Writing Effective Literature Reviews – Synchronous Online Workshop
May 27, 2021 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am EDT
This synchronous online workshop is taught by Dr. Jane Freeman
Like research papers and theses, thesis and grant proposals require graduate students to situate their work within the context of other research in their field(s). A well constructed literature review will help you to clarify key points for your reader such as why your work needs to be done, how it is original, and why your proposed method is appropriate. In this one hour online workshop we will examine characteristics of both short and long literature reviews, common mistakes students make when reviewing research in their field, and strategies for increasing the effectiveness of literature reviews. The material covered will be relevant to the literature-review segments of proposals, research papers, and theses.
This is the second of 4 workshops in the Graduate School Fundamentals workshop series.
This workshop will be offered live online and will not be recorded. Please register to receive a link to join the workshop at the scheduled time.
