Critical Reading and Writing in the Social Sciences: Introduction to a Structured Approach
Domain: A2 Cognitive abilities

Format of Workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: All

How would you like to become a more constructively critical reader? And more persuasive writer about what you have read? This workshop considers academic enquiry as a two-way process where we read about others’ arguments, then write our own argument based on our reading, plus our empirical investigation. The structured approach will help you to:
* engage critically with texts, especially academic journal articles using a framework to check whether researchers make a convincing case to back-up their claims
* incorporate the results of your critical engagement into a comparative review of several texts or a larger literature review, as required for a doctoral thesis
The approach will be particularly useful if you have not studied within a western academic tradition before.

Presenters
Professor Mike Wallace
