Research toolkit – an online course

This short online learning course for teachers and school library teams will highlight the skills and tools required for 21st-century research.

The four-unit, self-paced program will enable participants to sharpen their research techniques, use the latest web tools, and support students to research effectively in the changing online environment.

We will focus on:

  • search concepts, strategies and skills for a range of search engines and repositories
  • online sources and resources
  • web tools for note-taking, reference, annotation and information management.

This hands-on course is part of the Personal Learning Network program. It offers online mentoring and support, relevant information, great examples of web 2.0 in action, regular web conferences, and a wealth of trusted resources for you to explore at your own pace.

The next Research Toolkit course will begin on 13 October 2014. Bookings are now open.

Presented in association with the School Library Association of Victoria.
