Research is at the core of all academic activities. This class will introduce you to central strategies of critical analysis, give you guidance in how to find useable sources, how to deal with online articles and how to structure your research material. We will practice finding term paper topics, library books and articles as well as develop strategies for oral presentations and term-paper writing, including the creation of bibliographies as well as the correct citation format. While there will be reading material in this class, the focus is on practical exercises that will allow you to evaluate your personal research methods, terminology and reading habits. All material will be provided on Stud.IP.
