Writing is a process, a recursive process rather than a linear process. This lecture guides you through the different stages in the writing process: Planning, Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing and Proofreading. Working through the writing process can help you to become a better writer and make the task of writing less challenging.
At first deadlines always seem so far away. There’s always plenty of time. Planning ahead and managing your time when writing your paper can actually save you time. This lecture shows you different strategies to help you with time management so you can avoid leaving your paper to the last minute.
Many of the assignments you will be required to complete at the University require you to work in a group. Working together in a group can be fun and rewarding, but it can also be a challenge. This lecture will cover helpful strategies for building a positive group interaction.
A thesis statement can help you to organize your research. A working thesis statement helps to focus the search for information on your topic. That information will help you to determine what research questions need to be addressed. This lecture walks you through the stages of coming up with a topic to what are the research questions.
In an era of information overload, finding the appropriate sources for your paper is a challenge. Developing a good search strategy will save you time. This lecture focuses on search strategies and search tools that make it easier for you to find the relevant sources for your paper.
The status and quality of different sources vary a great deal. Before using a document you need to assess its reliability and credibility. This lecture will show you how to evaluate sources and also explain the difference in academic status between different publications.
When you write a paper you need to set up a system for keeping track of the sources you find during your research. Otherwise, you may find yourself scrambling at the deadline trying to remember where a source you used came from. This lecture will show you how databases and programs can help you to document your sources from the start.
Being a critical reader requires you to tell the difference between fact and opinion and examine the evidence that is being presented in the text. At the same time you also need to be aware of your own assumptions about the text you are reading. This lecture shows you how to take a critical approach to reading.
Effective note taking can help you to better understand information from lectures or reading. Good note taking can also help with, for example, focusing on what’s important, remembering information and studying for exams. This lecture explains how to effectively take notes in different settings and make them easier to read.
