Welcome to the online, self-paced, version of the Finding & Using Sources workshop. Since you will be working on this at your own pace it is important for you to set aside the appropriate amount of time for each portion of the workshop to complete the activities outlined. The amount of time can vary from person to person, but the most important thing is to try and make sure you have the time to meaningfully engage in the inquiry process. The research, writing, and reading processes are social in nature, so make sure to take advantage of feedback from others in your group, class, and the Research & Writing Studio. You can discuss ideas and ask questions using the green "Ask Us" chat box below when the Studio is open.
