In a post I shared yesterday I talked about the 8 key search skills every student should have and today I am sharing with you this wonderful tutorial from Berkeley University called The Research 101 Workshop. In this workshop you will be provided with invaluable tips, ideas and activities on how to teach your students about the research process from developing a topic to finding full-text articles online.
This tutorial aims at helping students leverage practical search skills to write a research paper. Its main focus is on the process of doing research. Below is a brief synopsis of the main ideas covered in this workshop and you can check the full version of this workshop here. Use the arrow on the top right side to navigate the slides.
