- Effective Paraphrasing -
|Researchers depend on the published record when designing their studies and presenting their findings. However, to comply with copyright restrictions earlier work must be cited and, in most cases, previously published text must be paraphrased. The instructor will present several examples of accurate and readable paraphrases of typical text from published research papers. Participants will then be asked to paraphrase sentences from an Introduction.|
*This seminar will be recorded, and the video will be available on the WebClass.
