Screening & Appraising Results

Screening & Appraising Results

In the era of “fake news”, it is not just the news that needs a critical lens. In research, appraisal is a process that extends from selecting a source of information to choosing individual studies for a literature review. Take this opportunity to hone your ability to evaluate the quality of information across a wide spectrum of resources. Skills taught in this session will include using the CRAAP test to assess websites, learning about critical appraisal tools for journal articles, and evaluating the appropriateness of methodologies for answering different types of research questions. Be aware, be vigilant, and make informed choices about the sources you use for work or research.

This event is part of the  Lunch & Learn Series: Information in Action – From Research to Practice.

In Person: Room 114, Centre for Clinical Research, 5790 University Ave, Halifax
