Why Study Research Skills?

The importance of good research skills lies not in the challenge of accessing information on any given topic. In the age of information, it’s quite the opposite - an abundance of conflicting information to make sense of.  Becoming an effective researcher is about knowing not only where to find information, but how to scrutinise the information available to separate fact from fiction.  Not to mention, extract the most important and relevant facts from those of less significance.  The art of effective research lies in adopting a strategic approach from start to finish.  Planning, note taking, reading and analysis - important tasks that come before writing, editing and perfecting your final report. This introductory free research skills course provides an overview of the basics of effective research - ideal for anyone looking to become a more confident and efficient researcher. 

Research Skills Short Course covers the following key topics:

  • Why Are Research Skills Important?
  • Reading and Note-Taking Techniques
  • The 7±2 Rule
