Research Techniques and Tools – The Presentation

This is the Flowgram for my upcoming presentation on Research Techniques and Tools that was mentioned in the previous post. I will be presenting this to level 3 engineering students at 5.00 pm on Thursday 16th October in the Faraday Lecture Theatre (and you are welcome to come along) but as promised, I thought that I would give the learning-lab community a sneak preview. Although developed for my module EG-353 Research Project, and aimed at a particular group of students, much of what I say about the library resources and the use of Web 2.0 technology for finding materials, recording what’s found, reflecting on what’s been read or discovered, writing up research results, time management and backing up would be applicable to most disciplines I think. Any feedback you have (particularly from the library professionals!) would be gratefully received.


  1. Very comprehensive. Is Googlecentricity a new word?

  2. @chris hall: I realise that I come over as a bit of a Google fan boy … but so long as they don’t become evil that’s ok … isn’t it? Still I could be a lemming running towards armaggeddon.
