The library offers Research Workshops, a self-enrolling Canvas with self-paced modules to help students with their research assignments. Each module focuses on a different component of the research process and provides practical information and tips that students can incorporate into their papers or projects. The course works as a companion to research assignments. Faculty may assign students specific or multiple modules. Upon completion of a module, students will take an assessment in order to earn a badge. The badges are stored within the course and can be used to verify that a module’s requirements have been met.
