Teaching Students How To Read and Critically Evaluate Scientific Literature
Tuesday, October 6th, 2015
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Seigle 208, Danforth campus
In this advanced-level workshop, we will discuss effective strategies for teaching students how to critically read and evaluate scientific articles. Strategies we will discuss include using technology to help students learn to annotate as they read, designing in-class activities to help students build critical reading skills, and developing individual and group assignments to help students learn to read and understand scientific literature.
This is an elective workshop for the WU-CIRTL program.
Presenters: Jacinta Mutambuki, Ph.D., STEM Education Postdoctoral Research Associate and Denise Leonard, Ph.D., Assistant Director
This workshop is open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM, and is part of the STEM Pedagogies series.
Registration for this workshop will open on Tuesday September 22.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend introductory-level Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by participation in TA-Training workshops.
