[ONLINE] Addressing Research Challenges with Sage Skills & Sage Research Methods

[ONLINE] Addressing Research Challenges with Sage Skills & Sage Research Methods Online

Research presents challenges, both to those engaged in research as well as to those teaching, advising, or instructing others on the research process. This session will provide an overview of Sage Skills: Student Success, a resource that supports the development of key research skills, and Sage Research Methods, a resource that guides users through every step of the research process.

Sage Skills: Student Success empowers students to develop and practice a wide variety of academic and personal skills necessary to successfully transition to campus life and enable lifelong learning. This session will take a closer look at skills and topics that address research challenges and will highlight how the resource provides a flexible and engaging learning journey through self-assessments, interactive scenarios, downloadable exercises, original videos, and more.

As the ultimate methods library, Sage Research Methods is designed to help learn, teach, and explore methods across the social sciences and STM disciplines. This session will highlight a variety of research tools and content available at University of Calgary, including a brand-new module dedicated to diversifying and decolonizing research, and will explore how the tools, content, and platform features can help users address and overcome research challenges.

As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify skills and topics in Sage Skills that support the development of key research skills
  • Apply the self-assessment feature in Sage Skills to determine areas for skill development
  • Search and browse for information in Sage Research Methods across a variety of content types
  • Access and use research tools in Sage Research Methods for step-by-step guidance through the research process
