QEP equals Gather Analyze Present

QEP Workshop: Are All Sources Created Equal?

Are some information sources better than others? Why do some assignments require you to use peer-reviewed articles or empirical articles? Why are some sources considered inappropriate for a research paper? In this  workshop, you will learn about different sources of information, how they are created, and ways to use them in a research project. Cultural Credit is available for this QEP workshop.
