Developing Your Research Topic

This workshop will help you strengthen your thesis while you do your research! The process of writing a paper is as much a creative experience as it is a matter of finding sources to cite; the more you learn about your topic, the more likely you are to update your original thesis. Join us to see how searching with keywords offers many avenues to make your paper the best it can be. (Faculty Flex Eligible)
