Navigate your way through the research cycle

prism

Are you a postgraduate student or Higher Degree Research (HDR) candidate? Wondering how to get the skills to achieve at University? The Postgraduate Research Information Skills Modules is the resource for you.

The online training modules will help you navigate your way through the research cycle. There are three sections: discover, manage and publish.  Each section will help you build your knowledge base and direct you to additional resources.

The Discover section is a ‘pre-flight check’ to help you focus on conducting independent research using Griffith University library resources. It will also teach you how to keep up-to-date in your field.

Manage looks at best practices and tools for managing your information and research data. It includes tips on how to organise and manage your literature.

Publish looks at networks and technologies to support collaboration with other researchers, find the best publishing outlets, measure research impact and discover opportunities for research funding.

We hope you find the Postgraduate Research Information Skills Modules engaging and helpful. Remember, you can contact a library specialist if you need more support.

This Week in the Library – Week 3

this-week-in-the-library

Let’s take a moment to reflect… on how to write a reflective assignment. Reflective writing in an assignment means you are making a link between your experience and the course content; therefore clarifying the relationship between theory and practice.

Upon reflection, do you need to develop your reflective writing skills? Attend the Writing a reflective assignment workshop this week. They are being held at the Gold Coast, South Bank and Nathan.

Library and Learning Services workshops are FREE and available to all students, HDR candidates and staff. To view the entire workshop timetable, please visit the Workshops and Training web page.

You should attend the Analysing assignment questions workshop held on Monday and Wednesday this week. This workshop will focus on interpreting the assignment question to understand the requirements of the task. The session will also cover guidelines for narrowing the topic, applying the assessment criteria and initial assignment planning. You know, all the stuff you need to get started on that assignment.

So why should you attend a workshop on Reading and note taking strategies? You can read (obvs) and you’ve been known to jot down the odd note or two. Just the other day, you made a note to prepare yourself for uni; it was a mental note, but it was still a note.

The Reading and note taking strategies workshop will focus on strategies for reading and note taking from lectures, texts and research studies with specific strategies for locating the academic argument and summarising.  Book in now!

Library and Learning Services workshops are FREE and available to all students, HDR candidates and staff. To view the entire workshop timetable, please visit the Workshops and Training web page.
