Student Development Department
The quality of your dissertation is directly related to the quality of the sources you use. Complete an online tutorial before the session for an introduction to evaluating resources at your own pace, and then come along to the live session to practice evaluating sources with your peers.
The two activities combined will get you thinking about which kind of resources are appropriate to use in your work, and which are not, and will also include practical guidelines and tips for distinguishing respected academic publications/websites from rogue or predatory resources. The online tutorial will be circulated to registered attendees before the session.
