Critically evaluating information (STEM)

Microsoft Teams
Tuesday 27th February 2024 (14:00-15:00)

This session is suitable for undergraduates (year two onwards) and masters students studying STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.

About the session

In this session discover how to think critically when reading and evaluating information you find through your literature searches in STEM, particularly papers found in published journals.

You’ll learn why it’s important to critically evaluate information before using it in coursework, and be introduced to a series of questions (who, where, when, why, how) to help you assess the quality and reliability of published literature.
