CUT Research Projects Consultation Session (CTE4194)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 — 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM EDT

Location: MC 2036

Facilitators: Svitlana Taraban-Gordon (CTE)


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 and CTE facilitators.

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 have read at least 5 of your articles (if you read more, that’s great!)
  • Optional: completion of the module on writing literature reviews

You should bring to this session:

  • your laptop or writing device of your own choice (e.g., notebook, paper, post-it notes)
  • your 10 (or more) articles – hard or soft copies
  • outline or rough draft of the paper/workshop (i.e., main section headings with bullet point notes explaining what you will discuss)


  • CTE has a new registration system called GoSignMeUp. Before you can register for a workshop, you need to create an account (one time only). Once you’ve created an account, you can register for this workshop.
  • Registration is limited to CUT participants enrolled in GS 902 who have completed the Research Project (CTE146/CTE4146) workshop.


Many of our workshops have waiting lists, so if you've registered but can't attend, please cancel your registration well in advance through the registration system, so that someone else can fill your spot.
