges faculty face in teaching the research process, we will discuss effective instructional strategies and available resources.  In the afternoon, faculty will have the opportunity to revise their assignments and receive feedback from other workshop participants.

Space is limited to 25 participants. Registration is required. Please RSVP by December 14, 2018. Please direct questions to Dr. Crystal Anderson, Director, Office of Student Research, andersoncs2@longwood.edu.
