Research skills can lead to success in school and beyond, but many students have questions about where to start. Teens and adults, here’s your chance to hear award-winning UBC professor Christopher Rea discuss his recent book, Where Research Begins: Choosing a Research Project That Matters to You (and the World), co-written with Thomas S. Mullaney. Topics will include: transforming a topic into a set of concrete and compelling questions, finding useful sources, dealing with mental roadblocks, and staying motivated.
This event is for you, if you:
- have difficulty choosing a research topic
- feel intimidated by or unqualified to do research
- feel like your research topic was imposed by someone else
- want to learn new ways to think about how to do research.
Learn how to design a research project that interests you, and why research is for everyone.
This program is suitable for high school and post-secondary students, parents, and anyone interested in research. Best for ages 16+.
