Critical Thinking and Reading: what, why and how to read.

Critical Thinking and Reading: what, why and how to read. Online

Novice/ Intermediate / Advanced Level:  Attempting to read academic literature may seem overwhelming and confusing. Should you read a text from beginning to end? How do you know which bits are the most relevant? In this workshop you will learn why it’s important to use academic literature in your assignments and what are the sources you should be reading. You will discover some of the key approaches to reading such as skimming, scanning and intensive reading.  The workshop will also cover tips for reading critically and how to effectively manage your academic reading.

The workshop is a 45 minute presentation with additional time for questions and answers.
