Teaching Research Methods Forum: Supporting Students with Literature Reviews

December 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Apologies – this event has been postponed. 


The Teaching Research Methods Forum is organised by the Research Methods @ SHU Hallam Guild group, and is open to anyone involved in dissertation supervision or teaching research methods at any level. The forum provides an opportunity for members to meet together to discuss common challenges and share approaches to the design and delivery of research-focused teaching.

The theme of the next forum is ‘Supporting Students with Literature Reviews‘. We will be joined by Kirsty Hemsworth (Skills Manager, Library Services), who will share some best practice approaches to guiding students through the literature review process, and will provide an overview of the support available to students through the Skills Centre.

The session will also provide the opportunity for informal discussion, to discuss the key challenges your students face in conducting literature reviews, and to share your own approach to supporting students with doing literature searches and writing reviews. Please feel free to bring with you any teaching materials, readings, exercises or other resources that you currently use for this purpose.

If you would like to join us, please sign up at the following link:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teaching-research-methods-forum-supporting-students-w-literature-reviews-tickets-210927749577

If you would be interested in giving a short presentation to the group about any aspect of your research methods teaching at one of the upcoming events, please get in touch. Future themes will include:

  • Designing generic research methods modules
  • Assessment of research methods modules
  • Introducing students to data analysis
  • Using examples and case studies
  • Using innovative approaches (e.g. games)
  • Supervising dissertations

The event will take place on Zoom, and a link will be sent to participants in advance of the session. If you have any questions, have any ideas about topics you would like to see covered in future sessions, or would like to know more about the group, please contact Kerry McSeveny, k.mcseveny@shu.ac.uk.
