CUT Research Projects Consultation Session (CTE194)Export this event to calendar

Monday, February 26, 2018 — 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM EST

Location: EV1 241

Facilitators: Svitlana Taraban-Gordon (CTE), Tommy Mayberry (CTE) and Nadine Fladd (Writing and Communication Centre)


Doing a multi-sourced literature review within higher education literature and synthesizing key research ideas and findings in a paper/scholarly workshop can seem like a daunting task.  In this hands-on session, you will have the opportunity to produce a rough outline of your main deliverable (paper or mini-workshop) and receive feedback on the effectiveness of your plan. Through a series of guided exercises and dedicated writing time, you will be able to make progress on your paper/workshop and receive feedback from your peers, CTE facilitators and a consultant from the Writing and Communication Centre.

Pre-session activity

You should attend this working session if:

  • you have your 10 key literature sources submitted on Waterloo LEARN and approved by CTE

You should bring to this session:

  • your laptop or writing device of your own choice (e.g., notebook, paper, post-it notes)
