Guiding literature reviews (Panel)

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 -
12:00pm to 1:30pm

135 Nicholson Hall (East Bank)
Lunch is provided to registrants.

Literature reviews are commonly assigned across the university in capstone-level and graduate courses. When done well, literature reviews deepen comprehension, increase motivation, and provide authentic opportunities to engage in disciplinary and professional work. However, literature reviews also pose a number of reading and writing challenges for students as they attempt to identify, summarize, synthesize, and purposefully organize information. In this panel, faculty will describe strategies they use in their undergraduate and graduate courses to support students through the literature review process. Lunch is provided to registrants.

Panelists: John Carlis (Computer Science & Engineering), Jessica Gutknecht and Karen Ballen (Soil, Water & Climate), Andra Fjone (School of Nursing)
