The goal for this workshop is to help students identify where and how to look for educational literature, and critically evaluate the information they find. Strategies for searching academic databases, as well as free online resources will be explored, and participants will learn how to examine and analyze their sources for appropriateness to their research projects.  This workshop has two online sessions, and participants are required to attend both. Sessions are Friday, October 20 and 27 at 2-3:30PM ET. Learn more.
