About this Event

This session will give you a thorough and interactive introduction to SAGE Research Methods, a database containing thousands of resources, dedicated to research methods across a range of subject areas. The session will cover content and tools you can use in order to improve the research skills and capabilities of your users, and build your confidence and experience in using the database for future study and research projects. SAGE Research Methods can be your guide in overcoming common research challenges – whether you want to conduct more effective literature reviews, construct a manageable research question, learn how to prepare data ready for analysis, disseminate your research more widely, or understand challenging research methods terminology. The final interactive activity involves designing a reading list for an information skills workshop, lecture, or a current assignment or project you are working on. The reading list can then be used outside of the session to compliment what you are working on at the moment. Participants will have plenty of time to ask questions, so that by the end of the session, everyone will be ready to start exploring the platform independently and confidently. This session would be perfect for faculty members who are teaching Research Methods courses, supervising researchers, or even those conducting their own research projects!
