This course will be based on lectures, seminars, and laboratory work. Students may be required to collaborate on specified assignments.
Students are expected to be self-motivated and to demonstrate professionalism, which includes active participation, good attendance, punctuality, effective collaboration, ability to meet deadlines, presentation skills, and accurate self-evaluation.
Evaluation will be based on this general format:
|Primary research project (interview- and/or survey-based)||25%|
|Secondary research project (integrated portfolio including proposal, print, on-line materials)||40%|
Students will be introduced to a wide variety of primary and secondary research resources available to them in a broad range of formats. They will develop a critical awareness of the information world, its formal and informal rules, and its practical application in writing assignments. They will also develop skills in gathering and managing information to prepare for researched writing tasks.
A list of recommended textbooks and/or materials will be provided on the instructor’s course outline, available to students at the beginning of each semester. Typically, this course requires reading of materials on reserve and/or available free on the Web.
Course Guidelines for previous years are viewable by selecting the version desired. If you took this course and do not see a listing for the starting semester / year of the course, consider the previous version as the applicable version.
