The Noʻeau Center and the James & Abigail Campbell Library are again teaming up for a series of online workshops aimed at helping students better research and write class papers.

The Research and Writing (RaW) Skills workshops begin at 5 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 6, and will be followed by three other sessions. The workshops are meant to assist students through all the steps of doing research and writing an effective paper for any class assignment. These workshops will be hosted live and online via Zoom.

Students who are in the beginning stages of a writing assignment, those who have not begun formal research for their topic, and others who struggle with narrowing or broadening their topics are encouraged to attend the first workshop. Students will also learn how and where to look up appropriate background information using reference texts.

Students can register online at https://goo.gl/forms/o93BpDAjdoVivwXH2. They will be given an email notification with instructions on how to access the workshop.  

These remaining workshops are scheduled on the following dates:

  • The Research Process. Wednesday, Sept. 19. Best practices for starting your research process, as well as strategies to find scholarly sources for your topic.
  • Outlining, Writing and Rewriting, Thursday, Oct. 4. Strategies to use when beginning to write your essay along with tools for crafting a paragraph.
  • Citations and Polishings. Wednesday, Oct. 17. How to tackle finishing an essay;  guidance on creating citations and references as well as tips on revising.

All workshops will be from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Students can register for workshops here: https://goo.gl/forms/QnsQPUXV5W9I5wVv2. For more information or to see info related to workshops they may have missed, students can go to our RaW website at bit.ly/uhworaw.
